Need help with WinWait for a specific sized window[solved]

Recommended Posts

Hi. i googled and searched a lot before posting this. thanks for any help.

I need to locate a window that has no title or discernible text, BUT is always the same size. The autoit documentation says:

"X \ Y \ W \ H - The position and size of a window

One or more properties are used in the title parameter of a window command in the format:

[PROPERTY1 : Value1; PROPERTY2:Value2]"

However, i can't figure out exactly how to do that. i tried:

Local $winAW = WinWait("[W:506;H:288]", "", 30);

That didn't work. I couldn't find an example of the specific format I need to use. Can someone provide a proven working example? Maybe that example can be added to the documentation? :) Thanks!

Your WinWait statement looks correct to me. Did you check with the AutoIt Window Info Tool that the window has the size you specify?

Please post a screenshot of the AutoIt Window Info Tool for your window.

Thanks sorry I didn't reply sooner. Here's the screen capture:

 

I can't find it via Class because all of the Spruce POS Windows have the same class of RAIL_WINDOW. And the title is blank :(. So I figured Size would do it. There's no Visible Text when I click on that tab. I tried typing in some text, and it appeared to work at first, but then autoit starting find my AUTOIT script editor Window because it found the text that I was looking for. very meta...

Anyhow, it seems to work when I have JUST that code standalone:

Local $winAW = WinWait("[W:506;H:288]", "", 30);
winActivate($winAW);
msgBox('','Found it','Found window!');

It just seems to fail with my larger script:

Ok.... I figured it out.. Sorry guys. The height of the error window is 269 for the SKU in my script. The random sku I picked to get the window size was 288 :P. I didn't think the height of that error window changed. So far width is consistent though so I'll just use that.

Thanks for making me think and double-check everything, appreciate it!

      Hello,

      I'm having a problem whit winwait on firefoxscreens whit the same title and text.
      On mine quest on this forum and internet I've found some work around and solutions.
      unfortunaly This wasn't working for me.

      I've tried searching tru winlist or finding some unique text but wasn't finding any solution.
      Does anyone know how to get the wright handle?
      I just want to move the browser to the right place in the end whit WinMove.

      thnx in advanced.

       
      #include <Array.au3> Global $A_URL[4][2] = _ [["url1" , "same_title"] , _ ["url2", "same_title"] , _ ["url3" , "other_title" ] , _ ["url4" , "other_title" ]] ;~ _ArrayDisplay($A_URL) ;-----kill all firefox.exe ;~ Run("taskkill /IM firefox.exe /F", "", @SW_HIDE) ;Sleep(5000) For $i = 0 To 1 ConsoleWrite("running 1 : " & $i & @CRLF) Local $ID = ShellExecute("firefox.exe", "-new-window " & $A_URL[$i][0] ,"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" ) ConsoleWrite("$ID = " & $ID & @CRLF) Next sleep(200) ;~ Local $screen1HWND = WinWait($A_URL[0][1],"") ;~ If Not WinActive($screen1HWND) Then WinActivate($screen1HWND) ;~ ConsoleWrite("$screen1HWND = " & $screen1HWND & @CRLF) ;~ Local $screen2HWND = WinWait($A_URL[1][1],"") ;~ If Not WinActive($screen2HWND) Then WinActivate($screen2HWND) ;~ ConsoleWrite("$screen2HWND = " & $screen2HWND & @CRLF) $sWinTitle = $A_URL[0][1] $avWinList = WinList($sWinTitle) For $n = 1 to $avWinList[0][0] ConsoleWrite("Window " & $n & ": Text: " & WinGetText($avWinList[$n][1]) & @LF) Next For $i = 0 To 1 ;~ WinWait("title1", "", 10) ;~ WinActive("title1", "") ;~ WinMove ("title1", "", $i , $i ) Next

      OK, after days looking at my code, the help file and forums I come (again) for help on message windows.
      I'm having trouble trying to close window messages that appear. This is the code I'm using
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $obs_handler = 0 Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",2) While 1 $obs_handler = WinWait("C:\Users\", "", 1) If IsHWnd($obs_handler) then MsgBox($MB_OK, "Message", "handler: "&$obs_handler, 1) ;Sleep(100) $obs_handler = HWND($obs_handler) WinKill($obs_handler, "") ;<<<<< PROBLEM!!!!! Else MsgBox($MB_OK, "Message", "No handler", 1) EndIf Send("{ESC}") Sleep(2000) $obs_handler = 0 WEnd The problem is on the Winkill command, it won't just close the window! 
      Winwait is capturing the handler, it checks as handler. Ii'm using the HWND() command just to be sure it is the correct variable type.  I've also checked the message box info with the autoit window info tool and the handle value matches the one captured by the code. 
      I've tried winkill, winclose, using wingethandle, moving the winkill command to Before the message box so it is not converted to a string, and now using the hwnd function to force the variable type of the handler. The use of the sleep command does not make any diference.
      As a side quest, I'd like to use classes to capture the windows instead of titles, just to keep things cleaner, but using the [CLASS:...] value for winwait is not working. I have the class name and number, am I missing something? 
       
      Thanks!

      if ControlClick("[CLASS:MsiDialogCloseClass]"," ","[CLASS:SysTreeView32; INSTANCE:1]") Then $htreeview=ControlGetHandle($hwnd,"","[CLASS:SysTreeView32; INSTANCE:1]") ControlTreeView($hwnd," ",$htreeview,"Select","#4") The above code worked well to enable the martupgrade feature on windows 7.
      As part of our Installation Testing Automation before delivering the installer to end user.To confirm whether all the screens are working good.

      But it is not working on windows 10.
       
      $h= ControlTreeView($hwnd," ",$htreeview,"Select","#4") The $h is getting value 1,which means error.

      I have automated an install process by using the below code.
       
      Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0) WinWait($title,$text,$timeout) If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text) WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout) EndFunc $win1 = "Text 1" $win2 = "Text 2" _WinWaitActivate($win1,"WARNING: This progra") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{SPACE}") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"I DISAGREE and &do n") Send("{UP}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Customer Information") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{TAB}{TAB}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Click Next to instal") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"This feature require") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{TAB}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Ready to Install the") Send("{ALTDOWN}i{ALTUP}");Send("i") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"The InstallShield Wi") Send("{ALTDOWN}f{ALTUP}");Send("f") _WinWaitActivate($win2,"You must restart you") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("n") Now if any new screen comes in the middle of installation, like some VC++ installation error or like that.
      The AutoIT is waiting in the background.
      Is there any way to skip the new screens with just "enter" and continue the installation??

      I have a small exe I created in AutoIt that seems to be causing some problems in OutLook when people go to save a PDF or Reply to emails.

      Here is my code.
       
      TraySetState(2) WinWait("[CLASS:#32770]", "Make sure that your sign-in address, user name, and password are correct and try again.", 0) WinClose( "Lync")  
      So this works just fine, it closes these message prompts we are trying to suppress.  But if the autoit executable is running when someone is using Outlook and they go to Save as PDF.  When they click "Save As" and go to type in the name of the file to save, they can't type in the box.  So if they close the autoit executable that's running only the code above, then they can use type in the name of the file.  So we know the EXE is preventing users from saving documents.

      Now, I'm sure it could be the way I've written this code, but I'm new to AutoIt and I'm not sure what could be causing this.  This little script seems like it' targeting the correct CLASS # and Window TItle and exact message.  So I don't understand why it's interfering with other applications.

      Any ideas?
