Get the Window Class

2 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I'm looking to get the window class (see the autoIT INfo tool below). I have a handle on the window and it's title, I'd like to get the class name for the window programmatically! I can't find out where to get it at. Anyone got this laying around on their computer?

>>>>>>>>>>>> Window Details <<<<<<<<<<<<<

Title: AutoIt Forums -> Posting New Topic - Mozilla Firefox

Class: MozillaUIWindowClass <<< ---- (I want to get this info)

Size: X: 42 Y: 0 W: 970 H: 738

Try this:

$list = WinList()
for $x = 1 to $list[0][0]
    ;filter out empty titles
    If $list[$x][0] <> "" Then
        ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("Title:%s  Classname:%s",$list[$x][0],_GetClassName($list[$x][1])&@LF))

; Function Name:    _GetClassName

Func _GetClassName($nCtrl)
    If Not IsHWnd($nCtrl) then $nCtrl = HWnd($nCtrl)
    Local $struct = DllStructCreate("char[128]"),$classname = 0
    $ret = DllCall("user32.dll","int","GetClassName","hwnd",$nCtrl,"ptr",DllStructGetPtr($struct),"int",DllStructGetSize($struct))
    If IsArray($ret) Then
        $classname = DllStructGetData($struct,1)
        While (StringIsDigit(StringRight($classname,1)))
            $classname = StringTrimRight($classname,1)
    $struct =0

Edit: I did not try passing the handle to WinGetClassList builtin function. I use this function mostly as a replacement for vb's TypeOf function.
