Top  Previous  Next

This is a loop by window elements. Sometimes it is possible to extract and analyze some information from window elements. The loop enumerates all window elements registered in the system. When every iteration, you can save the characteristics of the current element into variables:

Handle
Caption
Class

Window Parameters Mode

There are three options:

Use Window parameters - Use the Window Caption and the Window Class to look for the necessary window.

Use Window Handle - This is a search for a window by a handle. The handle can be got in the loop Window Loop, from the trigger Wait for Window or some other way.

Use current window - This is a current window in a moment of the executing of the action. This mode does not require any additional parameters.
