Script to support PlexApp's webkit window

Recommended Posts

AltTab

Hello this has been my first time using AutoIt and the first sript i have wrote. I'm at a good point at the code where it works as i need it but I had some questions on how to use something like GUIRegisterMsg "_WM_SIZE"  with GUIGetMsg, so i can use that to detect the window movement or resize without having to loop like I am with this code. What it is doing is fixing an issue where the hulu plugin through plex cannot read the video unless the window is at max size, so i keep it at max size and pushed off screen and will always restore the window if you display the desktop or minimize the window. The next thing i may want to add is some way to read the raw html being sent to the webkit window that or reading the screen. But I want to try to optimize the code as much as i can right now before i add additional features.

Local $maxsize, $size, $state
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ;match partial title
If WinExists("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]") > 0 Then
   WinSetState("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
   sleep(500)
   $maxsize = WinGetPos("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]")
   ;easy way to get the max size then move the webkit window offscreen
   WinSetState("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]", "",@SW_RESTORE)
   WinMove("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]","",@DesktopWidth,0,$maxsize[2],$maxsize[3])
   WinSetState("WebKitWorkaround.exe", "", @SW_HIDE)
EndIf
While WinExists("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]") > 0 
   $size = WinGetPos("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]")
   $state = WinGetState("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]")
   ;ConsoleWrite($state & chr(13) & chr(10)& chr(13) & chr(10) & $size[0] & " " & $size[1] & " " & $size[2] & " " & $size[3] & chr(13) & chr(10))
   IF $state = 23 Then
      ;state 23 is when the window is minimzed and video will either stop or never start
      WinSetState("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]", "",@SW_RESTORE)
      WinMove("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]","",@DesktopWidth,0,$maxsize[2],$maxsize[3])
   EndIf
   If $maxsize[2] <> $size[2] Or $maxsize[3] <> $size[3]  Then
     ;this will move the WebKit window offscreen and resize to max size
      WinMove("[CLASS:WebKit_Class]","",@DesktopWidth,0,$maxsize[2],$maxsize[3])
   EndIf
   Sleep(1500)
WEnd
Exit

In my signature there's a link to a demo I posted that shows how to do just that.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I didnt see a way in the demos to get windowsmessages from a Title or Class like "[CLASS:WebKit_Class]", only GUI windows created through AU3. This is what I am looking to do.

Totally misread that, search on the forum for WM_COPYDATA which should do what you need.

I've found this '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> but I would need a more of an example to understand how i could use WM_COPYDATA, the included example doesnt make sense.

Like how would it look to use WM_COPYDATA with notepad?
