WinList with title-parameter from function call


Go to solution Solved by HurleyShanabarger,

Hello,

I am writing an UDF which uses WinList. The title-parameter is taken from the function call of the UDF.

If the title-parameter is blank

WinList("")

or default

WinList(Default)

the function returns something different, as if called using this

WinList()

Is it possible to have the same output as in the third example? This is the code I am using (reduced to the core):

#Region Includes
    #include <Array.au3>
#EndRegion Includes

#Region Main
    _Main()

    Func _Main()
        Local $arWinList

        ; Return WinList with all windows
        $arWinList = WinList()
        _ArrayDisplay($arWinList)

        ; Returns WinList with only - in my case - scite window from the script
        $arWinList = _WinListWrapper("")
        _ArrayDisplay($arWinList)
    EndFunc   ;==>_Main
#EndRegion Main

#Region Functions
    Func _WinListWrapper($sgTitle = "")
        Return WinList($sgTitle)
    EndFunc
#EndRegion Functions

@HurleySh.

you can use EnumWindows

 s it possible to have the same output as in the third example?

#include <Array.au3>
#include <WinAPISysWin.au3>
    Local $aWindows = _WinAPI_EnumWindows(False)
    Local $aResult[$aWindows[0][0]][5]
    For $i = 1 To $aWindows[0][0]
        $aResult[$i - 1][0] = $aWindows[$i][0]
        $aResult[$i - 1][1] = WinGetTitle($aWindows[$i][0])
    Next
    _ArrayDisplay($aResult, "_WinAPI_EnumWindows")

_WinAPI_EnumWindows

Enumerates all windows:

_WinAPI_EnumWindows ( [$bVisible = True [, $hWnd = Default]] )

Parameters

$bVisible [optional] Window selection flag:
 True - Returns only visible windows
False - Returns all windows
$hWnd [optional] Handle of the starting windows (default Desktop windows)

@ad777, sorry I mixed _WinAPI_EnumWindows with _WinAPI_EnumWindowsTop.

@Luke94, I use _WinAPI_EnumDesktopWindows like this, I get the same result as WinList, but without the option to filter for title/name:

_WinAPI_EnumDesktopWindows(_WinAPI_GetThreadDesktop(_WinAPI_GetCurrentThreadId()), False)

My solution for now is this:

Func _WinList($vWndw = "", $sgText = "")
    Return ($sgText Or $vWndw) ? WinList($vWndw, $sgText) : WinList()
EndFunc   ;==>_WinList

Still feels like a bug, that if use "", Default, -1 or Null WinList is returning something different.
