Question on WinGetTitle

Recommended Posts


I'm currently writing a program that needs to always get the active window title and handle. I simply have it in an infinite loop with a sleep(10) command. It works fine but I'm just wondering what resource impact it has on the computer and if using a dllcall function would be better as I need to continually call to get the information.

What about something like this?

$oldtitle = WinGetTitle ("[ACTIVE]")
While 1
    $title = WinGetTitle ("[ACTIVE]")
    If $oldtitle <> $title Then
        $oldtitle = $title
        ToolTip ($oldtitle)
        Sleep (50)
