Attach to Window

Jan 15, 2010 at 12:12 AM

Hi All,

I can use the following code to attach 'NotePad'.

Window window = application.GetWindow("Untitled - Notepad", InitializeOption.NoCache);


However, when I try to attach to other windows app like (MSN), it doesnt work. It gives me "Couldn't find window with title Windows Live Messenger in process 3320, after waiting for 5000 ms"


What's the reason? How can I attach to these windows?

you cannot find all windows from same application object. you would have to create an application object specific to the window you are trying to get.

Thanks for your reply. 

I can attach to "notePad", MSN(Win32Window).

However, I still cannot attach to the application I wrote in Visual Studio C#.

I tried the following codes, they dont work.


 Window window = application.GetWindow("TestApp", White.Core.Factory.InitializeOption.NoCache);

Window window = (White.Core.UIItems.WindowItems.Win32Window)application.GetWindow("TestApp", White.Core.Factory.InitializeOption.NoCache);
