Get handle of unnamed popup window

Recommended Posts


Now I want to get the Window Handle of a popup window. My problems are : 

1. It doesn't have a title and its class is same for the opened window other than popup window. So, when using the class name I got the handle of previous opened window.  

2. The popup window is opened after a short time by clicking a button. And the time is not always same for all the button click. So I can't access the active window after some sleep time. 

I have to read the text contained in the Popup window. Its control informations are : 

Class   :  WindowsForms10.STATIC.app.0.37504c8_r92_ad2

Instance  : 1

ClassnameNN  : WindowsForms10.STATIC.app.0.37504c8_r92_ad21

Name  : lblMessage

Advanced Mode  : [NAME:lblMessage]

ID  : 788142

Text  : successfully completed

Thanks in advance.

    $hPopup = (WinWait("[Class:WindowsForms10.STATIC.app.0.37504c8_r92_ad21]", "successfully completed", 1) ? (WinActivate("[LAST]") ? WinWaitActive("[LAST]") : 0) : SetError(1, 0, 0))
    If Not @error Then ExitLoop

Thank you for your effort.

Its not working for me. The text successfully completed is contained in a label field and the label is contained in the popup window. When using the above code it returns 0. The popup window doesn't have a Class or any control information. Above given details are of the Label field. I have to read the content "successfully completed". What to do?:(

Exit, you can't use class...that changes each time...you'd have to use RegExpClass, or the NAME.

I also like using


Option 6...you pass in the parent handle, and it will send back the handle of the enabled popup...may or may not work with that specific class of window, but a good one to check.

IEbyXPATH-Grab IE DOM objects by XPATH IEscriptRecord-Makings of an IE script recorder ExcelFromXML-Create Excel docs without excel installed GetAllWindowControls-Output all control data on a given window.
