Matching class partially

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to get the Window class of a window that dynamically changes.  The class has the same base, but ends in a different 8 numbers.  Can autoit match class partially?  For whatever reason, maybe d/t the programs long window title name, I can't use title sufficiently to winactivate and to grab the class.

ControlGetText("[CLASS:Afx:00400000:b:00010011:12345678", "", "Button21")

Note the 12345678.  The class name is the same everytime except the last 8.

jack71,

Using the "REGEXPCLASS" mode should help. Look in the Help file under <Using AutoIt - Window Titles and Text (Advanced)>. :)

Try this and see if it works:

ControlGetText("[REGEXPCLASS:Afx:00400000:b:00010011:\d{8}", "", "Button21")

Thanks Melba, I'll give that a try later.  Any idea why the same program software installed over various machines would have different class names?  Are class ID's randomly generated at execution?  Just curious :).
