Control Show/Hide Problems

2 posts in this topic

ControlHide('', 'Running Applications', '')
ControlHide('', 'Start', 304)
ControlHide('', '', 303)
ControlHide('', 'Notificiation Area', '')
ControlHide('', ':', '303')

Okay my first confussion is that the 'Clock' control and the box control surrounding the clock and quick links bar are the same. Can't only one controlid exist? On top of that when I do this it hides the taskbar nicely. But when I try to use ControlShow on the exact same thing it doens't work. Nothing happens. On the other hand when I use it on say window titled Program Manager with no control ID it works fine. What gives?


I AM ORCA!! A VERY POWERFUL WHALE!!!

might want to play with this too:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)   ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 
ControlHide("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","",40965)

as far as after you hide it you can't turn it back on, might try this:

Opt("WinDetectHiddenText", 1) ;0=don't detect, 1=do detect

getting late and my brain is fuzzy though, might not be what you were talking about.
