Firefox with random window size

8 posts in this topic

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 :)

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)

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

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

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 :)

here is the code for specific size as in:  anything between 1000 and 1330 width x 650 and 720 height
 

$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)
EndFunc

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
