Hidden Windows in Windows 10

7 posts in this topic

Hello folks,

I try to set the window state of 3th party windows (win32 gui) to "@SW_HIDE". This seems not to work properly in windows 10. The window is hidden, but it is still visible in the windows bar. If I click on it, nothing happens. Thx for some infos.

Br, s0urce

Yeah, the Windows taskbar. The app is an selfwritten one. Delphi compile to exe.

You hided the wrong window. Delphi uses a Form for Project, and the hided one is the Child of this Project.

Oh, good to know, thank you very much. Do you maybe have a solution to hide the parent "process"? I found this option "_WinAPI_GetParentProcess(WinGetProcess($title))" to get a parent process, but I found no way to hide a window with it's pid.

_WinAPI_GetWindowLong($hWnd3thParty, $GWL_HWNDPARENT) should help. It returns the needed WindowHandle from Parentwindow.

Thank you AutoBert, this was the solution. Here is my ready function, maybe someone else looking for this:

#include <WinAPI.au3>

func _WinAndParentSetState($title,$state)
  $childHandle=WinGetHandle($title)
  $parentLong=_WinAPI_GetWindowLong($childHandle,$GWL_HWNDPARENT)
  $parentHandle=HWnd($parentLong)
  WinSetState($parentHandle,'',$state)
  WinSetState($childHandle,'',$state)
endfunc

      Hello,
      first of all i searched in the forum but i didn't found any solution to my problem.
      I am using windows 10.
      I made a script that is supposed to change the title to the active window, resize it to the smallest size possible (should be around 800 x 600) and move to (0, 0).
      I can change the title but i fail to do the other 2 tasks.
      i use wingettitle [active] copied from the F1 help tool (and this works), i i put the title in a variable and than i use
      winsettitle ($variable, "one") (this works too)
      winmove ("one", 0, 0, 800, 600) (doesn't do anything)
      i also tried
      local $x = winget ( "one")
      msgbox (0, "", $x) (i get a completely white box so i suppose winget can't have any data about my window ??)
      any suggestion ?

      I have a script that autostart with Windows, and sometimes some of my code is skipped. My script takes long pauses, so it's not that the script "goes too fast". This is my script for now:
      TraySetIcon("C:\Portables\AutoIt\_\icon.ico") AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Run("C:\Portables\Key Manager\keymanager.exe") WinActivate("ATNSOFT Key Manager v") WinWaitActive("ATNSOFT Key Manager v") WinMove("ATNSOFT Key Manager v", "", 650, 200, 600, 800) Sleep(500) $pos = MouseGetPos() MouseClick("left", 1220, 210, 1, 100) MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1], 100) Run("C:\Portables\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe") $version = 298 For $i = 0 To 99 Step 1 $path = "C:\Users\spunit\AppData\Local\Discord\app-0.0." & $version + $i & "\Discord.exe" If FileExists($path) Then Run($path) ExitLoop EndIf Next Run("C:\Portables\Firefox\FirefoxPortable.exe") Sleep(10000) WinMove("- Mozilla Firefox", "", 205, 0, 1214, 1047) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 1300, 15, 1, 10) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 1130, 275, 1, 10) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 930, 105, 1, 10) Sleep(100) Send("#{m}") Sometimes it skips to click and move mouse right after Key Manager starts. Almost always it skips everything after the last run.

      This type of script were never an issue with Windows 7... Any thoughts?

      I can not do anything with any user in the "Local Users Group"
      I tried from my account but I could not change my password (ie set new password)!
      But I was able to activate the Administrator account and I logged into the Administrator account and still could not do anything with my account! But I can set the password and disable the Administrator account from my account or Administrator.
      Any ideas? (Ignore the click on the Sign-in option in the Change Accout settings.)

      When I want to test Example 1 of Function _IECreate (AutoIt Help File), I see that function _IECreate doesn't work in Windows 10.
      Syntax Check (Ctrl+F5) gives no errors.
       
      Example 1:
      ; Create a browser window and navigate to a website #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.autoitscript.com")  
      The error I receive with F5 (Tools, Go) in SciTE:
