Distinguish between Window Handle and Control Handle?

3 posts in this topic

Anyone know -- Is there any way to differentiate between a control handle and a window handle? isHWnd returns true for both, as does _WinAPI_Iswindow... e.g.

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
ShellExecute("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

$window_handle = WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad", "")
$control_handle = ControlGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad", "", "Edit1")

ConsoleWrite(isHWnd($window_handle) & ":" & IsHWnd($control_handle) & @CR)
ConsoleWrite(_WinAPI_IsWindow($window_handle) & ":" & _WinAPI_IsWindow($control_handle) & @CR)

I'd like to be able to take different code paths based upon which type is passed to a function.

Thanks,

Dale

A control is a window.

A control is a window.

All right then.

With that knowledge, I can get the classname and this gives me what I need:

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
ShellExecute("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

$window_handle = WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad", "")
$control_handle = ControlGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad", "", "Edit1")

ConsoleWrite(_WinAPI_GetClassName($window_handle) & @CR)
ConsoleWrite(_WinAPI_GetClassName($control_handle) & @CR)

Thanks Valik
