Report Window is Child

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Basically, how do I get a notice/report of whether or not a window is a child and the name of it's parent?

Here's the script I've been working on/with. It would be awesome if the text files showed which windows were children. I'm researching how to do this, but can't seem to arrive at a conclusion. Furthermore, I'm always open to comments on efficiency in the script!

Much props to Smoke_N for awesome direction thus far!!

IsChild and GetParent API call... I think I have done this once or twice already on the forum.

Smoke_N, I'm really new to the dll calls in general. (It's soo cool though!)

Is this sort of what you mentioned. I'm doing more research and will begin some testing in a bit.

Just thought I'd ask and link this to this thread.

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...&hl=IsChild

Layer's Func

Func _IsChild($hWndParent, $hWnd)
    Local $v_Call = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "IsChild", "hwnd", $hWndParent, "hwnd", $hWnd)
    Return $v_Call[0]
EndFunc

Awesome direction btw Smoke_N!! This is going to be some "good learnin'" :whistle:

Smoke_N,

I don't understand IsChild. I read about it on msdn (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633524.aspx) and I looked through examples in the forums (which I only found one file and seven mentions of the ms function).

I'd like to know more about IsChild so if you know of a good place, I'd appreciate it. I'm going to do some Wikipedia-searching.

What I did for now is have the script use GetParent (see below) and test if the result is 0x000000 (that is a unowned window).

Func _GetParent($hWnd)
    Local $v_Call = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "GetParent", "hwnd", $hWnd)
    Return $v_Call[0]
EndFunc

What do you think. This only let's me do markers showing that a window is a child. I'd like to report what its parent is though.

I thought you wanted the parent hwnd, which is why I suggested IsChild... to find out if a window is a child, I've always used this:

Func _WinIsParent($hWnd)
    If IsHwnd($hWnd) = 0 And WinExists($hWnd) Then $hWnd = WinGetHandle($hWnd)
    Local $aGetParent = DllCall('User32.dll', 'hwnd', 'GetParent', 'hwnd', $hWnd)
    If IsArray($aGetParent) And $aGetParent[0] Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Return 1
EndFunc

Edit:

I pasted the function wrong... sorry.

Smoke_N, this is great. One thing I'd really like to do is be able to organize the child windows under their parent windows. I can get it to readout what it's parent is but I'm at a loss for reorganizing the children.

I really don't understand how WinList retrieves the window list.
