2 Similar Window Titles

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

Say I have two windows with the following titles:

1) "Table #12345678"


2) "Chat:Table #12345678"

I want to get the handle for the first window but I always get the handle of the 2nd one for some reason. I am using WinTitleMatchMode == 2.

I think I should use the [REGEXPTITLE] but I'm not sure how to get the syntax right.

Pseudo code would be:

Get handle for the window (with "Table #12345678" in the title) (that does NOT have "Chat:" in it.)

Thanks for the help,

Well according to the Help File for Opt ("WinTitleMatchMode", x):

Alters the method that is used to match window titles during search operations.

1 = Match the title from the start (default)

2 = Match any substring in the title

3 = Exact title match

4 = Advanced mode, see Window Titles & Text (Advanced)

-1 to -4 = force lower case match according to other type of match.

Does using Mode 3 not delineate between the two? It should be looking for an exact match which would count out the one with "Chat:" at the beginning?

What about using different text??

The windows must be having some text which is not in the other.. then u can easily differentiate between the two..

Exodius's method will also work.. unless u have to use mode 2 for some specific reason..

If so then use the differnt text method which i suggested..
