Check if active window is what u want

Recommended Posts

Dirk Diggler

I found that AutoIt hasn't variable or macros like @Activewindow. So, how i can check if active window title matches some regular expression?

Maybe

$win = "Untitled -"
If WinActive($win) Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "Window was active")
EndIf

maybe this can help

Dim $num, $names
$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
    $num = $num + 1
    $names = $names & $var[$i][0] & @CRLF
  EndIf
Next

Func IsVisible($handle)
  If BitAnd( WinGetState($handle), 2 ) Then
    Return 1
  Else
    Return 0
  EndIf

EndFunc


MsgBox(0, "Total Windows = " & $num, "Title's of all task bar Windows" & @CRLF & @CRLF & $names & "   ")

While he's making a long script, you could try this:

MsgBox(0, 'test', WinGetTitle(''))

Edit:

After reading this again, I don't think I'm following correctly...

HotKeySet('{end}', 'testtitle')
While 1
    Sleep(100000)
WEnd
Func testtitle()
    If StringInString(WinGetTitle(''), 'text in title I want') Then MsgBox(0, 'test', WinGetTitle(''))
EndFunc
This picks the active windows title, and then matches a string in it, if the statement is true, then the msgbox will appear... Is the right direction, or does Valauter have you on the right path? Edited by SmOke_N

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
