17 posts in this topic

Hi,

Is there an possible option to open 2 notepad windows beside each other and switch between them...

Detailed Idea:

Script opens 2 notepad windows, 1 on the left of the screen and one on the right.

Script activates the first window, types some text.

Script activates second window, types some text.

etc.

Any Ideas, or simple scripts? I'm not really good with AutoIt!!

Tnx! :)

Maybe like you said, and then look at "WinActivate" function?

Script opens 2 notepad windows, 1 on the left of the screen and one on the right.

WinMove("[CLASS:Notepad]",'',x,y)

Script activates the first window, types some text.

WinActivate("[CLASS:Notepad]")
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]",'',3)
ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]",'',15,"your text")

Cheers, FireFox.

This is an example script you can experiment with.

#include <SendMessage.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("WinWaitDelay", 0)

If Not WinExists('[CLASS:Notepad]') Then Run(@WindowsDir & '\Notepad.exe')
WinActivate('[CLASS:Notepad]')
WinWait('[CLASS:Notepad]')
$hRNotepad = WinGetHandle('[CLASS:Notepad]')
$iWidth = (@DesktopWidth / 2) - 10
$iHeight = (@DesktopHeight / 2)
$y = (@DesktopHeight / 4)
WinMove($hRNotepad, "", (@DesktopWidth / 2) + 5, $y, $iWidth, $iHeight)
WinSetTitle(WinGetTitle($hRNotepad), "", "R")

Run(@WindowsDir & '\Notepad.exe')
WinActivate("Untitled - ")
WinWait("Untitled - ")

$hLNotepad = WinGetHandle("Untitled - ")
$iWidth = (@DesktopWidth / 2) - 10
$iHeight = (@DesktopHeight / 2)
$y = (@DesktopHeight / 4)

WinMove($hLNotepad, "", 5, $y, $iWidth, $iHeight)
ControlSetText($hLNotepad, "", "", "Left Notepad 1st entry")

WinActivate($hRNotepad)
WinWait($hRNotepad)
Send("{ENTER}")
WinWait($hRNotepad)
ControlSend($hRNotepad, "", "", "ControlSend Right Notepad N0. 1.{ENTER}")
WinWait($hRNotepad)
Send("{ENTER}")
ControlSend($hRNotepad, "", "", "ControlSend Right Notepad No 2.{ENTER}")

WinActivate($hLNotepad)
WinWait($hLNotepad)
Send("^{END}{ENTER}")
ControlSend($hLNotepad, "", "", "ControlSend left Notepad 2nd Entry A{ENTER}B")
WinWait($hLNotepad)

WinActivate($hRNotepad)
WinWait($hRNotepad)
Send("{ENTER}")
ClipPut("ClipPut Right Notepad.")
_SendMessage($hRNotepad, $WM_COMMAND, $WM_PASTE, 0) ; $WM_PASTE, 0)
Send("{ENTER}")

WinActivate($hLNotepad)
WinWait($hLNotepad)
Send("{ENTER}")
ControlSend($hLNotepad, "", "", "Last ControlSend Left Notepad ")
WinWait($hLNotepad)
Send("^{END}{ENTER}")
WinWait($hLNotepad)
ClipPut("ClipPut left Notepad.")
Send("^v")

I dont see other way to do that :

For $i = 1 To 4
    Run("notepad.exe")
Next

For $i = 1 To 4
    Sleep(250)
    WinActivate("[CLASS:Notepad]", '')
    WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]", '', 3)
    Send("Notepad " & $i)
    WinSetState("[CLASS:Notepad]", '', @SW_MINIMIZE)
Next

Sleep(3000)
For $i = 1 To 4
    Sleep(300)
    ProcessClose("notepad.exe")
Next

Cheers, FireFox.

At the same time is at the same time... you have min 1ms between 2 function so its impossible :)

You have a (bad?) habit to "judge" scripts only by looking at them on the surface :D - Please, check first the concept/idea that someone trying to show/pass, before you say how stuff works in other's scripts :o ...

And actualy i have there 10 ms delay :D, but i could remove the sleep completely (with a "price" of CPU load), and it's not the point here... the concept here is quit simple: First we executing few scripts that waiting for the main Edit (of the "parent" GUI) to have specific data (in our case it is a Notepad Instances = 5), and when the last notepad process is executed, this data is set and then all scripts will "fire" (send) some string to the notepad that was preserved (by title) for this current script - so the bottom line here is that the strings are sent in the same time (for the human eye anyway, i don't think that we need here an atomic precision :) ).

You're Right... :)

of course but I understand that by "the same time" :D

I am right

Nope, you talking about a delay between functions in the same script, and in my example it's not the case... but it's not really matter, as someone said once :o : “Be smart, not right” :) ... or something like this.

P.S

Sorry for the offtopic.

In all reality, it's theoretically impossible to do more than one thing at once, because the processor deals with things round-robin style, therefore two things can never be done at the same time.. unless you're working with multiple processors.. ;D

Hi,

Is there an possible option to open 2 notepad windows beside each other and switch between them...

Detailed Idea:

Script opens 2 notepad windows, 1 on the left of the screen and one on the right.

Script activates the first window, types some text.

Script activates second window, types some text.

etc.

Any Ideas, or simple scripts? I'm not really good with AutoIt!!

Tnx! :)

Like this perhaps:

;============= Open Notepads part =============
$iPID1 = Run(@WindowsDir & "\Notepad.exe")
$hNotepad1 = _WinWaitByPID($iPID1)

WinMove($hNotepad1, "", 0, 0, 300, @DesktopHeight-30)

$iPID2 = Run(@WindowsDir & "\Notepad.exe")
$hNotepad2 = _WinWaitByPID($iPID2)
;============= Open Notepads part =============


;============= Set text part =============
WinMove($hNotepad2, "", @DesktopWidth-300, 0, 300, @DesktopHeight-30)

WinActivate($hNotepad1)
ControlSetText($hNotepad1, "", "Edit1", "Notepad Test 1")

WinActivate($hNotepad2)
ControlSetText($hNotepad2, "", "Edit1", "Notepad Test 2")
;============= Set text part =============

Func _WinWaitByPID($iPID, $iWaitTime=-1)
    Local $iTimer = TimerInit()
    Local $aWinList
    
    While 1
        $aWinList = WinList()
        
        For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0]
            If WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1]) = $iPID Then Return $aWinList[$i][1]
        Next
        
        If $iWaitTime > 0 And TimerDiff($iTimer) >= $iWaitTime * 1000 Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
    
    Return 0
EndFunc

?

:o
