WinGetPos

Retrieves the position and size of the specified window.

WinGetPos [, X, Y, Width, Height, WinTitle, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText]

Parameters

X, Y

The names of the variables in which to store the X and Y coordinates of the target window's upper left corner. If omitted, the corresponding values will not be stored.

Width/Height

The names of the variables in which to store the width and height of the target window. If omitted, the corresponding values will not be stored.

WinTitle

A window title or other criteria identifying the target window. See WinTitle.

WinText

If present, this parameter must be a substring from a single text element of the target window (as revealed by the included Window Spy utility). Hidden text elements are detected if DetectHiddenText is ON.

ExcludeTitle

Windows whose titles include this value will not be considered.

ExcludeText

Windows whose text include this value will not be considered.

Remarks

If no matching window is found, the output variables will be made blank.

If the WinTitle "Program Manager" is used, the command will retrieve the size of the desktop, which is usually the same as the current screen resolution.

A minimized window will still have a position and size. The values returned in this case may vary depending on OS and configuration.

To discover the name of the window and control that the mouse is currently hovering over, use MouseGetPos.

Window titles and text are case sensitive. Hidden windows are not detected unless DetectHiddenWindows has been turned on.
