Look at StringInStr or StringRegExp if you need it to be more specific.

hi

if i have two windows with the same title but different text.

i want to choose the correct one.

use ControlSetText ( "title", "text","controlID")

but i only know the part of text , like "xxxx this is xxxxx"

could i type ControlSetText ( "hello", "*this is*","edit1") ?

ps: the two windows have the same title and controlID only texts are difference .

Well, there is REGEXPTITLE and REGEXPCLASS (Advanced Window Descriptions) but there is not REGEXPTEXT so I guess you'll need to use WinList('TheWindowTitle') and use WinGetText like:

Dim $avWindows = WinList('TheWindowTitle')

For $i = 1 To $avWindows[0][0]
    If StringInStr(WinGetText($avWindows[$i][1]), 'Sometext') Then
    ; Or If StringRegExp(WinGetText($avWindows[$i][1]), '.*?Text') Then...
    ; ...
    EndIf
Next
