Out of ideas why this 18-line script is not working

Recommended Posts

Hi!

HotKeySet("!+d", "gogo")
Hotkeyset("!+c", "terminate")

While 1
   Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func gogo()
   If WinExists("uten navn - notisblokk") then 
      winclose("uten navn - notisblokk") 
      else
      run("notepad.exe") 
 EndIf
EndFunc

Func terminate()
   Exit 0
EndFunc

According to me this script is supposed to open/close notepad (like toggle). Instead it's only creating new windows without closing the old ones. I don't get it.

open notepad

and start this:

ConsoleWrite(WinGetTitle("[CLASS:Notepad]", "")&@CRLF)

take me as a feedback Your console contents

EDIT:
ps.

for me it works fine

of cours my title is another WinClose("Bez tytułu — Notatnik") 

because I use Polish Windows

So instead of opening a thread in the Dev Chat forum (where more of the right people are going to see it), and linking to this thread, you hijack the OP's post?

What about using process instead of window/title?

Window titles are case sensitive. I searched for "uten navn - notisblokk" and I got many listings of "uten navn - Notisblokk". If you do not get the case correct then it may not detect the window title and thus you will get multiple instances of notepad.exe.

Can not believe it was that simple, tried 20 different ways to formulate my logic... thanks mlipok for tip and thanks MHz for solving the problem!
