how do I get the handle from _IECreate()?

Recommended Posts

sigil

After I create an instance of IE using

$ieObj=_IECreate("this URL")

I want to get the handle for the window that I just opened. I know I can get it by using

WinGetHandle("window's title goes here")

but I want something more reliable, in case the web page's title changes, or there's more than one window open with that title. Is there a way to use the object to get the window's handle?

If it makes things simpler, my goal is to detect whether or not the user has closed the instance of IE made by _IECreate().

$hIE = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")

:D

You can also do WinGetHandle($ieObj)

I know that is not documented but if you do that, i.e, it will return 0x000C0646. Then if I do a WinGetHandle on that same window using the title it returns 0x000C0646.
