How to wait untill any window is created or closed

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

1)I need method to find if any new windows were created

2)I need to know if any of existing windows are closed

For my 1-st method I tried this

WinWaitActive("")
MsgBox(1,1,WinGetTitle(""))

But its not good method I suppose :)

I cant find method to register if any window is closed.

WinWaitClose("") needs to have given window title, but how to make this command works with out given window?

I actually need something looks like WinWaitCreate(<any>) and WinWaitclose(<any of opened windows>)

I need it because I want create something like taskbar where you can see currently open window names in real time.

E1M1,

This post might help you. It lists the active windows in Z-order.

By the way, the thread which contained it was on the first page of the search results for "list+windows".............. ;-)
