Get windows created by the program

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

This is just a general query, but it is related to >one of my previous topics in some ways. If a program generates 'sub-windows', i.e if file download dialogs are created that belong to the script's process, is there any way to return an array or something with the information, or handles for these windows?

Hopefully that makes sense.

Thanks in advance

Look helpfile winlist function

Local $var = WinList()

For $i = 1 To $var[0][0]
    ; Only display visble windows that have a title
    If $var[$i][0] <> "" And IsVisible($var[$i][1]) Then
        MsgBox(0, "Details", "Title=" & $var[$i][0] & @LF & "Handle=" & $var[$i][1])
    EndIf
Next

Func IsVisible($handle)
    If BitAND(WinGetState($handle), 2) Then
        Return 1
    Else
        Return 0
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>IsVisible

#include <Array.au3>

#include <WinAPI.au3>
$hWin = WinGetHandle("your window") ; This is the parent window
$iPID = WinGetProcess($hWin)
$iCurrentPid = ""
$aWin = WinList()
For $i = UBound($aWin)-1 To 0 Step -1
    _WinAPI_GetWindowThreadProcessId($aWin[$i][1], $iCurrentPid)
    If $iCurrentPid <> $iPID Then
        _ArrayDelete($aWin,$i)
    EndIf
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aWin)

or:

#include <constants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
$hWin = WinGetHandle("your window") ; This is the parent window
$iPID = WinGetProcess($hWin)

$hWin = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWin, $GW_HWNDFIRST)
$end= _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWin, $GW_HWNDLAST)

$iCurrentPid = ""
While True
    $hWin = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWin, $GW_HWNDNEXT)
    _WinAPI_GetWindowThreadProcessId($hWin, $iCurrentPid)
    If $iCurrentPid = $iPID Then
        ConsoleWrite($hWin & " state=[" & WinGetState($hWin) & "] title=[" & WinGetTitle($hWin) & "]" & @CRLF)
    EndIf
    If $hWin = $end Then ExitLoop
WEnd
; many of the handles returned will not be visible, but you can add checks on the wingetstate inside the if statement

Thank you very much everyone. You all showed me exactly what I was looking for!

I'm going to mark jdelaney's answer as the one that solved the topic, but only because it is the more complete of the three. :)

      with the below code, I am keeping waiting for a particular file and waiting in the background.
      While $i <> 10 Sleep(60000) If FileExists(@ScriptDir&"\Binaries.ini") then --some processing-- $i = 10 endif WEnd I thought keeping the Sleep will freeze the process from resources but the CPU being uilized.But it is taking 47%.
      How to free this CPU usage also.?

      Hello,
      I'm working on a script that writes detailed application event logs, and I'd like to know if there is a way with Autoit to write multiple lines of XML EventData (see example below):
      <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> <System> <Provider Name="Application" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1001</EventID> <Level>4</Level> <Task>0</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2015-07-12T21:26:07.000000000Z" /> <EventRecordID>86554</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>YOUR_COMPUTER</Computer> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>DeskTop Agent: Mike</Data> <Data>Observer Username: Miguel</Data> etc... </EventData> </Event> So far, using EventCreate, everything I send end's up in a single <data> entry (see below):
      <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> <System> <Provider Name="Application" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1001</EventID> <Level>4</Level> <Task>0</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2015-07-12T21:26:07.000000000Z" /> <EventRecordID>86554</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>YOUR_COMPUTER</Computer> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>DeskTop Agent: Mike Observer Username: Miguel</Data> </EventData> </Event> Here is the code I'm using thus far (which does not work the way I'd like):
      $LogData = @CRLF & "DeskTop Agent: " & @UserName & @CRLF & "Observer Username: " & $DTObserver & @CRLF & "File name/s with extension: " & $FilenameWextension & @CRLF & "Action Performed: " & $ActionPerformed & @CRLF & "Explanation: " & $Explanation & @CRLF & "Machine Name: " & @ComputerName & @CRLF & "IP Address: " & @IPAddress1 & @CRLF & "App1Installed: " & $App1 & @CRLF & "App2Installed: " & $App2 Run("eventcreate /T Information /ID 100 /L Application /SO DTALog /D " & Chr(34) & "DTALog Details: " & $LogData & Chr(34), "", @SW_HIDE, 2) I found a Stackoverflow post that talks about doing it in C# (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7694276/how-to-add-multiple-lines-of-eventdata-to-an-eventlog-in-windows)
      but I'd like to determine if it can be accomplished with AutoIt!.
      Thanks for your time,

      Folks,
      I have an issue I've been trying to solve for a while, I'm trying to add static routes in DHCP via a 121 route rule in Windows 2012 R2 is a brutal manual process and wanted to automate this via AutoIT.
       
      When I use the "ControlGetText" everything displays properly in the MSG box but when I try and use "ControlSetText" or "ControlSend" the values won't display in the input box but the action comes back as successful?
      Anyone able to help me with this? I'm thinking this might be an active window issue but i'm not sure.
      Here is a part of my code.
       
      $hWnd = WinWait("[TITLE:Add a Static Route]","", 10)
      WinActivate($hWnd)
      $Status = ControlSend($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:4]", "192"); Does not add 192 to the text box.
      Local $sTextEdit1 = ControlGetText($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]")
      ConsoleWrite ( "ControlSend Status: " &  $Status & @CRLF); Returns a Value of 1
      ConsoleWrite ( "ControlGetText Value Edit1: " &  $sTextEdit1 & @CRLF);

      Hello!
      I created some scripts for a simple farming bot a few years ago and they rely on ControlSend.
      A year ago I quit that game and then installed Windows 10 (was using windows 7).
      Recently I installed that game and tried running them again and they seem to work (I have some messages displayed on the screen with the state of the bot ), except for the ControlSend part (which obviously is crucial).
      I started debugging the scripts so I created a basic script that makes use of Send. I tested this with Notepad in focus and works just fine and then with my game window in focus and it didn't work (it's supposed to write that text in an input box from the game).
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Sleep(3000); Send("some text"); MsgBox($MB_OK, "Notification", "Control was sent!");  
      Is there a way for the creators of the game to create some kind of security system against this? Or something happens because I updated to Windows 10?
      Is there something I'm missing?
      Thank you!
