Try this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $Last_Hovered_hWnd = 0

HotKeySet("{Esc}", "Quit")

GUICreate("_Control_GetHovered")
GUISetState()

While 1
    $aMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    
    Switch $aMsg[0]
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_MOUSEMOVE
            $Hovered_hWnd = _Control_GetHovered()
            
            If $Last_Hovered_hWnd <> $Hovered_hWnd Then
                Printf(StringFormat("Hovered: hWnd (%s), Text (%s)", $Hovered_hWnd, ControlGetText($Hovered_hWnd, "", "")))
                
                $Last_Hovered_hWnd = $Hovered_hWnd
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Printf($Str, $Line=@ScriptLineNumber)
    ConsoleWrite(StringFormat( _
                "!===========================================================\n" & _
                "+======================================================\n" & _
                "--> Script Line (%i):\n!\t%s\n" & _
                "+======================================================\n", $Line, $Str))
EndFunc

Func _Control_GetHovered()
    Local $iOld_Opt_MCM = Opt("MouseCoordMode", 1)
    Local $Ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "WindowFromPoint", "long", MouseGetPos(0), "long", MouseGetPos(1))
    
    Opt("MouseCoordMode", $iOld_Opt_MCM)
    
    Return HWnd($Ret[0])
EndFunc

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Or if it's your GUI, then just check the $aMsg[1] when $GUI_EVENT_MOUSEMOVE event is fired :)

Sorry, that's will not work, the event is fired only from the currently active GUI (last active).

thx, it nearly does the job. "WindowFromPoint" - got to learn the winapis by heart.

just one thing: it rather returns the control hovering over, not the winhandle. only if you hover over the title bar or its backgroud or border, you get the winhandle and text.

i need just the window, the control doesn't matter, how to do that ?`

j.

look:

$gui=GUICreate("_Control_GetHovered")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("label",10,10,200,30,513)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0xFFFFFF)
GUISetState()

Dim $Last_Hovered_hWnd

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
            Exit
    EndSwitch
    Sleep(50)
    $Hovered_hWnd = _Control_GetHovered()
    
    If $Last_Hovered_hWnd <> $Hovered_hWnd Then
        WinSetTitle($gui,"",StringFormat("Hovered: hWnd (%s), _
Text (%s)", WinGetTitle($Hovered_hWnd), ControlGetText($Hovered_hWnd, "", "")))
        
        $Last_Hovered_hWnd = $Hovered_hWnd
    EndIf
WEnd

Func _Control_GetHovered()
    Local $iOld_Opt_MCM = Opt("MouseCoordMode", 1)
    Local $Ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "WindowFromPoint", "long", MouseGetPos(0), "long", MouseGetPos(1))
    
    Opt("MouseCoordMode", $iOld_Opt_MCM)
    
    Return HWnd($Ret[0])
EndFunc

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

ja, i tested the mouseevents, but you have to specify the gui, and guigetcursorinfo does not help either.

very nice, thanks ! :)

but :

- it works only for AutoIt guis (that's okay for my purposes)

- if you leave away the $GUI_EVENT_MOUSEMOVE it also works while it's inactive.

thanks, man, for me it's okay, but for general use it is still not sufficient. maybe it can be worked over again.

more complicated than it seemed..... i wonder why this hasn't been discussed before....

#Include <GuiConstants.au3>

$Gui = GUICreate("_Control_GetHovered")

$Status = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 300, 350, 40)

GUISetState()

Dim $Last_Hovered_hWnd

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    $Hovered_hWnd = _Control_GetHovered()
            
    If $Last_Hovered_hWnd <> $Hovered_hWnd Then
        $Last_Hovered_hWnd = $Hovered_hWnd
               
        $hParent = _Control_GetParent($Hovered_hWnd)
        If IsHWnd($hParent) Then $Hovered_hWnd = $hParent
                
        $sTitle = StringFormat("Hovered: hWnd (%s), Text (%s)", $Hovered_hWnd, WinGetTitle($Hovered_hWnd))
                
        GUICtrlSetData($Status, $sTitle)
    EndIf
    
WEnd

Func _Control_GetParent($hCtrl)
    Local $aRet = DllCall("User32.dll", "hwnd", "GetParent", "hwnd", $hCtrl)
    Return $aRet[0]
EndFunc

    Local $Ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "WindowFromPoint", "long", MouseGetPos(0), "long", MouseGetPos(1))

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.

thank you.

i would never have found "GetAncestor". _Mouse_Win_GetInfo() is so basic, it should be included.
