QuestionHow to get Windows explorer’s position using C#? Pin
srikrishnathanthri15-Aug-16 22:10

Hello,
I am developing an application which triggers when there is a windows explorer window in foreground. My application triggers a window (form) which will be placed on screen near the opened windows explorer (Planning to keep it just below the search option).
I am not opening the windows explorer in my code, instead user will open windows explorer and I will trigger my application whenever there is a windows explorer in foreground.
Here is my code,
C#
using Microsoft.VisualBasic;
using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Data;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Text;

public class Form1
{

	private void Form1_Load(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	{
		Timer1.Interval = 100;
		// timer to watch for foreground windows
		Timer1.Start();
	}

	private void Timer1_Tick(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	{
		dynamic hWnd = GetForegroundWindow();
		// get window handle of foreground window
		// a Win7 explorer window is in foreground.
		if (ClassName(hWnd) == "CabinetWClass") {
			Timer1.Stop();
			// stop this timer!
			using (Form2 f2 = new Form2()) {
				// show a popup window 
				f2.ShowDialog();
			}
		}
	}

	#region "API"
	[DllImport("user32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
	private static extern Int32 GetClassName(System.IntPtr hWnd, System.Text.StringBuilder lpClassName, Int32 nMaxCount);

	[DllImport("user32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
	private static extern IntPtr GetForegroundWindow();

	private string ClassName(IntPtr hWnd)
	{
		StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(256);
		GetClassName(hWnd, sb, 256);
		return sb.ToString;
	}
	public Form1()
	{
		Load += Form1_Load;
	}
	#endregion

}

But I am not getting anything to get the window position of foreground "windows explorer" window.

Is there any way to read the position of current foreground “Windows Explorer” window using .net?
