Converting Window Handle ... ?

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I would like to convert to a decimal value the window handle returned by a GUICreate statement :

$Handle=GUICreate("Hello World", 200, 100)
$nb=dec($Handle)

i always get a 0 value ... what am i doing wrong ?

i'm sure that's a dumb question ... :mellow:

Thanks

Hi there,

Try :

WinGetHandle("Hello World")

Cheers!

This returns a number other than zero.

$Handle=GUICreate("Hello World", 200, 100)
MsgBox(0,"","$Handle: " & $Handle & @CRLF & "Hex: " & hex($Handle)  & @CRLF &  "Dec: " & Dec(hex($Handle)))

I try to automate a gis software (Mapinfo). I need to build a string like the following :

$msg ="Set Application Window " & dec(hex($Handle))

where the Handle is awaited to be decimal or, if hexa, prefixed with "&h" ...

But i didn't succeed to get the right syntax when keeping the handle in hexadecimal ...

Is there any easier way ?

$Handle=GUICreate("Hello World", 200, 100)
MsgBox(0,"","$Handle: " & $Handle & @CRLF & "Hex: " & hex($Handle)  & @CRLF &  "Dec: " & Dec(hex($Handle)))
yep, it works ... but i thought the Handle returned by GUICreate was already an hexadecimal value ... so i don't really understand why hex() is required ...

Thanks anyway.

Well, dec requires the Hex value without prefix...

$Handle = WinGetHandle("")

$Number = Number($Handle)
$hex = Hex($Handle)
$Dec = Dec(Hex($Handle))

MsgBox(0, '', "$HWND:" &@TAB&@TAB & $Handle & @CRLF & _
        "Number($HWND):"&@TAB &  $Number & @CRLF & _
        "HEX($HWND):"&@TAB & $hex & @CRLF & _ 
        "Dec(Hex($HWND)):"&@TAB & $Dec & @CRLF & _
        "Hex()+prefix:" & @TAB & "&h" & $hex)
