WinSetState and identifying the window to set..?

3 posts in this topic

I've written a little experimental program, using 2 shortcuts, to manage a relay.

The shortcuts are:

C:\USB-relæ\USBRelay\USBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#1 ( = 'ON')

C:\USB-relæ\USBRelay\USBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#0 ( = 'OFF')

The script (the compiled .exe) is doing what it is supposed to do, using the

Run ("C:\USB-relæ\USBRelay\USBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#1")

to turn the relay on - but I keep getting a window, which I cannot "get a grip on", almost all over my monitor, which I find absolutely annoying..!

What can I do, in order to force this window to "disappear"..?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Change the run line to:

Run ("C:USB-relæUSBRelayUSBRelay.exe -c:8 -r:1#1", "", @SW_HIDE)

This will hide the window when it's run.

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.

      Create a browser window and maximize it
      By computergroove
      #include <IE.au3> _IECreate("www.google.com") Sleep(5000) WinSetState("Google - Internet Explorer","",@SW_MAXIMIZE)The browser window opens and it goes to google.com but it will not maximize. I have also tried:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $Browser = _IECreate("www.google.com") Sleep(5000) WinSetState($Browser,"",@SW_MAXIMIZE)Also doesn't work. I'm running windows 8.1 x64 and internet explorer 11.0.9600.16384. Help!

      WinSetState not working (but think its the programs fault)
      By badapple89
      Hi guys,
      I have a program that when minimised to task-bar an using WinGetState returns 37. Maximised, enabled and exists?
      Using WinSetState ("[CLASS:TfrmDesktop]", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) returns 39. Maximised, enabled and exists and visible?
      But will not maximise the window.
      However 39 is what it normally is  when maximised and using the program
      Just using @SW_RESTORE = 7 but does not open window (obviously)
      and using @SW_RESTORE then  @SW_MAXIMIZE = 39 but then cant minimize.
      and using @SW_RESTORE then  @SW_MAXIMIZE then @SW_ENABLE = 39 but then cant minimize.
      Tried this and nothing WinMove("[CLASS:TfrmDesktop]",0,0,@Desktopwidth, @DesktopHeight)
      Really strange as not sure what else to try.
      Thanks guys
