MDI Child windows?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I have a MDI Application running which opens several child windows. I want to access a specified pixel in one of those childs.

How can I do that? ActiveWindow is always the MDI-Frame. I can't tell, where it is located on the screen, so absolute coordinates do not work. I need relative.

The window spy shows me the title of the active child window somewhere in its list of the "visible window text" area...

How can I access one specific child window in an MDI frame? I need the coordinates (inside the MDI frame) of this window to go ahead from there and find the pixel I am so desperately looking for :)

Any help appreciated!

thanks, Mike

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

if i use the window title of the mdi CHILD i get an error and no array is returned from the function. If I use the title of the MDI Frame i get (of course) the coordinates of the main window. This approach doesn't work or I missed something fundamental. Seems like I have no way to access the inner form of a MDI.

Can you explain that a little closer please or do you have any other ideas?

thx, mike

I don't know if it will help, but have you tried the option WinSearchChildren?
