I'm trying to call WinList() with a handle. That should be possible:

  The title/hWnd/class of the windows to get the list.

But I only get back an 2d array that looks like this:

0 |

(That means no window was found.)

It's not the window or the handle. When I call other functions like WinExists() or WinGetHandle() it works.

Is it because of me, the description in the reference or because of Autoit who makes a mistake?

No, because of the rest of my program I don't want to use WinGetTitle() because the format of WinList() has to be kept. Alternatively, I could create a 2d array myself, but it should also work with WinList() ... I hope.

Tested a bit, and it appears that it returns an empty array ...

Anyway, WinList returns an array of Title and hWnd. As an hwnd is unique, if you already know it, why do you need WinList ?

Logically, passing an hwnd to WinList should return an array with only 1 entry ...

I don't get the logic behind that statement ...

func _WinList($arg, $text = '')
    if IsPtr($arg) or IsNumber($arg) then
        local $res = WinGetTitle($arg,$text)
        if $res == '' then
            local $ret = [[0,0]]
            return $ret
        local $ret = [[1,0],[$res,ptr($arg)]]
        return $ret
    return WinList($arg,$text)

My program is designed to process the output from a WinList() function. But there is an event in my program where the handle is used instead of the title. Of course I can also write my own function like you wrote one, but I was hoping that it would work without it.

Return Value

Success: a string containing the complete window title.
Failure: "" if the window is not found.

But you're right in the sense of a window can have an empty title, was lazy, anyway just use GetWindowText ...

GetWindowTextA and GetWindowTextW

The result only tells you if it fails or not, this is not about the text itself

Just use the WinAPI : _WinAPI_GetWindowText



If the window has no title bar or text, if the title bar is empty, or if the window or control handle is invalid, the return value is zero

Well, yeah check if the window exists, I'm really starting to be tired :/

EDIT2: nop

$form = GUICreate('')
$res = _WinAPI_GetWindowText($form)
ConsoleWrite(_WinAPI_GetLastError() & ': ' & _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage() & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite('title: "' & $res & '"' & @CRLF)
$res = _WinAPI_GetWindowText(0)
ConsoleWrite(_WinAPI_GetLastError() & ': ' & _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage() & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite('title: "' & $res & '"' & @CRLF)

just check the last error

      Either drag drop the opened file on the server and the temp file, Aut2Exe could not copy to the destination file, as that one is opened, to the edits of this GUI, or take the Aut2Exe error message line to your clipboard, the line will be split automatically.
      This script does not check
      For the required rights to the destination folder (to close open file handles) for correct input Use either clipboard (Aut2Exe message), drag & drop, or copy the full paths of source and destination file *IN ONE* (don't type, if you want to do so, modify the script, for me it's fine this way ;-)

      I have the below toolbar which has buttons that are not visible for the Window Info tool.

      So, in order to be able to click on those buttons, I searched the forum and found the below script which returns all controls for a given window.
      Now that I know the data of the buttons I tried to use the below commands to click a button.  Without any success  :
      ;Using the ClassNN ControlClick($HDL, "", "[ClassNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.33c0d9d2]") ; Using the button handle ControlClick($HDL, "", 0x001205E2) ; trying to go through the array and select the desired button #include <Functions.au3> #include <Array.au3> $HDL = WinWait("GNB_L_Ro") WinActivate($HDL) $ControlList = _GetAllWindowsControls($HDL) Sleep(1000) ControlClick($HDL, "", $ControlList[37][2]) _ArrayDisplay($ControlList) ;_GetAllWindowsControls function is defined in Functions.au3 and contains the script from the above link.  Any suggestions on how to click one of those buttons? Any help is more than appreciated.
      Thank you!

      I'm trying to fill a ListView with all normal viewable windows to act with them.
      First I tried with WinList:
      Local $aWinList = WinList("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.+)]") Local $aTmp, $iID ;~ _ArrayDisplay($aWinList) For $i = $aWinList[0][0] To 1 Step -1 ; going backwards not disturbing the index while cycling through and deleting some If StringStripWS( $aWinList[$i][0], 3) == "" Or _ Not BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), $WIN_STATE_VISIBLE) Or _ BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), $WIN_STATE_MINIMIZED ) Then _ArrayDelete($aWinList, $i) Else ; Window has a Title and is "visible" $aTmp = WinGetPos($aWinList[$i][1]) If $aTmp[0] < -1000 Or $aTmp[1] < -1000 Then ; Window is minimized or tray icon _ArrayDelete($aWinList, $i) EndIf EndIf Next $aWinList[0][0] = UBound($aWinList)-1 ; getting actual # of windows ; Each row is now [ID]=> [Title], [hWnd] But it keeps getting Windows which are definitely not there at least not visible:

      Those windows "Rechner", "Einstellungen", "Netflix", "Microsoft Store", ... are not there!?! 
      It should list only the first three windows, which are real.
      I even tried it with _WinAPI_ UDF:
      $hWnd = _WinAPI_GetForegroundWindow() ; Add items _GUICtrlListView_BeginUpdate($idListview) If $hWnd <> 0 Then $iI = 0 Do If _WinAPI_IsWindow($hWnd) And _WinAPI_IsWindowVisible Then _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($idListview, WinGetTitle($hWnd)) _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($idListview, $iI, $hWnd, 1) $iI += 1 $hWnd = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWnd, $GW_HWNDNEXT) EndIf Until $hWnd = 0 EndIf But it is the same...
      How can i distinguish those invisible windows from normal ones?
      PS: I'm using Windows 10, maybe it is important to know?

      I am currently using Autoit's "WinList" function in an Autoit script, I fully understand it.
      Autoit provides a nice Library for Word VBA so that Some of Autoit's functions can be used within a MSWord VBA script, some of which I am using.
      I have a use for Autoit's "WinList" function which has been provided by AutoIt in their Library for MSWord VBA scripting. The WinList function Creates an array when run. MSWord VBA does not seem to allow this. To create an array in VBA you have to first DIM it, and this does not seem to work for the WinList function.
      For example:
      Dim AutoIt As New AutoItX3Lib.AutoItX3
      MyArray= Autoit(WinList)  produces an error, whether I dim the array or not. 
      It seems that AutoIt has provided a function for VBA that cant be used ??
      Can someone figure out a way to use WinList within Word VBA?

      It's been a while since I've used AutoIt, but I'm having fun with it again.
      I'm running on Windows 7 Pro, 64_bit. with AutoIt 
      In my program, I've called Winlist(), so that I can get a list of all windows on the system.
      I then iterate through the titles, and attempt to copy the title & handle of Windows I'm specifically interested in.
      While this seems to be a very easy task, I'm having a strange problem copying the title & handle of the two windows that I'm interested in.
      In the For loop:
      For $i = 1 To $AllWindowsCount ConsoleWrite() displays the expected Title & handle, from the WindowsDupe array, so it appears that the copy from the $AllWindows array
      works as expected.
      However, when
      _ArrayDisplay($WindowsDupe) is called after the for loop, $WindowsDupe is empty.
      I wasn't able to find any functions in the help file, for copying entire arrays or certain elements, so I thought I would just copy them manually, as seen in the for loop.
      What am I doing wrong with the WindowsDupe array?
      My code is attached.
