String operator [ALL]

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I'm looking for an operator like [*] in most languages, to work with windows title.

I give an example to understand the situation: i want use a function WinMove() on a window which part of the title have a fixed text, and the rest can change. For example a title which tell how much new mails you have in the inbox can be:

  • 3 New mails!
  • 4 New mails!
  • 33432 New mails!
  • and so on

I want use the function WinMove() on this window.

Is there something like:

WinMove("* New mails!","",0,0)

Thanks for your time :)

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the DEV forum very clearly states:


Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use AutoIt General Help and Support 

Take a look at WinTitleMatchMode in the help file.

Edit: Or wait until someone copies and pastes out of the help file for you :)

You can use.

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=advanced, -1 to -4=Nocase
