About This File

This is @Yashied's most excellent control viewer, modified by me, based on the code @boomingranny posted.

There are 2 forum entries, one shows active and the other depreciated, and not seen @Yashied for 2 years, so I feel is OK to post this, tho, i'd take it down upon request.

What's New in Version 0.2018.12.26


bug fixed: would crash if "UIA highlight" enabled when unavailable
change tray items handling
added timestamp, to capture and report

What's New in Version 0.2018.12.22
bug fixed: negative values would be wrong when saved to ini
added green icon for "Extras" TAB if Emergency HotKey enabled
added/adapted UIA Spy from https://github.com/jvanegmond/au3_uiautomation
circa 2015 ( added just for the Screenshot to show more detail,
there are newer tools dedicated to this approach )
be aware that enabling "UI Automation" investigation
may crash some executables, SciTE is one.

What's New in Version 0.2018.12.19
added "Save to INI" instead of registry ( if "CV.ini" is found in the same folder, it will save there )
changed "Controls" listview headers, to auto-resize
changed hotkey from Ctrl+Alt+Shift+"Pause" to "Break" ( should be the same on your keyboard )
added an option to do ProcessClose(PID) right after WinClose(PID) repeatedly failed.
added an option to do ProcessClose(AutoIt*.exe) if all prior exit techniques failed
changed emergency hotkey's extra key, to be user declared ( in registry or CV.ini )

What's New in Version 0.2018.12.18
added "/Tray" command line to start on the tray area ( but does not auto-enable HotKeys for emergency )
added a flag for when is in tray to save CPU cycles ( went from 0.03 to 0.01, not THAT important )
changed the GUI resize behaviour ( use "/Reset" command line to force it's default position )
added an auto-reset GUI position, in case of changed monitor(s) resolution, on start and restore from tray
fixed the frame transparency not changing on the fly
added "Visible Text" to Window TAB
changed the "Text" in Control TAB to show multi-line
changed F5 key to refresh the AutoIt TAB, even if not focused on the listview

What's New in Version 0.2018.12.17
Corrected minor stuff and added options to the context menu

What's New in Version 0.2018.12.16
..just realized that there was a boo-boo in my code.
Changed TrayIcon $TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYDOUBLE to $TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYUP . as the DClick is on 2nd press and not the 2nd release, so the easiest fix it to just 1 click on the way up.
Added a notification for when the script is loaded again while hidden and on the tray, to restore itself and behave as expected.
