Hiding a small gui while main stuff is running?

3 posts in this topic

Got a script that removes tempfiles etc and it has a choice gui at start for local or offline drives

The choice is done like this

Func _GuiChoice()
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Drive Choice", 150, 100, -1, -1, BitXOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX))
    Local $Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Local Machine', 15, 15, 120, 30)
    GUICtrlSetState($Button_1, $GUI_FOCUS)
    _Font9()
    Local $Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton('Offline Machine', 15, 55, 120, 30)
    _Font9()

    GUISetState()
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit
            Case $Button_1 ; Local Machine Choice
;~          GUICtrlSetState($hGUI, @SW_MINIMIZE) ; <<<<<<<<<<<
                $OS = 'C:' ; Set the local drive choice
                $VerTest = _WinVer() ; test for windows version on the chosen drive
                $aUsers = _UserAccounts(); Work out the names of the user accounts
                $Paths = _SetPaths() ; Set the modified paths for the offline drive
                $Clean = _CleanList() ; Remove files
                ExitLoop
            Case $Button_2 ; Offline Machine Choice
                $OS = _DriveChoice() ; Make the user choose the drive
                $VerTest = _WinVer() ; test for windows version on the chosen drive
                $aUsers = _UserAccounts(); Work out the names of the user accounts
                $Paths = _SetPaths() ; Set the modified paths for the offline drive
                $Clean = _CleanList() ; Remove files
                Exit
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
EndFunc   ;==>_GuiChoice

What i want to be able to do is once $Clean = _CleanList() starts then i want to exit or minimize or something to get the window out of the way

I have to have it visible to make the choice obviously but once that has happened it needs to have gone

You can see in the code i have been trying different options ExitLoop/GUICtrlSetState($hGUI, @SW_MINIMIZE) etc

But i just cant find a way to hide it.

 

Any thoughts?

Try using BitOr instead of BitXOr. Or, post a working script that we can run to test what you're doing.

Just noticed, you're using GUICTRLSetState instead of GUISetState.


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.

And that appears to be the answer :)

Many thanks

 

The BitXOr was a snippet Melba gave me a long time ago for a non adjustable gui
