GUI over current window like MsgBox handled to a GUI

Recommended Posts



I have a popup like GUI which displays a wait message, to make it shows I only change transparency of it.

It works for the main GUI, but the childs of the main GUI, my popup window appears behind...

Here is the popup window :

$GUI_Wait = GUICreate("", 250, 37, -1, -1, $WS_CAPTION, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $GUI)

WinSetTrans($GUI_Wait, "", 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI_Wait)

Func _GUIWait_SHOW()
    GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $GUI)
    WinSetTrans($GUI_Wait, "", 255)
EndFunc   ;==>_GUIWait_SHOW

Func _GUIWait_HIDE()
    WinSetTrans($GUI_Wait, "", 0)
    If Not WinActive($GUI) Then WinActivate($GUI)
    GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $GUI)
EndFunc   ;==>_GUIWait_HIDE

But it's not very good... what I want is a kind of MsgBox which when is shown, you can't click on other guis and the popup window is always over guis and not over all windows like topmost style

MsgBox(64, "", "", 0, $GUI)

Br, FireFox.

When you call your pop up window, you can always hide the other GUI windows. Or at the very least disable them and set the focus to your pop up window.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
