Manage Window

Recommended Posts


Okay this small GUI I'm making is to manage different windows with the same class. I'll be able to hide and show the Window, and rename the Client field on my GUI (not renaming window title). The current things that I need assistance on is: I already got the window title, it is in this format ServerName - CharacterName How do I assign that to a variable but only taking everything after the - and the space preceding? Just "Character Name" of the window title. And then how do I display that variable in the input field. I used GuiCtrlCreatInput since I want the user to be able to change the title for their recognition only, but please advice if I should use another thing to display the window title. Thank you. I got the basic gui below.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=C:\Documents and Settings\Albert Zhen\My Documents\Autoit\GUI\Client Management.kxf
$Form1 = GUICreate("Client Management", 297, 105, 349, 340)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Client 1", 8, 8, 121, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Client 2", 8, 40, 121, 21)
$Input3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Client 3", 8, 72, 121, 21)
$Hide1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hide", 136, 8, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
$Show1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show", 216, 8, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
$Hide2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hide", 136, 40, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
$Show2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show", 216, 40, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
$Hide3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hide", 136, 72, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
$Show3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show", 216, 72, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

        ;Client 1
        Case $Hide1
            $hwnd1 = WinGetHandle("[class:CLIENT]")
            $wintitle1 = WinGetTitle($hwnd1)
            ;<<Set the title of window in the input field>>
        Case $Show1
        ;Client 2
        Case $Hide2
            $hwnd2 = WinGetHandle("[class:CLIENT]")
            $wintitle2 = WinGetTitle($hwnd2)
            ;<<Set the title of window in the input field>>
        Case $Show2
        ;Client 3
        Case $Hide3
            $hwnd3 = WinGetHandle("[class:CLIENT]")
            $wintitle3 = WinGetTitle($hwnd3)
            ;<<Set the title of window in the input field>>
        Case $Show3

Read the help file. You can use StringInStr() in conjunction with the StringLeft() or StringTrimLeft(). Whatever suites you.
