Hello. For a project of a tool, I have to launch a program. This one: Display Properties control (run desk.cpl) I have to resize it, so we can see what's necessary. I'm getting there. The problem is that there is a drop-down menu: so I want to disable it. How to do this? I already did a test with the notepad. By deactivating the "close" button. Here is the code: Run("Notepad.exe") WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]") $Hwnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Notepad]") $menu = DllCall("user32.dll","hwnd","GetSystemMenu","hwnd", $Hwnd, "int",0) DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "RemoveMenu", "hwnd", $menu , "int", 0xF060, "int", 0x0);SC_CLOSE MsgBox(0,'',1) $menu = DllCall("user32.dll","hwnd","GetSystemMenu","hwnd", $Hwnd, "int",1) DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "RemoveMenu", "hwnd", $menu , "int", 0xF060, "int", 0x0);SC_CLOSE I would like to do the same, but with the drop-down menu (with DllCall). Is it possible to disable / block (or other) the drop-down menu of a program? Thank you for your answers. Sincerely, Thomas.
Hi guys!! I'm going crazy... please help me -.- First, open the attached screenshot. Second: I'd like to grab info from external window. The program is "Metatrader4", a tool for trading and charts analysis. The function _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText() return an empty string! I tried to change the index $index (the second parameter) into Number($index), as recommended by other similar posts in this forum, but this did not solve my problem Well, why I'm going mad? Because in my mind an UDF approach works great or it does not work at all; instead, in my code something works and something else does not. I really don't understand why... and you? THXX!!!! $handle=ControlGetHandle("Expert - "&$expertname,"",1383);List: Variable|Value For $i=0 To _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($handle)-1;WORKS!!! $temp=_GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($handle,0+$i);RETURN EMPTY STRING :-( MsgBox(0, "", $temp) $temp = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($handle,$i);WORKS!!! MsgBox(0, "", $temp) Next
Hi everybody, I have troubles using the function "GUISetCursor" properly. My script generates a small GUI and opens an image in IrfanView. If the user hits the button "$p_coord" on the GUI, the GUI shall be hidden, IrfanView shall become active and the mousepointer shall turn into a cross (as long hovering over IrfanView). Once clicked into IrfanView, the cursor shall turn into a nordinary mousepointer again. Unfortunately, the cross doesn't appear until the user clicks into IrfanView manually. Then the mousepointer changes for the duration of the click into the cross. Can anybody tell why this is happening? Here is the relevant code: GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) ;the autoit gui is hidden ; Loop until the user exits: While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop Case $p_coord WinSetState("Bicon Coordinator","",@SW_HIDE) ;the autoit gui is hidden $Handle = WinActivate ( "IrfanView") ; IrfanView is activated GUISetCursor (15,1,$Handle) ;Cursor should be turned into a cross - this is what fails :-( While 1 If _IsPressed ("01", $hDLL) Then ;Once a mousclick by the user is performed... GUISetCursor (2) EndIf EndSwitch WEnd dejhost
