Recommended Posts

hello  everyone,

I'm new with AutoIT and just looking for a way to open Firefox with random window size

i have tried too many different samples from the web, some how it works but i can't make it works with Firefox 

MozRpel and ff.au3 installed 

right now i can open Firefox with this code, but i still can't control the window of Firefox

; open firefox 

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

; open firefox with random size

Can you show us the code you tried that didn't work? Also, have you considered using WinMove to set the window's size once FF has loaded?

here some of the scripts i tired from the web

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Run Notepad
    Run("notepad.exe")

    ; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
    Local $hWnd = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10)

    ; Retrieve the position as well as the height and width of the Notepad window. We will use this when we have to move the window back to the original position.
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos($hWnd)

    ; Move the Notepad to the x, y position of 0, 0 and set the height and width at 200, 200.
    WinMove($hWnd, "", 0, 0, 200, 200)

    ; Wait for 2 seconds to display the new position of the Notepad window.
    Sleep(2000)

    ; Move the Notepad window back to the original position by using the array returned by WinGetPos.
    WinMove($hWnd, "", $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $aPos[2], $aPos[3])

    ; Wait for 2 seconds to display the original position of the Notepad window.
    Sleep(2000)

    ; Close the Notepad window using the handle returned by WinWait.
    WinClose($hWnd)
EndFunc   ;==>Example
; open firefox

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

WinMove(_FFStart(), "", 0, 0, 400, 400)
; For window size 1024 * 768
$customWidth = 1024
$customY = 768
 
If $CmdLine[0] = 1 Then
    WinMove($CmdLine[1], "", 0, 0, $customWidth, $customY)
    _Middle($CmdLine[1], "")
EndIf
 
Func _Middle($win, $txt)
    $size = WinGetClientSize($win, $txt)
    Local $y = (@DesktopHeight / 2) - ($size[1] / 2)
    Local $x = (@DesktopWidth / 2) - ($size[0] / 2)
    Return WinMove($win, $txt, $x, $y)
EndFunc

and here i found some topics about resizing,

i'm not really good in coding the reason i still can't run it with firefox

 

thanks :)

Im curious about what you mean with random size, do you really mean random? as in: anything between 0 and total width, and 0 and total height?

This works for me, as i think you described it

$Proc = Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe")
_Random()
Func _Random()
    WinWait('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $Handle = WinGetHandle('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $x = Random(0, @DesktopWidth)
    Local $y = Random(0, @DesktopHeight)
    ConsoleWrite('$x - '& $x &' $y - '&$y&@CRLF)
    Sleep(3000)
    WinMove($Handle, '', $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $x, $y)
EndFunc

You need to get the handle of the FF window. To do that, you can use _FFWindowGetHandle() --

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

$ffhwnd = _FFWindowGetHandle()

WinMove($ffhwnd, "", 0, 0, 400, 400)

excellent  it works! it was just missing this part for testing the window control

$ffhwnd = _FFWindowGetHandle()

now i will try  Careca's code for the Random part :) 

thanks

EndFunc

 

excellent it works like a charm :thumbsup:

exactly what i was looking for, it took me a week trying to figure it out 

now i will just try to keep the resolution of the window at specific size  as in:  anything between 550 and 1280 width x 400 and 720 height
hope it will works

 thank you :)

$Proc = Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe")
_Random()
Func _Random()
    WinWait('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $Handle = WinGetHandle('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $x = Random(1000, 1360, @DesktopWidth)
    Local $y = Random(650, 720, @DesktopHeight)
    ConsoleWrite('$x - '& $x &' $y - '&$y&@CRLF)
    Sleep(3000)
    WinMove($Handle, '', $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $x, $y)

      Hey there!
       
      Is there a way to detect movement only for 1 specific window?

      HWnd is not really working, it still detects movement in all the windows within the region

      This is my script:
       
      ;Checksum actual HotKeySet("{f2}", 'exit_') MsgBox(0, '', '0') Beep(500, 2000) $Hwnd = WinActive('') while 1 $Checksum = PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) If PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) <> $Checksum Then For $i = 1 To 100 Beep(1000, 50) Next MsgBox(0, '', 'New message!', 1) EndIf WEnd Func exit_() Beep(500, 1000) Exit 0 EndFunc I just want to check whenever a message comes because the app i use doesn't give notifications properly.

      Any help is really appreciated!

      Can you please see whats wrong im doing in the below code? i can read few registry entry but not all for eg, i am able to get value of "Shell" Key from the registry path  but not AutoAdminLogon which has the value of "1", is there any change i have to do to read numeric values?
       Global  $shello = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon","Shell" )
       ConsoleWrite("This is Hello"& $shello)
      above command returns proper value , but same command with AutoAdminLogon returns null as shown in below ? infact registry has the value of 1.
       Global  $shello = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon","AutoAdminLogon" )
       ConsoleWrite("This is Hello"& $shello)

      Hello,
      I've been searching on how to select the first row in my database which includes a time column based on the latest start_time date for today's date.
      This is my current code:
      Local $iCurrentDate = _Now() Local $sqlHandle = _dbOpen($sDbPath) Local $aResult, $iRows, $iCols _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqlHandle, "SELECT start_time FROM " & $srawDb & " ORDER BY datetime(start_time) DESC LIMIT 1", $aResult, $iRows, $iCols) _ArrayDisplay($aResult) _dbClose($sDbpath) What it does is it gets the first row entry in the database however it does not select the latest start_time entry in the database, it always select the first row. I've tried changing DESC to ASC to see if that will do it but the issue still remains. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.
       
      *EDIT
      The date format in the database is by MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.
