Child GUI Windows

3 posts in this topic

Right now I have 6 GUI windows with 5 being created like.

$GUI_POPUP1 = GUICreate("txt1", 200, 200, 1225, 810, BitOR($WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_GROUP, $WS_BORDER, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

As of right now they are all independent of each other. That being, if the main window is minimized all of the others stay open and each window has it's own item in the task bar. I would like them to be essentially tied to the main window and not have an item in the task bar. So if the main window is minimized all of the child windows minimize too. Is this possible?

Easiest way to find out is to just try it.
