Maximize a minimized program window if it ever becomes minimized

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have a strange issue... we have a ticker that displays the latest info 24x7... :)

Problem is - when someone updates the ticker - it automatically minimizes itself. :D

How can I keep autoit running in the taskbar to monitor and then maximize this window / program if it's ever minimized. :oops:

This ticker shows us vital information so we need it displayed 24x7

Thanks yall! I checked your forums and couldn't find anything like this... sry if I'm being ri-donk-ulus

:rip:

souldjer777,

Something along these lines should work: :D

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX))

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Try to minimize me!", 10, 10, 400, 400)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 48)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    ; See if the GUI is minimized
    If BitAND(WinGetState($hGUI), 16) Then
        ; And maximize it if it was
        WinSetState($hGUI, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    EndIf

WEnd

Remember that if you do not have a GUI you will need a Sleep(10) in the loop in place of the GUIGetMsg so you do not max out the CPU. :oops:

While 1 ;will create an infinate loop

$state = WinGetState("your ticker window name here") ;gets the state of your ticker window

If BitAnd($state, 16) Then ;if it's minimized

WinSetState("your ticker window name here","",@SW_RESTORE) ;restore it

EndIf

Sleep(10) ;small sleep to save resources
