I've used WinList() to give me a list of all the windows it finds on the system.
I then search through that list to find a few windows which match a title string.
Now I want to present that smaller list of Title/strings to the user, so that they can select ONE of them.
Which widget would be best for this operation? Ideally, the widget should return the index of the item selected, and if possible only allow the user to select 1 item.
I don't expect there will be more than 10 Windows running on the systems I'm working with. In all practicality, I've only seen 4 at the max.
HI. I was needing to add a program to Tarkbar(an easy way without using objectcreateinterface ) so I found this. So then I deduced how to add to the StartMenu while I see the shell32 in hex editor search for taskbarunpin|taskbarpin string. I found another two interesting string (startpin|startunpin) So I try out and they work too but to add to StartMenu.
This is not an official way to do this, however it works.
$sFileLnk parameter must be Link(.lnk) to our program.
;~ Success: True. ;~ Failure: False. Func DeleteFromTaskBar($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "taskbarunpin") EndFunc Func AddToTaskBar($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "taskbarpin") EndFunc Func AddToStartMenu($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "startpin") EndFunc Func DeleteFromStartMenu($sFileLnk) Return _WinAPI_ShellExecute($sFileLnk,"","", "startunpin") EndFunc
I have a little issue and I can't find any answer sadly so I'm opening this post.
I created a tool with AutoIt, but sadly on Windows 8.1 I can't pin it to my taskbar, I have no idea why. If I take any other program for example Firefox, when it's started and I do a right click on the icon in the taskbar I can have a nice menu and just below "Exit window" I have an option "Pin this program to the TaskBar" (or Unpin if already clicked), but with my AutoIt script (compiled) I have only the Exit button.
Do you know if there is a Windows option to add to GuiCtrlCreateGui() or anything I can do to be able to pin my program to the windows 8.1 taskbar?
Thank you very much,
I wrote an app a few years ago and have revisited it to improve it, one thing I can't sort it to not show it on the taskbar, but show it in the system tray, the point of the app is to allow users easy access to info that tech support may ask, like username, pc name & IP address.
I've searched the forums but not found a answer, can anyone point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance#
I am trying to find a way to detect if two applications are running (and visible in the GUI). One sits in the system tray (which I've got sorted) but another launches (so is easily visible as a running process) but seems to delay until showing in the GUI but the "WinExists" command seems to pick it up a few seconds before it's actually visible!
The bit of script that detects the system tray app is modified from somewhere on these forums that finds the text labels from all of the tray icons...
Func Get_Systray_IconText($sToolTipTitle) Local $hSysTray_Handle = ControlGetHandle('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[Class:ToolbarWindow32;Instance:1]') Local $iSystray_ButCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hSysTray_Handle) Local $iSystray_ButtonNumber For $iSystray_ButtonNumber = 0 To $iSystray_ButCount - 1 Local $sText = _GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hSysTray_Handle, $iSystray_ButtonNumber) If StringInStr($sText, $sToolTipTitle) = 1 Then Return $sText EndIf Next Return SetError(1, 0, "") EndFunc So I was hoping that there was something nearly identical that detects icons in the Taskbar in a near-identical way as ProcessExists and WinExists commands seem to detect it too early and I really need to detect the time that the window is visible to the user which seems to be when it spawns it's taskbar icon.
