GUISetStyle $WS_EX_APPWINDOW on the fly?

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello everyone,

I've made an option in of my scripts so that I can choose whether the window will appear in the taskbar or not. The problem is that setting the style doesn't seem to do anything. You have to actually create the GUI with that style for it to work and delete and create it again every time. Check the examples below:

Any idea how this can be done without having to delete the GUI?

This doesn't work:

Although the style does change on the fly, the taskbar icon doesn't disappear as it should for the selected style.

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

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $Gui, $style = 1

GUI()


Func GUI()
$Gui = GUICreate("TEST", 300, 150, Default, Default, -1, $WS_EX_APPWINDOW)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("style", 100, 10, 50, 30)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($button, "test")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc

Func test()
If $style = 1 Then
     GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $Gui)
     $style = 0
Else
     GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_APPWINDOW, $Gui)
     $style = 1
EndIf
EndFunc

While 1
Sleep(100)
WEnd

This works but isn't ideal:

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

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $Gui, $style = 1

GUI()


Func GUI()
If $style = 1 Then
$Gui = GUICreate("TEST", 300, 150, Default, Default, -1, $WS_EX_APPWINDOW)
Else
$Gui = GUICreate("TEST", 300, 150, Default, Default, -1, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
EndIf
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("style", 100, 10, 50, 30)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($button, "test")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc

Func test()
If $style = 1 Then
GUIDelete($Gui)
$style = 0
GUI()
Else
GUIDelete($Gui)
$style = 1
GUI()
EndIf
EndFunc

While 1
Sleep(100)
WEnd

LoL

Actually this seems to work:

If anyone has a better way to do this, please let me know :)

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

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $Gui, $style = 1

GUI()


Func GUI()
    $Gui = GUICreate("TEST", 300, 150, Default, Default, -1, $WS_EX_APPWINDOW)
    $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("style", 100, 10, 50, 30)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($button, "test")
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
EndFunc

Func test()
    If $style = 1 Then
        GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $Gui)
        GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $Gui)
        GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Gui)
        $style = 0
    Else
        GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $Gui)
        GUISetStyle(-1, $WS_EX_APPWINDOW, $Gui)
        GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Gui)
        $style = 1
    EndIf
EndFunc

While 1
   Sleep(100)
WEnd

That would be the way I would do it.
