Hey there,
Im trying to make an application which can find a particular IE window, lets say with the title 'page123'. If there is an internet page with this title open, my application needs to be able to find its current co-ordinates, and the size of the window.
Aswell as this, my application needs to then be able to place itself in the SAME co-ordinates.
Anyhelp is appreciated.
Regards

Hi,

Add one TEdit and one TButton on a form, write the IE title you are looking for in the edit box and press the button:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  h: HWND;
  r: TRect;
begin
  h := FindWindow('IEFrame', PChar(Edit1.Text));
  if IsWindow(h) then begin
    if GetWindowRect(h, r) then begin
      SetWindowPos(self.Handle, HWND_TOP, r.Left, r.Top, r.Right - r.Left, r.Bottom - r.Top, SWP_SHOWWINDOW);
    end;
  end;
end;

Regards, Geo
