  1. Cannot find example how to locate taskbar icon coordinates or position by window handle. I want to use PixelChecksum to check only rectangle area over specified taskbar item. Please help. What I already have found and succesfully run for whole taskbar area: $taskbar = WinGetHandle("[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]") $taskbarPos = WinGetPos($taskbar) $tasklistPos = ControlGetPos($taskbar, "", "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; INSTANCE:1]")  $iOldCheckSum = PixelChecksum($taskbarPos[0] + $tasklistPos[0], $taskbarPos[1] + $tasklistPos[1], $taskbarPos[0] + $tasklistPos[2], $taskbarPos[1] + $tasklistPos[3]); I know also that I can pass window handle as parameter to PixelChecksum, but don't know how to do this with taskbar icon. Also I was able to find something similar but seems outdated: WatchWindows __ thanks in advance
  2. Hello guys. I have a little issue and I can't find any answer sadly so I'm opening this post. I created a tool with AutoIt, but sadly on Windows 8.1 I can't pin it to my taskbar, I have no idea why. If I take any other program for example Firefox, when it's started and I do a right click on the icon in the taskbar I can have a nice menu and just below "Exit window" I have an option "Pin this program to the TaskBar" (or Unpin if already clicked), but with my AutoIt script (compiled) I have only the Exit button. Do you know if there is a Windows option to add to GuiCtrlCreateGui() or anything I can do to be able to pin my program to the windows 8.1 taskbar? Thank you very much, Tim
  3. I have the following code. You can see there are $color_normal and $color_trans In my case normal is too dark . And color trans is to much violet. If you run it you will see how its looks. I want gui with listView have the same color like taskbar in windows 10. How to achieve that? #include <Date.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <GuiListBox.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListView.au3> HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate") $color_normal = "0x" & StringLeft(StringRight(RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Accent", "AccentPalette"), 24), 6) $color_trans = "0x" & StringLeft(StringRight(RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Accent", "AccentPalette"), 16), 6) $trans = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize", "EnableTransparency") ConsoleWrite("Transpart = " & $trans & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("Color normal = " & $color_normal & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("Color trans = " & $color_trans & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite(_Get_taskbar_color()); It return AARRGGBB $taskbarColor = _Get_taskbar_color() Global $gui = GUICreate("Test", 150, 58,@DesktopWidth-300,@DesktopHeight-58,$WS_POPUP,BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)) Global $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 0, 0, 150, 58,BitOR($LBS_NOTIFY,$LBS_SORT), 0) ;_GuiCtrlMakeTrans(-1,100) ; Add column _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($idListview, "Msgs", 100) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 7, 400, 0, "Segoe UI") GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x470C4F) GUICtrlSetBkColor($idListview, 0x310638) GUISetState() While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Func Terminate() Exit EndFunc Func _Get_taskbar_color() If RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize", "ColorPrevalence") Then If RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize", "EnableTransparency") Then Return "0xD9" & StringLeft(StringRight(RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Accent", "AccentPalette"), 16), 6) Else Return "0xFF" & StringLeft(StringRight(RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Accent", "AccentPalette"), 24), 6) EndIf Else If RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize", "EnableTransparency") Then Return "0xD9000000" Else Return "0xFF000000" EndIf EndIf EndFunc
  4. Hello, is it possible to use an autoit script to show a live preview from a minimized program? I searched for this and found many different little tools but none of them offered this Option so far. You may ask why someone should use this, for me it should be a live preview from different clients of a game, when minimized the game itself is not using much resources but with multiple clients running its to heavy for my rig so i try to find a way to still observe what is happening ingame on this minimized clients. Would be nice if somebody leads me into the right direction where i can / should begin with, cause i am not sure how this script should look like but maybe someone already tried this (my forum search was not successfull)? Regards
  5. HI. I was needing to add a program to Tarkbar(an easy way without using objectcreateinterface ) so I found this. So then I deduced how to add to the StartMenu while I see the shell32 in hex editor search for taskbarunpin|taskbarpin string. I found another two interesting string (startpin|startunpin) So I try out and they work too but to add to StartMenu. This is not an official way to do this, however it works. $sFileLnk parameter must be Link(.lnk) to our program. ;~ Success: True. ;~ Failure: False. Func DeleteFromTaskBar($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "taskbarunpin") EndFunc Func AddToTaskBar($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "taskbarpin") EndFunc Func AddToStartMenu($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "startpin") EndFunc Func DeleteFromStartMenu($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "startunpin") EndFunc Saludos
  6. Hi All, I wrote an app a few years ago and have revisited it to improve it, one thing I can't sort it to not show it on the taskbar, but show it in the system tray, the point of the app is to allow users easy access to info that tech support may ask, like username, pc name & IP address. I've searched the forums but not found a answer, can anyone point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance# RichE
  7. Hi all, I need to get the list of windows which are resting in taskar. That means, windows which i can toggle through ALT TAB. I use "WinList" function. But it gives me all the windows. Then i tried to filter it like this; Local $lst = WinList() Local $Row = 0 For $i = 1 To $lst[0][0] If $lst[$i][0] = "" And Not BitAND(WinGetState($lst[$i][1]), 1) Then _ArrayDelete($lst,$Row) EndIf $Row +=1 Next _ArrayDisplay($lst) But this code doesn't delete the 2nd column. I have read the help file and saw an example which deletes an entire row from a 2 dimensional array. I have used the same method but please look this image. This is what i have got.
  8. Hi, I am trying to find a way to detect if two applications are running (and visible in the GUI). One sits in the system tray (which I've got sorted) but another launches (so is easily visible as a running process) but seems to delay until showing in the GUI but the "WinExists" command seems to pick it up a few seconds before it's actually visible! The bit of script that detects the system tray app is modified from somewhere on these forums that finds the text labels from all of the tray icons... Func Get_Systray_IconText($sToolTipTitle) Local $hSysTray_Handle = ControlGetHandle('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[Class:ToolbarWindow32;Instance:1]') Local $iSystray_ButCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hSysTray_Handle) Local $iSystray_ButtonNumber For $iSystray_ButtonNumber = 0 To $iSystray_ButCount - 1 Local $sText = _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hSysTray_Handle, $iSystray_ButtonNumber) If StringInStr($sText, $sToolTipTitle) = 1 Then Return $sText EndIf Next Return SetError(1, 0, "") EndFunc So I was hoping that there was something nearly identical that detects icons in the Taskbar in a near-identical way as ProcessExists and WinExists commands seem to detect it too early and I really need to detect the time that the window is visible to the user which seems to be when it spawns it's taskbar icon. Any ideas?
  9. Hi friends, Is there any way to show a taskbar icon for a script that has no GUI? The script has a tray icon, but I like to have a taskbar icon also. Thank you, Pooja.

  11. Everytime when you start a program, its icon shows up in the taskbar, like in the picture: The 'Paint' and 'Excel' programs are running, so appears their icons in the Taskbar. If they aren't running,the taskbar is clean. How can I hide or make to dissapear the icon from another program that shows there ? I would appreciate any help !
