Get handle for the "Active" window

Go to solution Solved by cyberalau3,

Recommended Posts

I tried this,

     local $V = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]","$WinBackupDates")
    msgbox(0,@ScriptLineNumber,"$V is: ",$V)
 tried with the "text" part as    local $V = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]","")

In both cases $V is always empty

After reading the help on "WinGetHandle" it seems what it returns is not a normal number or string but rather it's own special type. So, for example,trying to display it in msgbox always shows nothing. I can't use it so will look for a different way to do what I was atempting. Just wanted to close this out.

I guess it would help to see all of your code. When I create a GUI, then create a sub, and switch between the two with GUISwitch (as it appears you are trying to do), I am able to close the sub by its handle just fine. If that is not what you're attempting, you need to provide a more complete reproducer.
