Hiding an object

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

My code is as follows:

$object = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")
$object_control = GUICtrlCreateObj($object, 16, 10, 240, 150)

Simple, right? Well, I don't want to see my embedded IE window! I want to automate a few web tasks, without having to actually see the browser do it. Is this possible? I've looked in the helpfile for options in GUICtrlCreateObj(), but couldn't find anything useful. Thanks for your time!

GuiSetState(@SW_HIDE, $log) ???

but i am not sure in Obj :) for Inputs i used Guidelete :)

I don't ever need it to be displayed, so deleting it would be pointless. I'd like it to just not show up in the first place, but if I create the object (without making it show up in my GUI), then it shoots me this error:

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (316) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$o_object.navigate($s_Url)
$o_object.navigate($s_Url)^ ERROR
>Exit code: 1    Time: 0.340

And uhh.. GUISetState() controls the entire GUI, not solely one object inside of it. Thanks anyway. Any other suggestions?

Here's the full code, as of now:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <UnixTime.au3>
#Include <Constants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#RequireAdmin
#NoTrayIcon
Opt("TrayMenuMode",1)

_IELoadWaitTimeout (30000)
$text = 'Ready'
$progressbar = 0



$GUI = GUICreate("PureStatus - PureAdds.com", 528, 210)
$object = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")
$log = GUICtrlCreateObj($object, 16, 10, 240, 150, 0x0800)
$start_stop_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 264, 10, 240, 30)
$accounts_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Accounts", 264, 50, 240, 30)
$statuses_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Statuses", 264, 90, 240, 30)
$settings_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Settings", 264, 130, 240, 30)
$progress = GuiCtrlCreateProgress(16, 170, 496, 30)
GuiCtrlSetData($progress, $progressbar)
_IENavigate($object, "http://google.com")

GUISetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
        
    EndSelect
WEnd

I don't ever need it to be displayed,...

If you don't ever need it to be displayed then why create it where it will be displayed?

$log = GUICtrlCreateObj($object, 500, 10, 240, 150)

That makes sense. Any reason why this wouldn't work?

GUICtrlCreateObj($object, -1, -1, 1, 1)

Global $arr[2]

$arr[0]="hip"
$arr[1]="hip"

-1 implies default value. What's the default place to display controls in a window?

Nowhere!
