Can you see if the GUI is currently minimized to tray?

Recommended Posts


Aye guys, I have an If Then , but I want to know if the GUI is currently minimize to tray or not. There is no GUIGetState, so.. maybe something else?

        If BitAnd(GUICtrlRead($MooLa),$GUI_CHECKED) = True Then
         TrayTip('Amount : ',_GUICtrlStatusBar_GetText($StatusBar1,1),10000)

I would use ProcessExists to confirm that the app is still running, then use WinGetState to check on the state of the GUI. If the process is running , but WinGetState fails to find any trace of the GUI, then the GUI can only be in the tray.

That works for me - give it a go and see if it does for you. ;)
