Running application from toolbar

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am a beginner with AutoIt, so I need your help.

I searched helpfile (control description and Tray function) and googled different links about AutoIT, but I couldn't find the answer.

I need to make a simple script, which will:

1. Run program from a Window system tray (same as I would twice double-clik left mouse on the icon).

2. After that main program window will appear (to be specific LANView application), where I need to click "Start" button on the left section (see attached link to screenshot).

3. Minimize program, which returns to icon on taskbar.

Below I attach screenshot from the program overview (ommit some polish comment text on the picture)

Screen

On the screen in the the left side with blue background and buttons I have collected some usefull information with AutoIt v3 Window Info:

>>>> Window <<<<

I was thinking about use Au3recorded to capture my mouse movement+ hotkeyset, but actually It won't work as I want it,

because I need to lauch this script on 5-6 computers with different: screen resolution, taskbar icon placement etc.

So all in all the script wouldn't be accurate and working properly.

Please help me.

Hello,

I think I can help with the first and the last part. I cant get the screen shot so second part I can only speculate on.

Step 1:

WinSetState("LabView Title Here","",@SW_MAXIMIZE)

^^^^even though its not a traditional window the process is still running and you can maximize it. Just insert the title of the Labview window.

Step 2:

You will have to get the control ID (if there is one) of the start button on the labview page. if there isn't a control ID or you don't know how to get it reply.

Step 3:

WinSetState("LabView Title Here","",@SW_MINIMIZE)

*Edit: Let's all pretend I typed LanView

Thanks for your help.

Step 1 and 3

At first I figured out that WinSetState function might be good, but I've made small missspell (added one more space between arguments),

so I thought it was not working at all. Glad to know that I was wrong:)

You will have to get the control ID (if there is one) of the start button on the labview page. if there isn't a control ID or you don't know how to get it reply.

No I don't, can you explain furher so I can make it.
