win title match mode

2 posts in this topic

Are there any ways to match only the win title, but not the visible window text

Matches partial titles from the start, and ignore the visable text.

for example..

2 windows

window title : ABC - 12345678 [orginal] - DEF - Active

window title : ABC - 23456789 [copy] - DEF - Active

program will read the no. "12345678" | "23456789" from file

and open the windows

winactive("ABC - " & $number, "")

but there'll be some error window pop up from the : ABC - 23456789 [copy] - DEF - Active

that window will have the title : Error


i check for


but ^ this code always look into other window's visible text, and cause error....

is there any way i can check only title = "Error" and do not look into the visible text ?

The help file is quite specific.

Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 2)
Global $Win = 'ABC - ', $GetTitle
While 1
    $GetTitle = WinGetTitle($Win)
    If WinExists($Win) Then MsgBox(64, 'Info', 'The full Title is: ' & @CR & $GetTitle)
