No icon in Alt+TAB window & WinGetCaretPos()

5 posts in this topic

Although I've compiled my script with an icon, it won't show when pressing ALT+TAB to switch tasks. Is there a way to make my script's icon visible there? Instead I get the general application icon (tiny blank window).

Sencond question: When using WinGetCaretPos(), the position doesn't seem to be got correctly within Word (XP). I've got no problem in Notepad, so that's why I think this may be a bug... ? In Word, if I use the func to place a tooltip, it'll pop up on the top left corner, just over the File command, not next to the insertion point.

Cheers,

Guillermo

1: Does your script have a Gui?

2: In Microsoft Word, the text editing control is a rich text control instead of an edit control. Therefore, WinGetCaretPos() was not designed to handle it.


Who else would I be?

No, it's a simple script with no GUI.

The help files warns about "Multiple Document Interface (MDI)", so I guess that's to do with Word aswell. Let's hope the next release of AutoIt will handle this more satisactorily.

Yep, that's it.

About the icons in the TaskSwitch bar, it turns out that sometimes they're displayed, sometimes they aren't. I don't know much about creating icons, but maybe it depends on the way they were created... ?

Just for the records.
