Show desktop message

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

is there any possible way to see of some kind of "show desktop" message is sent in Windows 7.

Whenever a user presses WIN+D or clicks on the show desktop part of the taskbar in Windows 7 a messagebox must pop-up?

Can this be done using autoit?

Thanks in Advance...

I'm still learning myself but I believe this may help with monitoring for the key press and showing a message:

HotKeySet("{LWIN}d", "ShowMessage")

and

HotKeySet("{RWIN}d", "ShowMessage")

This will cause both combos to execute the "ShowMessage" function:

Func ShowMessage()
    MsgBox(4096,"","This is a message.")
EndFunc

Edit: Added show msg function

As for monitoring for the button from what I gather you may have luck with the MouseGetPos ( [dimension] ) function while looping to monitor for a click for a specific area (the button). There are probably easier ways to accomplish this however. Hope I understood correctly ;)
