Getting a win state that doesn't exist

7 posts in this topic

getWinState() is returning 13 and I don't see that listed in the documentation. What is happening is that the window is minimized, winActivate is called on it, and the window seems to register as active and still minimized. I am even able to access that windows menu functions though it's minimized.

Look in the help for WinGetState, then see if you really believe that some combination of 1,2,4,8,16 and 32 cannot be arranged to give a value of 13.

(Since you say it is minimized I assume that "13" is 0x13)

UGH!!!!! Shame on me for not reading the doc all the way through. Sorry about that and thank you.

WinGetState's states are BitAND'ed, and 8 + 4 + 1 = 13:

(from the help file)

1 = Window exists

2 = Window is visible

4 = Window is enabled

8 = Window is active

16 = Window is minimized

32 = Window is maximized

HTH,

So would getting the winstate be a bad method to find out if a window is minimized or not?

Taking a look at this would it be if the state is not 32 then it needs to be maximized somehow?>

r3dlined,

If you want to see if a particular state exists among the number that might exist, you can do this:

If BitAND(WinGetState($hHandle), $iState) = $iState Then

So to see if a window is minimised:

If BitAND(WinGetState($hHandle), 16) = 16 Then

If you look at the numeric values of the various state options and think in binary you will soon see why this works! :D

P.S. Old maths joke: There are only 10 types of mathematicians: those who understand binary and those who do not! :huggles:

Edit: Typnig!
