Wierd Outlook Express Thing

1 post in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

At first I was thinking that there was a bug or something wrong with tittle match mode on WinME, but it works fine.

Here is why I was having issues:

Open up Outlook Express.

then run this script:

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2);2 = Match any substring in the title
winactivate("Express")

Outlook wasn't comming into focus. It was strange, so I checked other versions and kept having the same behavior.

Run it on a WinXP machine and hold down Alt and hit Tab and you will see that there is a new invisable program called Outlook Express FolderSync Window Class.

Not really a bug or anything to get conserned about, but I thought it was interesting, and if you see a bug report about WinTitleMatchMode not working, this might be why.

On winME it is called OutlookExpressHiddenWindow

Just thought it was wierd.

Easy to just add text to make it bypass the invisable window.

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2);2 = Match any substring in the title
winactivate("Express","Folder")
