Why is a window not activated by a partial title?


Recommended Posts

A C# / .Net 5.0 console project.

using AutoIt;
using System;
using static AutoIt.AutoItX;

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", -2);

Console.WriteLine("Window activating...");


Console.WriteLine(
    "by partial title: " +
    WinActivate("OneNote")
);

Console.WriteLine(
    "by full title: " +
    WinActivate("title - OneNote")
);

Console.WriteLine(
    "by handle: " +
    WinActivate(new IntPtr(0x0000000000250D90))
);

The output:

Window activating...
by partial title: 0
by full title: 1
by handle: 1

Why the partial title activation doesn't work?

Did you check whether there a more windows that could be valid for the partial window title?

If the AutoIt project is not dead, then it is definitely sluggishly maintained.

..and your point being?:

  • show how thankful you are?
  • Trying to be a smart-ass?
  • anything in between those 2 categories?

Let us know when you have any comments that contribute like what you are currently missing. ;)

Just one window.

Apparently, I'll have to use p/invoke or look for nuget packages for UI automation. I have a feeling that migration from AutoIt to .NET of my 2013 project will take a very loooong time… Although why am I surprised? After all, I'm using free tools. Furthermore, from 2018.

With the attitude you just showed, I highly doubt someone will run to help you out.  Good luck though.

Well, thank you for another pointless answer.

It is very sad that people with the Developers & MVPs statuses are of no use. This is the price we pay for using free closed-source tools developed by unpaid enthusiasts.

Yeap.

Think we are done here.
