Prevent GUI appearing on top of full-screen app (like RDP)

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I've searched but can only find posts from people with the opposite problem (asking how to get their GUI to display on top of a full-screen app, usually a game.

I've created a toolbar which I use in a work environment, creating the GUI with the following styles;

$hwnd = GUICreate($title, $toolbarWidth, $height, $left, $top, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST))
 
I want it to have a TOPMOST style as it's supposed to behave like the Windows taskbar (which it does in all but one scenario).
 
If I start a full-screen RDP session, I can still see my toolbar and have to close it.  Is there a way I can make it appear on top of all windows *except* full-screen apps (in the same way the taskbar allows full-screen apps on top of it)?
 
Thanks in advance.
 
Val.

I would just check if the active window fills the screen, and if it does, turn off on top of your toolbar.

I would do it like so: >link to topic.

Or you can get the handle to your toolbar and check it with WinGetState(), this will tell you if the application is maximized as well.

Thanks for your replies.  I could indeed introduce a loop to check for an active full-screen window, but I was hoping for a style constant (or combination thereof) which might do the trick and order it behind full-screen windows natively, much like the taskbar.

I'm not concerned about maximized windows as I'm using a combination of DllStructCreate and DllCall to leverage the SHAppBarMessage shell function and register my toolbar as an appbar, so its position and dimensions are respected in much the same way as the taskbar, and windows maximize up to it, not over it.

The only issue I've yet to overcome is full-screen windows.  Your suggestion is valid, I'm just hoping for something a little more elegant.

What happens if you do:

WinSetOnTop($hwnd, "", 1)

Edit:

Sorry, I misread your request.  Indeed you could use WinSetOnTop() more than likely, but you'd have to verify (In a loop) what to look for.  There's no "conditional" constant you can put in the creation of a GUI.

Would that not just set my toolbar to the topmost window, in the same way the extended styles are on creation?

EDIT: Just to test the theory, I removed the $WS_EX_TOPMOST extended-style from my GUICreate line and added your line below.  The toolbar remains on top of all windows, including full-screen windows, so the behaviour is the same.

Rgds,

Val.

Indeed it would, like I said, I misread your initial request.  But like I said, without a checking the state of the active window, you cannot manage your issue correctly.

I've no idea if this will work or not, I do not have a full screen window to popup nor do I feel the urge to create one.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $ghWnd = GUICreate("", 100, 30, 0, 0, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
WinSetState($ghWnd, "", 1)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
    _myWinOnTopIfFullSizeWin($ghWnd, False)
WEnd


Func _myWinOnTopIfFullSizeWin($hWndOnTop, $bOnTop = True)

    Local Const $iWidth = @DesktopWidth
    Local Const $iHeight = @DesktopHeight

    Local $hActive = WinActive("[ACTIVE]")
    If Not $hActive Then Return $hActive

    Local $aPos = WinGetPos($hActive)
    If Not IsArray($aPos) Then
        Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    EndIf

    Local $iOnTop = 0

    If $aPos[0] <= 0 And $aPos[1] <= 0 And _
        $aPos[2] >= $iWidth And $aPos[3] >= $iHeight Then
        ; we have a full screen window
        $iOnTop = (($bOnTop) ? 1 : 0)
        WinSetState($hWndOnTop, "", $iOnTop)
        Return $hActive
    EndIf

    ; do the opposite if we're here of $bOnTop
    $iOnTop = (($bOnTop) ? 0 : 1)
    WinSetOnTop($hWndOnTop, "", $iOnTop)

    Return $hActive
EndFunc

      Hello all,
      I've been working on 4 standalone scripts. They each have their own GUI and are now independent .exe's. But instead of having 4 separate icons on my computer, is it possible to put them all together into one .exe?
      What I want is one interface with tabs. Each script's GUI would be on their own respective tab. Is this possible?
      The different scripts don't need to communicate with one another. I just want them all in one .exe.
      I can't find this anywhere... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

      I have a workplace GUI that has a search field function that pulls up customer records to allow changes. I am attempting to 1)LOGIN 2)Enter Search field, enter a number and then {ENTER} 3)change specific field once customer record loads. I have very limited experience in GUI manipulation but I am able to login using the below:

When I "inspect element" in the Search field I get the attached:

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      Hello,
      As I was searching this forum I came along something intresting what was new to me.
      CUI/GUI hybrid.
      Whish sounds very usefull to me to compile it all into 1 script.
      So i was fideling around whit it but couldn't get it to work.
      In the real script (not this simplified version) i got a lot of functions whish i can use whan talking to it by commandline and switches.
      I could not get this to work and hope somebody could give me some pointers on how to make it work.
      Also I was hoping iff somebody could help me whit the /? function?
      (I don't know how to output the help text back to the commandline or the function that can help me do it)
      please advice and thanks in advanced.
