Link two windows

7 posts in this topic

I have two seperate windows (GUIs). Now i want to link them, that they both get minimized when you minimize the "main" one and get maximized when you maximize one of them. The perfect way would be that only the "main" window has a thing down on the task bar (i don't know the exact word the thing next to the windows startmenu where all the running programs are displayed. It has the clock)

You will need to monitor the window positions and states as well. This is what I do for SciTE Jump when SciTE Jump is docked to ScITE. Alt + Q in ScITE or check my signature for GPLv3 code, yes, it's open source.

If i press Alt + Q in ScITE nothing happenes. And I can't find GPLv3 in your signature. Where is it?

You need SciTE4AutoIt3 for it took work and GLPv3 is a license agreement for opensource applications. The app is called SciTE Jump, but if you install SciTE4AutoIt3 (new version) then you can use Alt + Q.

Loops, WinGetPos, WinMove. This should get you started, look in the help file for more details about these functions and good luck.

Just to let you know, the name for that thing in the task bar near the clock is the "tray" or "tray menu". Hence you can disable the Tray Icon in your AutoIt script (#NoTrayIcon) :)

      I am trying to identify the window based on the window title and text.
      The title will be the "erwin DM - filename"

      It is working till date, but some operating systems our application is displaying window as "erwin DM - [filename]"
       
      I tried  "erwin DM - *filename*" But this regular expression is not working.
      Any suggestion?
       
      $sModelFile = "C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\My Models\eMovies.erwin" $wdModel = _WinWaitActivate1("erwin DM - "&FileNameOnly($sModelFile),"") Func _WinWaitActivate1($title,$text,$timeout=0);Will Return the window Handler Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text) $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout) if not ($dHandle = 0) then If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text) return WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout) Else Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...") Exit EndIf EndFunc Func FileNameOnly($sFilePath) Local $sDrive = "", $sDir = "", $sFileName = "", $sExtension = "" Local $aPathSplit = _PathSplit($sFilePath, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension) ;_ArrayDisplay($aPathSplit, "_PathSplit of " & @ScriptFullPath) return $sFileName EndFunc

      I've made a form in Koda where I make a list of 3 user definable elements that I want to be able to replicate with a button press so a user can add data that can be used as part of the program.

Since the fields can number over 30 locations in some examples I am thinking about having these items in a scrolling window. What is the best way to do this and can auto it add a variable while running by pressing a button?

      Hi,
      I made a small blunder with my code. I created the GUI under 1920x1080 resolution however, my user is configured to ONLY 1080x720 and cannot go any further than that.
      What do you guys think is the best way to correct this one? Resolution mathematics is something that came to mind however I do not have access to his PC to check  from time to time if  my estimation is correct and the resolution on my PC doesn't go down to 1080x720.
      Please help.

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,
      Davida Crozier

      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.

      Hi everyone,
      GUICtrlSetState Function example ,i found $GUI_DROPACCEPTED isn't working in windows10 x64(windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64).
      if the example put to windows10 x86 or windows xp, the $GUI_DROPACCEPTED is effective,
      the AutoIt Edition is v3.3.14.2.
      any ideas? thanks you.
