handle of multiple windows

3 posts in this topic

hi everybody , i'm new to scripting

i used to work with multiple windows (same title)

i use "hotkeyset" to send keys to diffirent windows thru "wingethandle" but i just can use "INSTANCE=1...", "INSTANCE=2" and it is uncomfortable when i switch to another window

can some one help me to get the handle of an active window thru a hot key then i can use hotkeyset to send key to that specific window

i searched for "handle" and found

hwin_1, hwin_2 ...

but i don't know how to use it

thank you

WinGetHandle("") ... (note the quotes) will get the handle of the active window.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

For example you can use this type:

HotKeySet("{F10}","_MyFunc")

Func _MyFunc()
If WinActive("Name of GUI") = 1 Then
...
CODE
...
EndIf
EndFunc

When the words fail... music speaks
