Hi there. I wrote a simple script that sends string that was passed as a parameter to the softphone dialer. The problem is the program is almost always will be minimized to tray and script stops until it is restored. I tried using WinSetState but was unsuccessful. Any help is appreciated, the snippet is below:

Local Const $title = "Phone"
Local Const $soft = @ProgramFilesDir & "\Phone\Phone.exe"
Local $number = $CmdLine[1]

$number = StringReplace($number, "/", "") ;strip unneded characters
$number = StringReplace($number, "dial:", "")

If WinExists($title) == 0 Then
Run($soft, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

;I tried using fance method, but decided to at least raise it somehow

;Local $state = WinGetState($title, "")
;If BitAND($state, 16) Then ;if it is
; WinSetState($title, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

WinSetState($title, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) ;doesn't do the trick, and neither do RESTORE or SHOW

ControlSend($title, "", "Edit1", $number)
ControlSend($title, "", "Edit1", "{ENTER}")

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. ;)

I have used this code to rightclick on tray items to get to their menu - I have found that Send("{UP}/{DOWN}{ENTER}") works well from then on if you add a Sleep(100) between multiple commands to allow them time to have effect: :)

#Include <GuiToolBar.au3>

Global $hSysTray_Handle, $iSysTray_ButtonNumber

Global $sToolTipTitle = "" ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Enter some tooltip text for the icon you want here

$iSysTray_ButtonNumber = Get_SysTray_Index($sToolTipTitle)

If $iSysTray_ButtonNumber = 0 Then
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "Icon not found in system tray")
    _GUICtrlToolbar_ClickButton($hSysTray_Handle, $iSysTray_ButtonNumber, "right")



Func Get_SysTray_Index($sToolTipTitle)

    ; Find systray handle
    $hSysTray_Handle = ControlGetHandle('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[Class:ToolbarWindow32;Instance:1]')
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(16, "Error", "System tray not found")

    ; Get systray item count
    Local $iSysTray_ButCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hSysTray_Handle)
    If $iSysTray_ButCount = 0 Then
        MsgBox(16, "Error", "No items found in system tray")

    ; Look for wanted tooltip
    For $iSysTray_ButtonNumber = 0 To $iSysTray_ButCount - 1
        If StringInStr(_GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hSysTray_Handle, $iSysTray_ButtonNumber), $sToolTipTitle) <> 0 Then ExitLoop

    If $iSysTray_ButtonNumber = $iSysTray_ButCount Then
        Return 0 ; Not found
        Return $iSysTray_ButtonNumber ; Found


I hope that helps - ask again if not. :)
