5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello guys, the "Advanced Window Descriptions" named "Active" can be used in many function, WinGetText, WinGetTitle and other

If i put one of it in a While-WEnd loop, how i can have ex. a MsgBox only when ACTIVE window change and not everytime?

Thanks

Terenz,

Just compare the current return from WinGetHandle with the previous return - if they are different then show your MsgBox. :)

Hi Melba, so i need to do something like:

While 1

$OldHandle = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]")

If $OldHandle <> WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]") Then etc.

WEnd

Is correct? Sorry but i can't make the script in the codebox

Terenz,

Close: ;)

#include <Constants.au3>

; Get original handle
$hOldHandle = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]")

While 1
    ; Get current handle
    $hCurrHandle = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]")
    ; If changed
    If $hOldHandle <> $hCurrHandle Then
        ; Announce it
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Hi", "New active")
        ; Reactivate the window after the MsgBox closes
        WinActivate($hCurrHandle)
        ; And wait for the next change
        $hOldHandle = $hCurrHandle
    EndIf
    ; Save the CPU
    Sleep(10)
 WEnd
