#289 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

Version: Severity: None

Maybe I just missed it but I can't find something like GuiSetTitle. I mean: With this function you can directly set the title of one of your own created windows using just its winhandle.

Somthing like

$winhandle1 = GuiCreate("first title")
$winhandle2 = GuiCreate("unused title")
GuiSetTitle($winhandle1, "new title")

You know what I mean?

I know WinSetTitle(). But that is not what I mean.
WinSetTitle() uses the old/current title of any window, and is therefore "title-sensitive". But I want a function with wich I can retitle a window using just its winhandle. And WinSetTitle() can do nothing wit winhandles, can it?
You see, I'm getting tired of retitling my own windows having to use (read: look up) the old/current title.
Since GUI windows usally have a handle assigned to it, it should give no major problems creating a function like this, does it not? Especially inside one of your own scripts...
Here's an example of what I mean:

$MyWindow = GuiCreate("My window")
GuiSetTitle($MyWindow, "My new title")

P.S. If enybody brings up WinGetHandle, I would like to remind him/her that there still is no function capable of using that handle, is there?

Here's a thought or three. Have you even *tried* to use the HWND in WinSetTitle()? In fact, have you even bothered to look at the documentation for WinSetTitle() or virtually any other Win* function in general? Have you bothered to read the link which explains how to specify windows? The answer to these 3 questions is clearly "no". You're about 3 years behind on learning that you can pass an HWND to Win* functions. I suggest re-reading the documentation at least once every 3 years.
