Hiding a window that wasn't created by AutoIt

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm running a little server that uses 4 console windows, but the windows don't "group".

Since I just do other things while the server is running in the background, I am stuck with the 4 windows consuming my precious taskbar space ...>_<

I thought that GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $Winhandle) would do, but this didn't seem to work (as shown below).

;Trying to hide a window from the taskbar

AutoItSetOption ( "WinTitleMatchMode",2 )

$Handle = WinGetHandle("Paint")
If @Error Then
MsgBox(0, "Error", "Couldn't find a handle.")
Else
MsgBox(0, "Handle", "Handle = " & $Handle)
GUiSetState(@SW_HIDE, $Handle)
EndIf

Anything that would hide the windows from the taskbar or more would be nice :(

Suggestions?

Use WinSetState() not GUISetState().
