Closing windows

5 posts in this topic

I`ve got a question. Can i close a window that I only know a part of its name? For example, let`s say I want to close a window called 123test456 but I only know that it has "test" in its name. How can i close it? I hope you understood what i want to say.

From help file:

AutoIt operates in one of four "Window matching" modes. The modes are set with the AutoItSetOption function using the WinTitleMatchMode option.

Mode 1 (default)

Matches partial titles from the start.

In this mode the a window titled Untitled - Notepad would be matched by "Untitled - Notepad", "Untitled", "Un", etc.

e.g.

WinWait("Untitled")

Mode 2

Matches any substring in the title.

In this mode a window titled Untitled - Notepad would be matched by "Untitled - Notepad", "Untitled", "Notepad", "pad", etc.

e.g.

WinWait("Notepad")
