Getting Word from Title

Recommended Posts

sobert

Can someone tell me if it is possible to get the i.e. the 4th word of a window's title?

I need to create something where the script will only run if the 4th word in the title is i.e. "Test"

Thanks in advance.

For the most part, yes you can. Given a window title of My Awesome Notepad Example.txt, you could do something like this:

$sTitle = WinGetTitle("[CLASS:Notepad]", "") ;get the full title
$aSplit = StringSplit($sTitle, " ") ;split the title by spaces
   ConsoleWrite($aSplit[4] & @CRLF) ;get the fourth element

If you're unable to get the class of the window, try using text inside the window (the second parameter in WinGetTitle).

Thanks for that! I apologize for being such a noob. What would be the proper syntax to get the 3rd and 4th element?

I tried  ConsoleWrite($aSplit[3] [4] & @CRLF)

$aSplit is a 1D array, so it would simply be $aSplit[1], $aSplit[2], etc.

If you want to write multiple indexes, you would write it like so: $aSplit[3] & $aSplit[4]
