_SetLastWindowActive()

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I made this function from examples floating around in the forums and the help file, and I'm mostly posting it so I can find it again next time I need it :rolleyes:

Hrm, maybe someone else will find it useful too.

Props to Larry, whoever made WinList() Function/Example, and to /dev/null for pointing me in the right direction when I asked about it.

Func _SetLastWindowActive()
    Local $iCount = 0, $handle = "", $aWinList = WinList()
    For $iz = 1 To $aWinList[0][0]
        If $aWinList[$iz][0] <> "" And BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$iz][1]), 2) Then
            $iCount = $iCount + 1
            $handle = $aWinList[$iz][1]
        EndIf
        If $iCount = 2 Then ExitLoop
    Next
    WinActivate($handle)
EndFunc   ;==>_SetLastWindowActive
