Can anyone help with a script to do the following..

Read in title and text of each open or active window into a variable so I can output each window details to a text file ..

The FM says:



Retrieves a list of windows.

WinList ( ["title" [, "text"]] )


title [optional] The title of the window to read.

text [optional] The text of the window to read.

Return Value

Returns an array of matching window titles and handles.


If no title and text is given then all top-level windows are returned.

The array returned is two-dimensional and is made up as follows:

$array[0][0] = Number of windows returned

$array[1][0] = 1st window title

$array[1][1] = 1st window handle (HWND)

$array[2][0] = 2nd window title

$array[2][1] = 2nd window handle (HWND)


$array[n][0] = nth window title

$array[n][1] = nth window handle (HWND)




$var = WinList()

For $i = 1 to $var[0][0]

; Only display visble windows that have a title

If $var[$i][0] <> "" AND IsVisible($var[$i][1]) Then

MsgBox(0, "Details", "Title=" & $var[$i][0] & @LF & "Handle=" & $var[$i][1])



Func IsVisible($handle)

If BitAnd( WinGetState($handle), 2 ) Then

Return 1


Return 0
