Python – Obtain Active window using Python

active-windowpython

I would like to get the active window on the screen using python.

For example, the management interface of the router where you enter the username and password as admin

That admin interface is what I want to capture using python to automate the entry of username and password.

What imports would I require in order to do this?

Best Solution

On windows, you can use the python for windows extensions (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/):

from win32gui import GetWindowText, GetForegroundWindow
print GetWindowText(GetForegroundWindow())

Below code is for python 3:

from win32gui import GetWindowText, GetForegroundWindow
print(GetWindowText(GetForegroundWindow()))
