#32770 Window with an Empty Title - Please Help

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am trying to automatically close an update prompt window that pops up everytime I started an application I purchased with the following code. The problem is that the update prompt window has an empty title.

I am able to use this code to close #32770 windows with any title, but it seems like it does not work properly for window that has empty title.

Could somebody please suggest a way to close a window with empty title or show me how I can modify the existing code to successfully match empty title window?

I have also attached the window info I got from AutoIt info tool with this thread. Please help, I am running out of ideas.

Thanks in advance.

        ConsoleWrite("Debug: Detected update prompt window" & @LF)
        $hWin = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:#32770]","")
        WinActivate($hWin)
        ExitLoop
    Else
        ConsoleWrite("Debug: Update prompt window not detected yet..." & @LF)
    EndIf
WEnd

Sleep(500)
ControlClick($hWin, "", "[CLASS:Button;TEXT:No]")

The #32770 class is used for a lot of Windows system prompts and dialogs. Closing things on just that parameters could have undesirable effects. Much better to get something unique to look for.

As rasim already posted, including some unique text is the easiest option.

Another way to differentiate a window like that is the controls it contains. Test if for a Button control that contains the text "OK", "&Next", or "Finish" for example. There are lots of options for reliably specifying the correct window.

Note the current Beta (3.2.11.7) includes advanced matching parameters for X, Y, W, H if that's all you know.
