_WinAPI_SetParent Makes White Box on GUI

Recommended Posts


I am sure this is something simple but I can’t get this to display without a white box at the top of the GUI.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("about:blank", 0, 0)
$IE_window_child = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")

$Form1 = GUICreate("Test", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0)
_WinAPI_SetParent($IE_window_child, $Form1)

For example to embed IE, see >here.


That example didn’t display right ether when I removed the –k switch. I removed the switch because I needed to be able to run IE with Ad Block Plus. Anyway, after some more digging around it looks like the address bar is what was causing the issue. The following code fixed the problem.

If _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "addressbar") Then _IEPropertySet($oIE, "addressbar", False)
