Ideas On How To Activate A Window Based On Hwnd?

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey, used the search function on the forums and looked everywhere for some information pertaining to this and couldnt come up with anything.

Basically what I want to be able to do is use WinActivate to activate a window based on a handle(hwnd) that i have obtained using WinGetHandle. The reason I am doing this is that I have two instances of the same application running and want to be able to discriminate between the two so that I can be sure of which one I am dealing with. Thanks in advance and if this is in any way unclear please feel free to ask me any questions.

Here is a snippet of some general stuff I am trying just to get it to work.

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
$handle = WinGetHandle("classname=Notepad")
MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", $handle)
WinActivate("handle=$handle", "")

WinActivate("handle=" & $handle)

Or you ccould add the handle= when you get the handle:

$handle = "handle=" & WinGetHandle("classname=Notepad")
