I can't get my head around this (refresh windows explorer )

Recommended Posts

GeekIT

this script works fine for the desktop, but if i open e.g. the folder "c:" and i click a button, i still don't see changes, nothing refreshes until i hit F5.

its a small tool for my dad to quickly show or hide hidden files with a button in a gui...

for some reason the F5 key (with sendkeys) doesn't work so 'sendkeys("F5")' is not an option...

any help is welcome! :sweating:

Try this

Send( "{F5}" )

It works perfectly for me.

Not related, but look into _Singleton to replace your first block of code

$numberOfAppInstances = ProcessList(_ProcessGetName(@AutoItPID))
$numberOfAppInstances = $numberOfAppInstances[0][0]
If $numberOfAppInstances > 1 Then
    MsgBox(48+4096, "Exiting...", "ShowHide application already running!")
    Exit
EndIf

ow yes, read about that, it checks if another application is running but what if you run 2 apps with the same name?

that was why i used something else...

Too lazy to go through your script :), but this works for me on Win8.1. In my experience the OS version is relevant to this kind of stuff...

If RegRead("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt") Then
    RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt", "REG_DWORD", 0)
Else
    RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt", "REG_DWORD", 1)
EndIf

Local $bOld = Opt("WinSearchChildren", True)
Local $aWinListSHELLDLL_DefView = WinList("[CLASS:SHELLDLL_DefView]")
For $i = 0 To $aWinListSHELLDLL_DefView[0][0]
    DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $aWinListSHELLDLL_DefView[$i][1], "int", 0x111, "int", 28931, "int", 0)
Next
Opt("WinSearchChildren", $bOld)

_Singleton has nothing to do with the name of the script, it creates a Mutex then checks the second time the script is run to see if that mutex exists. At least that's how I remember it being described.


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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

not here, as i explained in my intro..

but tnx

I read that in your intro, But the code that I suggested is pretty much a fix to the code that you wrote. Your refresh code doesnt work for me either. Thats why I suggested you test my method.
