Winmove not working on windows 10

Recommended Posts

Hello,

first of all i searched in the forum but i didn't found any solution to my problem.

I am using windows 10.

I made a script that is supposed to change the title to the active window, resize it to the smallest size possible (should be around 800 x 600) and move to (0, 0).

I can change the title but i fail to do the other 2 tasks.

i use wingettitle [active] copied from the F1 help tool (and this works), i i put the title in a variable and than i use

winsettitle ($variable, "one") (this works too)

winmove ("one", 0, 0, 800, 600) (doesn't do anything)

i also tried

local $x = winget ( "one")

msgbox (0, "", $x) (i get a completely white box so i suppose winget can't have any data about my window ??)

any suggestion ?

I would suggest something like this --

$hWnd = WinGetHandle("[Active]")
WinSetTitle($hWnd, "new title")
WinMove($hwnd, "", 0, 0, 800, 600)

 

I tried this and it works, but not completly, it doesn't get resized, but it get moved to the top left corner. I have to double click on the window title to see it resized and i have a little spaze like 3-4 mm from the monitor left border to my window left border.

Have you tried using different values for the width and height parameters?

Is there a reason you aren't using WinSetState to maximize the window?

Please ignore the last post i updated the page and posted it twice.

i tried using another size yes, but no difference, it works but it doesn't resize immediatly the window.

 

im not so expert in the use of autoit, so no there is no specific reason why i am not using winsetstate.

i don't know what winsetstate does but i will check it when i will back home.

      Hello All, 
      If you're interested in the story, read below. Otherwise, just jump to the end of the post. 
      Story: 
      Sometimes my computer goes crazy with Windows update. I tried to turn it off with "services.msc", but couldn't close the it. So, I did some research online that it's triggered by Update Orchestration and Task Scheduler and Windows Update. I also checked that all three processes are triggered by svchost.exe.

      So, I tried to make a script to close this process. I found some useful functions ProcessList and _ProcessGetName using the help documents and coded something as below: 
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Process.au3> Local $aProcessList = ProcessList() For $i = 1 To $aProcessList[0][0] $iPid = $aProcessList[$i][1] $sName = _ProcessGetName($iPid) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "The process", "PID: " & $iPid & @CRLF & "NAME: " & $sName) If $sName = "svchost.exe" Then ;ProcessClose($iPid) ;I don't know if this is the process I want to close EndIf Next But the problem is; there are so many svchost.exe exists in the process list. I can't close all of them, some of them are essential to run Windows (well, accidentally I terminated some of them and ended up with a blue screen  
      ---------------
      Well, how can I know the process name like "Service Host: Update Orchestration" (not the scvhost)?
      It's not only with the .exe file, just to the name shown in Windows.

      I have this AutoIt script that works on Windows 7. However, when I test it on Windows 10, the objEvent will not execute the function it's supposed to call. So I have a webpage the script will check if it is active, then it will search if a popup button exist (elementId), if so, assign it to the event handler so that when that button is clicked, then handler function will move the focus back to the main GUI again.
      If WinActive("Website Title - Internet Explorer") Then    $ie = _IEAttach("Website Title")    $objElement= _IEGetObjById ($ie, "elementId")    local $oEvent = ObjEvent($objElement, "_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_") EndIf Func _MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick($oEvtObj)     msgbox(0,"Alert Window", "Button Clicked!") setMainWindow() ; sets focus back to main GUI EndFunc  
      I've verified, on Windows 10, that it does see the object element. But it will not trigger the event. Could it be related to some timing issues due to Windows 10 Internet Explorer over Windows 7 Internet Explorer? 
      Windows 7 IE version 11.0.9600.19507
      Windows 10 IE version 11.418.18362.0
      AutoIt v 3.3

      My company is moving from WIN7 to WIN10, I have had a script that runs in the middle of the night, when the computer is locked, to open an Excel spreadsheet, read a few cells, and generate an email.  This has worked fine under WIN7, when I try to run under WIN10 it freezes when it gets to a line to handle an array.  When I run without the computer locked the script runs as expected.  After doing a lot of investigating, it looks like the following line reads a "0" from the Excel file instead of a text string, only when the computer is locked.
      Any ideas?
      $Driver1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, "Template", "H12")
      This is how I am opening the Excel file:
      Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False)
      Sleep(10000)
      $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFilePath, True, False)
