watching for different windows?

3 posts in this topic

I have a list of windows (titles/classes) that need to trigger different events in my code. How would I get autoit to watch for these windows at the same time. The list changes so I need to figure out how to have this happen dynamically. I know that when i use the windows management functions, it freezes code execution per window it is looking for. I looked at Winexists but not sure if looping is the best way to do this.

Keep the list in one place, i.e. a delimited string or an array, and have a loop or an AdLibEnable function test the list with WinExists() periodically.

WinList() won't help because you only get Title\Handle, and you want to look for Title/Class.

:D
