Hide portions of a window

Recommended Posts


Is there anyone software or script out there that will hide a portion of a window? Maybe wrap an executable and hide whatever portion you would not want a person to access? I want to hide all the features of a window except for one section at the bottom. I have attached 2 pictures. 2.jpg would be one scenario I would like where it would black out a portion of the application. 3.jpg would also work if you could just "wrap" a portion of the application window and make it visible to the user.

Can this be done? Has it been done?

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :x

Take a look at the GUIExtender UDF in my sig. It allows you to open and close portions of your GUI so that you only show the parts you want at any time. Sounds like it might be close to what you need. :P

I think he is trying to do it with a non-AutoIt GUI and I'm not keen on the potential for abuse in doing that.


Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.
