Identify window it changes title

5 posts in this topic

hi all,

is there a way to tag particular windows so that even if they change titles, autoit can still identify them and work with them?

an example would be internet web browser windows that change title when a new page is loaded.

thanks for any help.

there are a few, each one has its own identifier.

$x=WinGetHandle ( "AutoIt Forums","")
msgbox(1,"",$x)

You can also use the "classname=" if you only have one of that program running, it should show in the autoit window spy

Another example:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4);advanced mode that supports handles

$h = WinGetHandle("Some Window Title")
WinSetTitle("handle=" & $h, "", "New Title")
WinSetTitle("handle=" & $h, "", "Another New Title")

yea, or change the one you have up:

sleep(1000)
$title=WingetTitle("","")
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4);advanced mode that supports handles
$h = WinGetHandle($title)
WinSetTitle("handle=" & $h, "", "New Title")
sleep(1000)
WinSetTitle("handle=" & $h, "", "Another New Title")
sleep(1000)
WinSetTitle("handle=" & $h, "",$title)
