Wait For Multiple Windows With Only Partially Known Title

Recommended Posts

___Kevin___

Hi,

i'm trying to write a script that waits for windows to come up and handles them.

At the moment, this is my code:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
;wait for a window containing "Untitled"
WinWaitActive("Untitled")
$title = WinGetTitle("Untitled")
... do something...

This only works with one window. I need to handle multiple windows which contain my searchstring in their titles, so something returning a list of titles matching my search would be perfect. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Kevin.

This is the nicest solution to this if you ask me. Have not tried it yet thought.

The Latest AutoIt Beta can wait for more then 2 windows by using regular expressions.

Here is a Demo

Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 4)
Switch Random(1, 3, 1)
    Case 1
        RunWait('explorer "' & @ProgramFilesDir & '"')
    Case 2
        RunWait('explorer "' & @WindowsDir & '"')
    Case 3
        RunWait('explorer "' & @SystemDir & '"')
EndSwitch
WinWait('regexp=(?i)program files|windows|system32', '', 1)
$title = WinGetTitle('regexp=(?i)program files|windows|system32')
Sleep(500)
WinClose($title)
