I have read the help files, and tried the example, but nothing is happening, I see some code 0,0,0,0 and changed settings, but the window does nothing.

How can I change the parameters for window size and position, where in the code and how?

 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Assign a Local variable the handle of the NotePad window
    Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Notepad]")

    ; If the window does not exists, display a message and return False.
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Notepad window not found.")
        Return False
    EndIf

    ; Assign a Local variable the style of the Notepad window.
    Local $iStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong($hWnd, $GWL_STYLE)

    ; Remove from the window style the MAXIMIZEBOX, MINIMIZEBOX and SIZEBOX styles.
    $iStyle = BitXOR($iStyle, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX)

    ; Set the style of the window.
    _WinAPI_SetWindowLong($hWnd, $GWL_STYLE, $iStyle)

    ; Apply the style
    _WinAPI_SetWindowPos($hWnd, $HWND_TOP, 0, 0, 0, 0, BitOR($SWP_FRAMECHANGED, $SWP_NOMOVE, $SWP_NOSIZE))
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Thanks

Hi!

This code works perfectly for me, but all it does is removing Notepad window's maximize and minimize buttons, as well as not allowing the window to be resized.

If you want to change a window position and size, you could try using WinMove() function. If you want to get the current window position and size, then use WinGetPos().

Edited by Jefrey
sorry, it's WinMove(), not WinPos()

What I am trying to do is this:

 

1. Open a notepad window (it will open on the size it was manually set last time the program ran)

2. Resize the window to 100px. wide  by 100px. high

3. Move the window 100px. on Y axis and move it to 100px. on X axis

Basically, I want to automate grabbing the window by hand and setting it's size with the mouse.

The code in first post seems to be fine. But don't use $SWP_NOMOVE or $SWP_NOSIZE flags in _WinAPI_SetWindowPos if you want to move or resize the window.

If you want to rely on AutoIt native functions (easier to understand), then here's your code:

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]")
WinMove("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 100, 100, 100, 100, 100)

The first line runs Notepad.

The second line waits until Notepad window shows up.

The third line moves Notepad window to 100px in x axis and 100px in y axis, as well as resize it to 100px of width and 100px of height, on a speed of 100, as you said you want to simulate the mouse action (slowest - the minimum is 1 - fastest - and if you just ignore this argument it will move instantly). 

WinMove ( "title", "text", x, y [, width [, height [, speed]]] )

Here's the documentation for that function: https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/WinMove.htm

      Hi,
      I'm currently saving process time stamps of my employer's other employees and saving it in a text document as data storage. However, my employer wants it to be processed in a day to day basis to generate their average process time per day. How can I compare today from yesterday and so on and so forth with the succeeding days? Whats the best approach to this?
      Thank you.

      Hello,
      I'm working on a script that writes detailed application event logs, and I'd like to know if there is a way with Autoit to write multiple lines of XML EventData (see example below):
      <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> <System> <Provider Name="Application" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1001</EventID> <Level>4</Level> <Task>0</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2015-07-12T21:26:07.000000000Z" /> <EventRecordID>86554</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>YOUR_COMPUTER</Computer> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>DeskTop Agent: Mike</Data> <Data>Observer Username: Miguel</Data> etc... </EventData> </Event> So far, using EventCreate, everything I send end's up in a single <data> entry (see below):
      <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> <System> <Provider Name="Application" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1001</EventID> <Level>4</Level> <Task>0</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2015-07-12T21:26:07.000000000Z" /> <EventRecordID>86554</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>YOUR_COMPUTER</Computer> <Security /> </System> <EventData> <Data>DeskTop Agent: Mike Observer Username: Miguel</Data> </EventData> </Event> Here is the code I'm using thus far (which does not work the way I'd like):
      $LogData = @CRLF & "DeskTop Agent: " & @UserName & @CRLF & "Observer Username: " & $DTObserver & @CRLF & "File name/s with extension: " & $FilenameWextension & @CRLF & "Action Performed: " & $ActionPerformed & @CRLF & "Explanation: " & $Explanation & @CRLF & "Machine Name: " & @ComputerName & @CRLF & "IP Address: " & @IPAddress1 & @CRLF & "App1Installed: " & $App1 & @CRLF & "App2Installed: " & $App2 Run("eventcreate /T Information /ID 100 /L Application /SO DTALog /D " & Chr(34) & "DTALog Details: " & $LogData & Chr(34), "", @SW_HIDE, 2) I found a Stackoverflow post that talks about doing it in C# (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7694276/how-to-add-multiple-lines-of-eventdata-to-an-eventlog-in-windows)
      but I'd like to determine if it can be accomplished with AutoIt!.
      Thanks for your time,
      -Mike

      Folks,
      I have an issue I've been trying to solve for a while, I'm trying to add static routes in DHCP via a 121 route rule in Windows 2012 R2 is a brutal manual process and wanted to automate this via AutoIT.
       
      When I use the "ControlGetText" everything displays properly in the MSG box but when I try and use "ControlSetText" or "ControlSend" the values won't display in the input box but the action comes back as successful?
      Anyone able to help me with this? I'm thinking this might be an active window issue but i'm not sure.
      Here is a part of my code.
       
      $hWnd = WinWait("[TITLE:Add a Static Route]","", 10)
      WinActivate($hWnd)
      $Status = ControlSend($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:4]", "192"); Does not add 192 to the text box.
      Local $sTextEdit1 = ControlGetText($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]")
      ConsoleWrite ( "ControlSend Status: " &  $Status & @CRLF); Returns a Value of 1
      ConsoleWrite ( "ControlGetText Value Edit1: " &  $sTextEdit1 & @CRLF);
       
      Please see attachment for more info.
