Automatically exit popup

Recommended Posts


I have a test script that is supposed to display a radar map. Eventually this will become part of a larger script.

This widget came from widgetbox.com so I don't have that code for you. To get people to sign up for their pro package, widgetbox has put ads on their widgets. I have quickly come to the conclusion that I cannot disable the ads (mostly because I don't have the widget code and don't want to pay money for the membership).

My next thought is to just exit out of the ads whenever they come up. I have come up with two methods to do this. My first and easiest method would be to use ControlClick. For some reason, this does not seem to work, although mouseclick does work. Don't know the reason there. The other way I could think of was to use _IEHeadInsertEventScript. I don't know javascript, but this seems like the better and cleaner way of closing out of the ads as they pop up.

Is it possible to use _IEHeadInsertEventScript to solve this? If not, why isn't ControlClick closing out of the ad when the position is correct?

$GUI = GUICreate("Local Radar", 641, 539, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))

$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()

Do they always have the same title when they popup? You could just check if that window title exists, and if it does, do a WinClose() on it.

unless I'm missing something, which is entirely possible ;) I'm just not that good at the _IE functions, so I'm looking for another possability :evil:
