Getting a taskbar program to run

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. New to autoit scripting.

I need to make a script that runs a program and then fills in some details for the user.

But, the program that runs auto starts minimized in the taskbar. So, I tell the script to run the program and now there is an icon in the taskbar. Is there a way to get that program to pull up now? There is no option in the actual program itself to not run minimized, I guess the makers didn't include it.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

#Include <Array.au3>
#Include <WinAPIEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Global $Data = _WinAPI_EnumProcessWindows(ProcessExists('SciTE.exe')) ;enter the PID of you process

If IsArray($Data) Then
    _ArrayDisplay($Data, '_WinAPI_EnumProcessWindows')

;Activate the Window
WinActivate( $Data[1][0], '' )


My code:

@JohnOne - I have to right click on the icon in the taskbar, then click Show in the menu that pops up.

@PhoenixXL - Thank you. I'll give that a try today.
