GetParentHandle()

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Simple function to recieve the handle of the parent window of a child window (That was a bit confusing) :P

Func GetParentHandle($ChildHwnd)
    Local $ParentLong = DllCall("user32.dll","long","GetWindowLong","hwnd",$ChildHwnd,"int",-8)
    If $ParentLong[0] = 0 Then SetError(1)
    Local $ParentHwnd = String($ParentLong[0])
    Return HWnd($ParentHwnd)
EndFunc

And an example:

Dim $ChildhWnd = WinGetHandle("Child Window Text")
Dim $ParenthWnd = GetParentHandle($ChildhWnd)
If @error <> 0 Then Exit
WinSetState($ParenthWnd,"",@SW_MINIMIZE)

Sorry if this has been done before ;)

    EndIf
    Return HWnd($ParentLong[0])
EndFunc

works a bit better IMO.

Return HWnd($ParentLong[0])

Oddly, I got an error that HWnd was not found, until I re-re-installed Scite and the re-installed the Scite update to beta 75.

my attempt

Func _WinGetParent( $WGP_hwnd )
   $ret = DLLCall( "User32.dll", "hwnd", "GetParent", "hwnd", $WGP_hwnd)
   Return $ret[0]
EndFunc
Your's might be able to do what mine does in less code, but my code looks better :P

Lol im just a sore loser... ;)
