Dynamically rename Chrome window title for extra "safety"

Post by Grovkillen » Sun Apr 18, 2021 7:42 am

If you want to be sure you're focusing on the specific window you can use this little trick. The Wait>1 is added because Windows needs a bit of a head start to update the window title internally.

Code: Select all

  ChromeExecute>SessionID,document.title = "%SessionID%%RND_SEED%";
  ChromeGetInfo>SessionID,title,CURRENT_TITLE
  Wait>1
  SetFocus>CURRENT_TITLE
  ResizeWindow>CURRENT_TITLE,200,200
I'm mostly using the --app= switch and thus not needing to care about the "Google Chrome" text in the window title. You may need to add the SetFocus>%CURRENT_TITLE%* (star).
Let>ME=%Script%

Running: 15.0.19b
