Question about Minimizing using AutoIt

Recommended Posts

Bi0haZarD

ok, I want to make a script that auto connectes and Minimizes Ventrilo so that i can add ventrilo to my startup.

For those that haven't used Ventrilo. there is an option to minimize it to the system tray. but when i use my script it puts it down in the taskbar.

taskbar = where normal apps go when you minimize

system tray = small icons by the clock

(just to clear that up)

now.. if i manually hit the minimize button in ventrilo it goes to the system tray. if i use WinSetState then it goes down to the taskbar.

heres my script, yes i know its small and rely's on sending "{space}" to connect. but can't remeber the command off my head to send a certain button lol.

Run("C:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventrilo.exe")
sleep(200)
Send("{Space}")
sleep(200)
WinSetState("Ventrilo", "",@SW_Minimize)

Kind of clumsy but might this do this job? --

send("!{SPACE}n")

That's odd because all it does is select Minimise from the system menu, which should be equivalent to hitting the Minimise button on the other side.

Is there a button within the window itself that would tray minimise the window?

Edit: Problem solved!
