Opt("wintitlematchmode",4) And Wingettitle ("")

5 posts in this topic

I want my script to return to the window that it was at previously, when it finishes a function. I had to set Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4) for the pixel searches, and now $current_window_title = WinGetTitle ("") only returns the value "0". It looks like in the help file that I have to use "active" when using Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4), but I don't know how the syntax should look?

Can you tell me how it should look different?

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $Paused, $cat_1, $date_a, $email, $contact, $company, $email, $title, $SysTrayPixel = 0xFF0000, $DLI_Position_X = 974
Global $DLI_Position_y = 749 , $i, $Check = 0

;;;;;;;; Body of program would go here;;;;;;;;
While 1
    Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",4)
    Sleep(100)
        $coord = PixelSearch ( $DLI_Position_X - 1 , $DLI_Position_y - 1, _
            $DLI_Position_X, $DLI_Position_y, $SysTrayPixel )   
    If Not @error And $Check = 0 Then
        $current_window_title = WinGetTitle ("")
        ToolTip($current_window_title)
        Sleep (10000)
        Click_Time_Left_Start (); If it is not the case that the color is not Found, then Start
        Sleep (200)
        WinActivate ($current_window_title)
        $Check = 1
    ElseIf @error And $Check = 1 Then
        $current_window_title = WinGetTitle ("")
        Click_Time_Left_Pause (); If it is the case that the color is not Found, then Pause
        Sleep (200)
        WinActivate ($current_window_title)
        $Check = 0
    EndIf
WEnd
;;;;;;;;

Func Click_Time_Left_Start ()
WinWait("TimeLeft Stopwatch","")
If Not WinActive("TimeLeft Stopwatch","") Then WinActivate("TimeLeft Stopwatch","")
WinWaitActive("TimeLeft Stopwatch","")
Sleep (200)
Send ("^s");^s Start

Return
EndFunc

Func Click_Time_Left_Pause ()
WinActivate ("TimeLeft Stopwatch")
Send ("^p");^p pause
Return
EndFunc

Straight from the helpfile in the "Advanced Window titles & text" section

Mode 4

Advanced mode.

In this mode special sequences are used in the title parameter so that window classnames and handles can be used. The text parameter remains the same.

The special sequences must contain no whitespace. They are:

"classname=CLASSNAME"

"regexp=REGEXP"

"active"

"last" or ""

"classname=" matches a window based on its classname. For example to identify a window that has the classname "MYCLASS1" then you would use "classname=MYCLASS1" for the title parameter.

"regexp=" matches a window matching REGEXP pattern.

"active" matches the currently active window (same as "" in the default WinTitleMatchMode).

"last" uses the last successful window match so you don't have to keep specifying the title and text again and again. e.g.

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

WinClose("last") ; Closes the previously matched notepad window

Note: If "classname=", "regexp=", "active", "last" or "" are not used as the title then the window matching takes place as in Mode 1 making this a good mode for general use.

Thank you. I am fully aware of the Help File and read it thouroughly before ever posting on the Forums. The problem is, I don't know what the heck it is saying. It looks to me that I need to add "active" somewhere in my script, but I don't know where.

Can you please elaborate?

it's saying

WinGetTitle("active")

Will return the current active window

where-as

WinGetTitle("")

Will return the LAST window

I thought it was pretty straight-forward

Maybe it was straight-forward, but I didn't understand it. Thanks for clarifying.
