Getting window handle of an excel object

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to get the window handle of an excel object created earlier?

I am creating an excel object using:

_ExcelBookNew(0)
writing some stuff to it, but at some point I would like that window to be visible again, for user to see the written data, and then go back into hidden state again. I figured I could use the WinSetState function, but I need the win handle of that excel instance. Any ideas?

This should give you an idea:

#include <Excel.au3>
$oBook = _ExcelBookNew(0)
MsgBox(0, "", "Make it visible")
$oBook.Visible = True
MsgBox(0, "", "Make it invisible")
$oBook.Visible = False
_ExcelBookClose($oBook, 0)
