Window Counter


Recommended Posts


I am new to scripting and only have only  very limited programming knowledge. What I want to do is create a script that will loop through the open windows of a programm and when the window count is <4 the script should open another window.

The following lines work for the title:

opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
$j = 0
$winlist = WinList()
for $i = 0 to $winlist[0][0]
if stringinstr($winlist[$i][0], "abc") then
    $j = $j + 1

I pretty much need something like this but for "CLASS:" as identfier since the title isnt specific enough.

Hi and welcome!

I would take a look at the Window Titles and Text (Advanced) section of the help file.

; Checks if a window with these properties exists:
;  - RegExpTitle: the title matches .*abc.* (something abc something)
;  - Class: matches your class
;  - Instance: it's the fourth matching window

All my code provided is Public Domain... but it may not work. ;) Use it, change it, break it, whatever you want.
