Macro Scheduler 15

WindowAction

WindowAction>Action,window_title

 

Use this function to restore, minimize, maximize or close a window.

 

Action can be any one of the following:

 

0: Restore the window

1: Maximize the window

2: Minimize the window

3: Close the window

 

If the WIN_USEHANDLE variable is set to 1 window_title must be a window handle.

 

Specify the window name in window_title.  The window_title may contain the * symbol at the end to indicate a substring match.

 

If the last character of the window title specified is an asterisk (*), Macro Scheduler will attempt to select the first window whose title matches the text entered exactly. If it cannot make an exact match it then looks at all windows and selects the first one it finds whose title contains the entered text (using a case-insensitive search). This solves the problem with applications such as Word or Netscape which change their titles depending on the document loaded. It is best to try to provide an exact (including case) window title to ensure the correct window is found, as many applications have multiple invisible windows with similar names.  Specifying text without a trailing asterisk will force Macro Scheduler to only look for an exact match.

 

It is possible to limit the type of windows this command affects using the WF_TYPE variable:

 Let>WF_TYPE=0 - No Child Windows

 Let>WF_TYPE=1 - ALL Windows (Default)

 Let>WF_TYPE=2 - Visible Windows Only

 Let>WF_TYPE=3 - Child Windows Only

 

A Regular Expression can be used in window_title if WIN_REGEX is set to 1.
