help window title text

9 posts in this topic

hi, i need a small script that do a simple thing, but i'm not an expert do i tryed to look in the manual but i can't really figure out how to handle this.

so i have a window (always a new title when i open) and i need that when the title of this window change, while is open, i need to click the mouse in some point of the screen.

the problem is i need it in loop, means after the title change and make the click, it should keep checking if the tile change again e do again the same thing...and again...and again o:)

any suggestion?

Hi, FrancescoCameli, welcome to the forum. We are glad to provide assistance, but are not in the business of writing scripts for you (we follow the "Teach a Man to Fish" motto). So, if the window title is changing, I would suggest looking in the help file under ControlClick. Firstly, this is much better than a mouseclick. Secondly, the example in this section shows you how to use the CLASS type for the window instead of the title. That should get you started.

If you could provide us with the CLASS type returned from the AutoIt Window Info tool (in the same directory you installed AutoIt, called Au3Info.exe), or a screenshot of the application window you're working with, we can definitely do more to assist.

So try something like this:

ControlClick("[CLASS:QWidget]", "", "<ID>");Get the control ID from the AutoIt Window Info tool.

FrancescoCameli, this function may be of use to you - WinGetTitle?

FrancescoCameli, this function may be of use to you - WinGetTitle?

my original idea was doing something like this:

x = number from 1 to 100

WinGetTitle("title" "text" notepad x")

if "x" change  than

mouseclick   "x" "y"

can i use something like this and use regex to match just the number changin in that tile?

if WinWaitClose("[REGEXPCLASS:....]") then
 
MsgBox(4096, "Test", "This box will time out in 10 seconds", 10)

the msg box it's just for example

but i can't figue out what regex use
