Hi,

I' ve to activate one window that has the same title of another window, so i decided to use

the winhandle.

After I found the handle of the window with winlist I made my script :

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
$handle = "0x0020100"
WinActivate ($handle)

but doesn't works.

Can someone help me ?

Many thanks.

You are specifying a string as handle.

How did you get the value for the handle?

I got the value before through this script :

$var = WinList()

For $i = 1 to $var[0][0]
 ; Only display visble windows that have a title
  If $var[$i][0] <> "" AND IsVisible($var[$i][1]) Then
    MsgBox(0, "Details", "Title=" & $var[$i][0] & @LF & "Handle=" & $var[$i][1])
  EndIf
Next

Func IsVisible($handle)
  If BitAnd( WinGetState($handle), 2 ) Then
    Return 1
  Else
    Return 0
  EndIf

EndFunc

I know this value change every time the window is opened but this is not important for

me because I never close it.

Why my script is not working ?

Yeah doesn't works because the exadecimal 0x0020100 is transformed in the decimal number 131328.

Any idea ?

and this?:

$handle = "0x0020100"
WinActivate (HWnd($handle))

Jos, If you run the script from above, it will give two windows with the same title, I think he is trying to "activate" the second window that is a hidden MS-OS window.

... after reading his request again, and running that program, I am sure of it!
