_ProcessGetWinTitle () UDF

Recommended Posts



This is my first UDF. I thought it may be useful, because i use it very often in my scripts :)

Code :

#include <Process.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>

; Function Name:    _ProcessGetWinTitle ()
; Description:      Gets all windowss associated with a process in a unidimensional array
; Parameter(s):     $sProcessName - Name of the process ("Explorer.exe", for instance)
;                   $iVisibility - Parameter used to check for visible/invisible windowss
;                   0 - Check only visible windowss
;                   1 - Check for every Window asociated to the specified process
; Requirement(s):   <Process.au3> and <Array.au3> are required
; Return Value(s):  Success : The array containing the windows name
;                   Failure : 0
; Author(s):        Iuli
Func _ProcessGetWinTitle($sProcessName,$iVisibility)
    Local $iK, $WinArray[1]
    $aWinList=WinList ()
    For $iK=1 To $aWinList[0][0]
        If $iVisibility=0 Then
            If (_ProcessGetName(WinGetProcess($aWinList[$iK][0]))=$sProcessName) And (_IsVisible($aWinList[$iK][0])) Then
        ElseIf $iVisibility=1 Then  
            If _ProcessGetName(WinGetProcess($aWinList[$iK][0]))=$sProcessName Then
    Return $WinArray

Func _IsVisible($handle)
  If BitAnd( WinGetState($handle), 2 ) Then 
    Return 1
    Return 0

Here's an alternative that may be faster. It's a polite process close function that sends the WM_CLOSE messsage to all top level windows of a given process. Same basic idea -

Func _CloseProcess_Polite($proc)
    Local $tpid, $array
    $tpid = ProcessExists($proc)
    If $tpid == 0 Then Return
    $array = WinList() ; $array[n][1]=hwnd of all top-level windows
    For $i = 1 To $array[0][0] ; # of windows returned
        ; pid of process that owns window
        If WinGetProcess($array[$i][1]) == $tpid Then ; window is owned by target process

$WL = WinList()
For $nb = 1 to $WL[0][0]
$wgp = WinGetProcess($WL[$nb][1])
TrayTip("Window & PID",$WL[$nb][1] & ' = ' & $wgp, 0, 1)

if you dont like pid then use _processgetname (udf) or _processlistproperties (udf)

Edit : oops didnt seen script from wraithdu
