Hi

In the startup of the script I would like to manually (by mouse) select the window where I will be running script. This is because the title of the window will every time be different.

What kind of code is needed to do that?

Thanks!

It is a my own specific program where the title of the program will be different every time I open it. This is why I have to select window manually, because selecting of the window cannot be automatic.

If the window's title doesn't change completely, but always have a part of it which is constant, then you can use REGEXPTITLE to match the window :)

So I found that there is a one constant thing in the title. It is the word information: "(1/8) - Information - Open 567884 - AG - \\Remote"

How would you make the code to choose this window?

This could be one of many ways:

Local $hWinHandle = WinGetHandle("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)^\(\d\/\d\) \- Information \-]")

But, as @Nine stated, try to use the CLASS of the Window, which you can find using the AutoItWindowInfo Tool :)

P.S.: OT, but congrats for the 1k reputation @Nine! :cheer:

Open the 
AutoIt Window Information Tool and use it one the window you are trying to automate;
then, post the content of the Summary tab here, and we'll help you through the development of the code you need :)

Actually I just noticed that CLASS wont work in this case. As I have also other windows with same CLASS.

Run the code below and post the content of the SciTE console:

FindWindow()

Func FindWindow()
    
    Local $arrWinList
    
    $arrWinList = WinList()
    
    For $i = 1 To $arrWinList[0][0] Step 1
        If StringInStr($arrWinList[$i][0], "Information") Then ConsoleWrite("Title of the " & $i & " window = " & $arrWinList[$i][0] & @CRLF)
    Next
    
EndFunc

>"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "U:\xxxxxxx
Title of the 58 window =  (1/8) - Information - Open 567884 - AG - \\Remote
>Exit code: 0    Time: 0.4272

 

How to proceed the code to get it pressing button comands? I'm a bit struggling here in the start ;D

You could use this also :

#include <Constants.au3>
;for testing purpose
GUICreate("(1/8) - Information - Open 567884 - AG - \\Remote")
GUISetState()
;your code starts here
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("- Information -")
ConsoleWrite ($hWnd & @CRLF)
WinActivate($hWnd)
WinWaitActive($hWnd)

Both functions should return the handle of the window you are looking for:

FindWindow()

Func FindWindow()

    Local $arrWinList, _
          $hdlWindow

    $arrWinList = WinList()

    For $i = 1 To $arrWinList[0][0] Step 1
        If StringInStr($arrWinList[$i][0], "Information") Then
            ConsoleWrite("Title of the " & $i & " window = " & $arrWinList[$i][0] & @CRLF)
            $hdlWindow = $arrWinList[$i][1]
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next

    Return $hdlWindow

EndFunc

Func FindWindow()
    Return WinList("[REGEXPTITLE:\(\d+\/\d+\) \- Information \-]")[1][1]
EndFunc

In order to let the script works, you have to comment one of them.
By the way, this is your fishing rod; now it's time for you to make your own fishing and learn something from the help file :)

This one worked :) Thanks thumbs up! Next time different fishing rod...
