Preventing App (IE) from opening
JBeardNC posted a topic in AutoIt General Help and SupportWhen I'm updating Flash or Java for example, I am closing IE for the user beforehand and IE must remain closed as to not interfere with the install. I'd like to see if there is a (better) way to prevent them from opening IE during the middle of the update. Currently, I launch a separate process/script that simply does a While loop and every 50 ms, it checks for IE using WinExists and if it finds it, kills the process. But what ends up happening is if it closes the process at the right moment, the user will get a message that looks like a permissions error or an error like the IE shortcut doesn't exist and prompts the user to remove the shortcut and its causing some confusion. It may be because I have the 50 ms interval too small but I wanted to reach out and see if there is a better way to block an application from opening temporarily while something finishes, in this case, block IE while Java or Flash install completes. I tried using If ProcessExists and got the same results. Here's the script I'm using. Any better ideas? I just need to block IE from opening for about 30 seconds. If it has a notification (like the toast pop-up I added), that's even better but its not required. #include <toast.au3> $sMsg = "Adobe Flash is being updated on your computer." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Internet Explorer will open once the update is complete." sleep (2000) While ProcessExists ("AdobeFlashUpdate.exe") sleep(50) If WinExists ("Internet Explorer") Then WinClose ("Internet Explorer") OpenToast() EndIf WEnd Func OpenToast() _Toast_Set(5, 0xFFFF33, 0x000000, 0xCC0000, 0xFFFFFF, 10) $aRet = _Toast_Show(0, "Please wait...", $sMsg, 10, False) ;_Toast_Hide() EndFunc Run ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe") Exit
Hi, I've searched but can only find posts from people with the opposite problem (asking how to get their GUI to display on top of a full-screen app, usually a game. I've created a toolbar which I use in a work environment, creating the GUI with the following styles; $hwnd = GUICreate($title, $toolbarWidth, $height, $left, $top, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) I want it to have a TOPMOST style as it's supposed to behave like the Windows taskbar (which it does in all but one scenario). If I start a full-screen RDP session, I can still see my toolbar and have to close it. Is there a way I can make it appear on top of all windows *except* full-screen apps (in the same way the taskbar allows full-screen apps on top of it)? Thanks in advance. Val.
Prevent listview column resize
Mikeman27294 posted a topic in AutoIt GUI Help and SupportHey guys, I have a column in a listview which is meant to be hidden but not deleted. The reason for this, is because the listview will hold values from an inisectionread and I dont want the names of the keys to appear. Is this possible? Thanks.
