Odd Problem -- WinList Not Working

8 posts in this topic

When I iterate through the contents of WinList(), one of my windows is missing. It is active and visible, and when it use "Au3Info.exe" on it, it correctly displays the window title, class, dimensions, etc.

However, if I use WinList and iterate through every single window it returns, the window in question is nowhere to be found. Likewise, if I use WinWait(), the function simply hangs forever, even though the window it is waiting for clearly exists.

How is this possible?

Thanks,

gm

try using the example from the help file :(

if this don't work the maybee the window is specially hidden to

functions like winlist to prevent access to it by programs :shocked:

$var = WinList()

For $i = 1 to $var[0][0]
  ; Only display visble windows that have a title
  If $var[$i][0] <> "" AND IsVisible($var[$i][1]) Then
    MsgBox(0, "Details", "Title=" & $var[$i][0] & @LF & "Handle=" & $var[$i][1])
  EndIf
Next

Func IsVisible($handle)
  If BitAnd( WinGetState($handle), 2 ) Then 
    Return 1
  Else
    Return 0
  EndIf

EndFunc

alex,

yes, i already tried using the help file example. I also tried taking out the visible and active filter just to be sure -- still no luck.

how could a program make itself invisible to WinList?

also, if a program did attempt to hide itself like that, why is it still visible to au3Info.exe?

Thanks,

gm

Not me. The AutoItInfo data wasn't as helpful as I had hoped. No idea what your problem is.

Maybe you could describe this "VIP Lounge" window some more? What is it? What program does it belong to? What do you normally do with it?

It's an installer window for some casino software that I use alot. Basically there are a handful of casinos that use the same software type, and I am trying to automate the installation process so I can install them on the 3 computers I use and save myself a bit of time, and get some more practice with autoIt coding too. Anyway, I noticed the problem right off the bat and it was so strange I figured I'd post about it. Basically, it is just like any other windows window... except the autoIt functions can't detect it for some reason.... very odd.

Thanks,

gm
