Window Selection Mode

Use Window Parameters. In this case it is necessary to specify parameters of a required window: Window Caption, Window Class, compliance mode, etc. (see the description below).
Use Window Handle. In this case it is necessary to specify a Window Handle. Handle is a number, an identifier of a window. It can be got, for example, in the action “Window loop”. The Window Handle uniquely identifies the window in a system, so the rest of window parameters have no sense.
Use Current Window. In this case a current active window is used. For example, if the necessary window was activated in the previous actions of a task, there is no need to specify window parameters again. Just use the current active window.

 

Use Window parameters

 

Window Caption.

If you want to search for a window by means of its caption, switch on this checkbox and input the expected window caption. You can input only part of the caption. In this case the action will check availability of the input part in the window caption.

 

Caption Must Match Exactly.

If you need the exact coincidence of a window caption, switch on this checkbox.

 

Window Class.

If you want to search the window by a window class, switch on this checkbox and input the expected name of the window class. You can input only part of the name. In this case the action will check availability of the input line in the name of the window class.

 

Class Name Must Match Exactly.

If you need the exact coincidence of a window class, switch on this checkbox. Usually it is worthwhile to search by the whole class name, because a window class is permanent and does not change its value during the "life" of the window, unlike a caption.

 

Select Window on the Screen.

Meanwhile, you can use the mouse to perform some actions. To select the necessary window, press Ctrl. To cancel - press Esc. When selecting a window, the fields Window Caption and Window Class are filled in automatically.
