Embedding Autoit with IE

Recommended Posts

Ok Embedding isn't the right word...

But I'd like to make a toolbar style autoit that's tied to I.E. Always on top of the IE window, unobtrusive, and tied to whatever state IE is in....open, closed, minimized, resized...the works. Anyway to do this?

Initially i was thinking of having the gui come up in hidden mode under a do loop until IE was opened then set its state to show...but :) Not quite sure if A) that would work or :D it's the most effective solution or not.

What I would recomend is you have a script that waits for a IE window to open (so it would always be running) and it could then run your toolbar script or you could have it just unhide your toolbar in the active window. The toolbar would only be visible in one window... (That is how I would do it). But if you gave each one a seperat GUI title (based on time maybe) you could possibly make it have a toolbar for each window instead of having the toolbar active if the window is.

Let me know if this helps at all.
