_API_FindWindow_2

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I wouldve posted in Example Scripts if the forum would let me...

Anyway, I feel this may be helpful for someone....

I noticed that the Auto3Lib _API_FindWindow() function didnt support Null title (I saw this option used in VB scripts)

and that it only exported as hwnd and not long...

Now, the documentation for the original function SAYS that if the title is blank it will match all titles, however i could not get this to work.....

So, to help myself and make a couple of my own scripts easier I added the features.

Syntax for the below code:

_API_FindWindow_2 ( $sClassName [, $sReturn [, $sWindowName] ] )

$sClassName A string that specifies the class name...

$sReturn Optional: Set Return Type

0 for hwnd return value (default)

1 for long return value

$sWindowName Optional: A string that specifies the window name.

If $sWindowName equals a float with a value of -1 or is exluded will default to a VB-style null

which WILL match all titles and get the find the window based on the ClassName alone.

Return Types

HWND or LONG (user-specified)

Global $vbNullString = chr(0)
Func _API_FindWindow_2($sClassName, $sReturn=0, $sWindowName=-1)
    Dim $sWindowName
    Dim $sReturn
    Global $vbNullString
    Local $sWindNameType
    
    $sWindNameType="str"
    If $sReturn==0 Then $sReturn="hwnd"
    If $sReturn==1 Then $sReturn="long"
    If $sWindowName==-1 Then
        $sWindowName=$vbNullString
        $sWindNameType="ptr"
    EndIf
  Local $aResult

  $aResult = DllCall("User32.dll", $sReturn, "FindWindow", "str", $sClassName, $sWindNameType, $sWindowName)
  Return $aResult[0]
EndFunc
