WndStyles Property

Applies to TestComplete 15.0, last modified on October 19, 2021

Description

This property returns a combination of Win32 API constants (WS_CAPTION, WS_BORDER, etc.) that define the window style. These constants are specified in the dwStyles parameter of the CreateWindowEx function (Windows API).

Using the WndStyles property you can determine which styles a window has.

For a full list of Win32 API constants for window styles and their hexadecimal values, see the Window Styles article in MSDN.

Declaration

Property Value

An integer value that represents a combination of window styles.

Example

The following example shows how you can use the WndStyles property to determine if a window is maximized or minimized.

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
  {
    WshShell.Run("notepad");
    var wndNotepad = Sys.Process("notepad").Window("Notepad");
    wndNotepad.Maximize();

    Log.Message("Notepad window is maximized: " + IsMaximized(wndNotepad));
    Log.Message("Notepad window is minimized: " + IsMinimized(wndNotepad));
  }

// Returns True if the specified Window is maximized; otherwise False.
function IsMaximized(Window)
  {
    var WS_MAXIMIZED = 0x01000000;
    // Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the maximized window
    return (Window.WndStyles & WS_MAXIMIZED) == WS_MAXIMIZED;
  }

// Returns True if the specified Window is minimized; otherwise False.
function IsMinimized(Window)
  {
    var WS_MINIMIZED = 0x20000000;
    // Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the minimized window
    return (Window.WndStyles & WS_MINIMIZED) == WS_MINIMIZED;
  }

Python

def Test():
   WshShell.Run("notepad")
   wndNotepad = Sys.Process("notepad").Window("Notepad")
   wndNotepad.Maximize()

   Log.Message("Notepad window is maximized: " + str(IsMaximized(wndNotepad)))
   Log.Message("Notepad window is minimized: " + str(IsMinimized(wndNotepad)))

# Returns True if the specified Window is maximized; otherwise False.
def IsMaximized(Window):
   WS_MAXIMIZED = 0x01000000
   # Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the maximized window
   return (Window.WndStyles & WS_MAXIMIZED) == WS_MAXIMIZED

# Returns True if the specified Window is minimized; otherwise False.
def IsMinimized(Window):
   WS_MINIMIZED = 0x20000000
   # Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the minimized window
   return (Window.WndStyles & WS_MINIMIZED) == WS_MINIMIZED

VBScript

Sub Test
    Call WshShell.Run("notepad")

    Dim wndNotepad
    Set wndNotepad = Sys.Process("notepad").Window("Notepad")
    wndNotepad.Maximize

    Call Log.Message("Notepad window is maximized: " & IsMaximized(wndNotepad))
    Call Log.Message("Notepad window is minimized: " & IsMinimized(wndNotepad))
End Sub

' Returns True if the specified Window is maximized; otherwise False.
Function IsMaximized(Window)
    Dim WS_MAXIMIZED
    WS_MAXIMIZED = &H01000000
    ' Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the maximized window
    IsMaximized = ((Window.WndStyles And WS_MAXIMIZED) = WS_MAXIMIZED)
End Function

' Returns True if the specified Window is minimized; otherwise False.
Function IsMinimized(Window)
    Dim WS_MINIMIZED
    WS_MINIMIZED = &H20000000
    ' Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the minimized window
    IsMinimized = ((Window.WndStyles And WS_MINIMIZED) = WS_MINIMIZED)
End Function

DelphiScript

// Returns True if the specified Window is maximized; otherwise False.
function IsMaximized(Window);
var WS_MAXIMIZED;
begin
    WS_MAXIMIZED := $01000000;
    // Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the maximized window
    Result := ((Window.WndStyles and WS_MAXIMIZED) = WS_MAXIMIZED);
end;

// Returns True if the specified Window is minimized; otherwise False.
function IsMinimized(Window);
var WS_MINIMIZED;
begin
    WS_MINIMIZED := $20000000;
    // Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the minimized window
    Result := ((Window.WndStyles and WS_MINIMIZED) = WS_MINIMIZED);
end;

procedure Test;
var wndNotepad;
begin
    WshShell.Run('notepad');

    wndNotepad := Sys.Process('notepad').Window('Notepad');
    wndNotepad.Maximize;

    Log.Message('Notepad window is maximized: ' + VarToStr(IsMaximized(wndNotepad)));
    Log.Message('Notepad window is minimized: ' + VarToStr(IsMinimized(wndNotepad)));
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
  {
    WshShell["Run"]("notepad");

    var wndNotepad = Sys["Process"]("notepad")["Window"]("Notepad");
    wndNotepad["Maximize"]();

    Log["Message"]("Notepad window is maximized: " + IsMaximized(wndNotepad));
    Log["Message"]("Notepad window is minimized: " + IsMinimized(wndNotepad));
  }

// Returns True if the specified Window is maximized; otherwise False.
function IsMaximized(Window)
  {
    var WS_MAXIMIZED = 0x01000000;
    // Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the maximized window
    return (Window["WndStyles"] & WS_MAXIMIZED) == WS_MAXIMIZED;
  }

// Returns True if the specified Window is minimized; otherwise False.
function IsMinimized(Window)
  {
    var WS_MINIMIZED = 0x20000000;
    // Declaring the WinAPI hexadecimal value for the minimized window
    return (Window["WndStyles"] & WS_MINIMIZED) == WS_MINIMIZED;
