Differentiating windows

3 posts in this topic

Hi, this might have been asked before, but I am running a program that takes an undefined amount of time. After this period of time, a prompt pops up that I need to communicate with. The issue is that the prompt has the exact same title and class as the previous window. I have tried using the finder tool to see if there are any words that it recognizes on the prompt, but the finder is empty when I place it over the prompt.

Fay,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

I would call WinList - using the title of these multiple GUIs as a parameter - in a loop. Then when the new GUI pops up you get an additional element in the returned array and you can then use the associated handle to identify it. ;)

Got it, using the handle to differeniate the windows was exactly what I needed.
