first of all i searched in the forum but i didn't found any solution to my problem.
I am using windows 10.
I made a script that is supposed to change the title to the active window, resize it to the smallest size possible (should be around 800 x 600) and move to (0, 0).
I can change the title but i fail to do the other 2 tasks.
i use wingettitle [active] copied from the F1 help tool (and this works), i i put the title in a variable and than i use
winsettitle ($variable, "one") (this works too)
winmove ("one", 0, 0, 800, 600) (doesn't do anything)
i also tried
local $x = winget ( "one")
msgbox (0, "", $x) (i get a completely white box so i suppose winget can't have any data about my window ??)
any suggestion ?
I am attempting to drag and drop a file from one windows explorer window to another windows explorer window (henceforth referred to as window1 and window2). I am not using the web. I have used autowinexp.au3 (taken from LarsJ's automatewindowsexplorer.au3) to give focus (function GetFileFocus) to a file on window1. The problem is that sometimes the file with the focus is not displayed on window1 because it is farther down the list than what is displayed in window1. There are other ways to accomplish this (like copy and paste) but I want to emulate the GUI doing a drag and drop. I work as a digital forensicator and my task is to examine what artifacts are left behind on move/copy vs a drag and drop. Please note that when I open window1 and window2 they are on top of each other, so I drag window2 over about 1150 pixels and that part works great.
My code is listed below. Please understand that I have tried several different methods to accomplish this task. The last one was to estimate that the top of the window1 header is approximately 320 pixels and to multiply the index of the file by 20 pixels since that appears to be the approximate height of individual files using the AutoIT Windows Info tool. Ideally the program would search window1 for the file name text and provide a mouse position for it. Or the program would allow me to scroll to where the file name is located. Any and all ideas are welcome.

I'm trying to move and resize a program call CPUID HWMonitor (http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html) but WinMove() doesn't work. Can someone tell me how to get this to work for this program? I've successfully moved other programs using WinMove(), and I've used WinGetTitle ("[ACTIVE]") to confirm the title is correct. WinActivate("CPUID HWMonitor") does work.
If I run the following code nothing happens, doesn't move or resize, but AutoIt doesn't complain about the code either:
WinMove("CPUID HWMonitor", 0, 0, 475, 715) The class changes every time the program opens (and I've nevery had a lot of success with classes tbh, bit hit and miss for me).
Full script w/details in comments below, just in case you need to run it to see the problem. Basically WinGetPos is incorrectly returning the W & H sizes, while at the same time correctly returning the positions. To compound the problem, I ran the same script on 2 different PCs and it gets2 different results as follows:
Win7 Pro PC.. GUICreate used to set W:300, H:100. WinGetPos returns W:307, H:127 (PC screen res: 1366x768)
WinXP PC..... GUICreate used to set W:300, H:100. WinGetPos returns W:308, H:134 (PC screen res: 1152x864)
The bigger problem occurs when you consider I want to save the Window sizes and recreate the window at a later date. but due to this problem, each time I ran the program the Window would get larger and larger. --pete

Hey guys, I could need your help aggain ..
Is there a way to clip GUIs together (child GUIs - in one script). So if I use WinMove with speed set to one of those GUIs, the others follow at the same speed like they where one block?
I can't think of an option to do this in pure Autoit. Creating an adlib for each GUI won't help I'm afraid, because adlibs are paused on GUI-move?
And using this type of function didn't help either:
I can't imagine any other way of achieving multiple GUI moves at once using Autoit, because Autoit waits for the WinMove command to finish ..
Any thoughts? Maybe a build in windows function for clipping GUIs together?
Thanks for your help
