This has to be so simple but I cant quite figure out how to do it.
This function generates a Dynamic Array with a Key - which is the
Windows Window ID and the Value which is the name of the window. How can
I parse the array for the Window Name and extract the Key Value to pass
to a Windows API Sendmessage call to the particular window.
Surely there is some way easy way to search the array, short of dealing
with it item by item, to find a specific Window Name and the
corresponding Key which is the internal Windows ID. So lets say I want
to find the window called, in the values, for example "Untitled -
NotePad" and its associated Windows ID. In my case there will only be
one window at a time open with the correct value whereas of course could
be several NotePad windows open at one time.
There is a function called indexOf ( const value AnyType ) LongInt but
that does not work to locate a value which is the Windows Window
Destripter - in text - and then return the Key.
I can stick the array in a table and then do a locate but I would really
like to do the process entirely from the Dynamic Array but cant figure
