( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
if you mean which Win32::GUI window is the active one, you can simply track this with the Activate() events. an example:
my $activeWindow; sub Window1_Activate { $activeWindow = $Window1; } sub Window2_Activate { $activeWindow = $Window2; } sub Window3_Activate { $activeWindow = $Window3; } # and so on...
if you instead mean any window on your screen (and you don't need realtime monitoring -- which will hog your CPU), then I would do it setting up a timer object:
my $checkActive = $Window1->AddTimer( -name => "checkActive", 10 ); # note: 10 milliseconds means 100 times/second sub checkActive_Timer { $activeWindow = Win32::GUI::GetForegroundWindow(); }
hope this helps...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
