Handle or CLASS of a folder

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

A fast question, there is a way to recognize if the active window is a folder or not?

In a generic way, without know the title. I want to start the Func() only if the active windows is a folder and do nothing is a browser/software/cmd etc...

Thanks for any help ;)

This is correct?

While 1
If WinExists("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]") Then
MsgBox(0, 0, "It's a folder")
EndIf
Sleep(100)
WEnd

Seems work on Xp, someone want to test on Seven if work?

Not work, i start it on SciTE and it starts MsgBox ... Edited by PlayHD

This is a better approach

#include <Process.au3>
Local $pid = WinGetProcess("[active]", "")
Local $name = _ProcessGetName($pid)
Local $nFolder = $name = 'explorer.exe'
Switch $nFolder
Case 1
MsgBox(64, 'Information', 'It is a Folder')
Case Else
MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'It is not a Folder')
EndSwitch

My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.

PhoneixXL, there is only one problem, say "It's folder" also on desktop...there is a way to exclude it?

This should do the work

#include
If WinGetTitle('[active]')='' Then Exit MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'It is Desktop possibly')
Local $pid = WinGetProcess("[active]", "")
Local $name = _ProcessGetName($pid)
Local $nFolder = $name = 'explorer.exe'
Switch $nFolder
Case 1
MsgBox(64, 'Information', 'It is a Folder')
Case Else
MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'It is not a Folder')
EndSwitch
