Need help on WinGetPos()

Recommended Posts

I have Notepad and am running 1 copy of Notepad in sandboxie and 1 copy of the program by itself. Sandboxie appends its [#] thing to the title. e.g
Regular Program title:
Sandboxie Program title:
[#] Notepad [#]
When I try to use wingetpos() on the first title, it works fine. But when I try to use wingetpos() on the sandboxie title, nothing is returned. However, if I set the sandboxie program to display the original program title, it can find the position just fine. But then I can only get the position of one of the windows because they share the same name and wingetpos() only gets the most recently active window. I thought it might have to do with escaping characters, so I tried escaping the brackets with "", and then I tried escaping the pound signs. Neither worked. It would always return an error saying subscript used with nonvariable array.
My code:
Global $windowinfo, $windowinfos
$windowinfo = WinGetPos("Notepad ")
$x = $windowinfo[0]
$y = $windowinfo[1]
$windowinfos = WinGetPos("[#] Notepad [#]")
$xs = $windowinfos[0]
$ys = $windowinfos[1]
I need the window positions to calculate the locations of text boxes and words within the program. 
This program is not used for
2)bypassing security measures
3)automation contrary to EULA
4)launching games
5)running or injecting code
6)decompilaton of anything
7)a non-exhaustive list of anything else
It is not
3)express anti societal ideas
4)copyrighted material
It is NOT the same question as posted before because now it is interacting with Notepad so I can enter data and save it using 2 different instances.
Other than that thanks for any help! :D

You obviously missed this bit:

Please do not try a third time. :naughty:
