Taskbar data retrieval, (order)problem ?

2 posts in this topic

Output from Au3Info on the application-buttons in my taskbar.

>>>> ToolsBar <<<<
1: 2 Google Chrome
2: 3 AutoIt Forums - Google Chrome
3: 8 AutoIt3Help viewer
4: 9 AutoIt Help
5: 4 SciTE - a Scintilla based Text Editor
6: 5 ***an8_taskbar_titlelookup.au3 - SciT
7: 7 Anim8or
8: 11 Object: object01
9: 1 Winamp
10: 10 1. Frostbyte - The Spirit Stirs (Original mix) (Chillout Dreams - DIGITALLY IMP

 
(Order: Task name followed by the task-text/tip for that task.)
(Seeing "N:" as first number column here.)
 
Using the following code-parts I can retrieve the task-name and the task-text data. (Win-Xp)

$hTaskbar = ControlGetHandle('[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32;INSTANCE:3]') ;; Win-XP!
$iTaskCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hTaskbar)
$sTask = _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hTaskbar, $i)
$sText = _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hTaskbar, $i+1)

 But, the retrieved data in this case is ordered according to the second number column in the Au3Info data. (rendering it kinda unusable as a task and it text are not guaranteed to be grouped together.)
 
I figure there must be some additional/other way/data that Au3Info is using to link the right task with its related text. But how ... ??? (Its probably something simple, but I'm not seeing it.)

Mmm, Think I found a/the solution.

(After just trying out some of the GUICtrlToolbar functions, and seeing what I got returned.)

 

_GUICtrlToolbar_IndexToCommand()

...

Yep, that did it.

 

...
    Local $hTaskbar = ControlGetHandle('[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32;INSTANCE:3]') ;; Win-XP!
    Local $iTaskCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hTaskbar)
    Local $iC, $sTask, $sText_out = ''
    For $i = 0 to $iTaskCount-2 step 2
        $iC = _GUICtrlToolbar_IndexToCommand($hTaskbar, $i)
        $sTask = _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hTaskbar, $iC)
        If $sTask == $sName_in Then ;; note: case sensitive string compare.
            $iC = _GUICtrlToolbar_IndexToCommand($hTaskbar, $i+1)
            $sText_out = _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hTaskbar, $iC)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
...
