How to enable a window?

Recommended Posts

afallenhope

Hello all I am trying to use this function to detect if a specific window is running. Then for it to activate it and send an ALT+F command to close the window. But I cannot seem to get it to detect the window and subsequently the rest of the code does not work. 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Handleit()
   Func Handleit()
      If WinExists("[CLASS:MsiDialogCloseClass]","InstallShield") Then
         WinActivate("[CLASS:MsiDialogCloseClass]","Installshield")
         Send("!f")
      Else
         MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Uhhh... something didn't work. Fix it!")
      EndIf
   EndFunc

Is there anything that I can substitute for the CLASS? 

Thank you for taking the time to read my question! 

-Richard

Have you tried it without the Text parameter?

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

      Hi All,

      MAIN QUESTION:
      Is it possible to Call specific function within a GUI

      So I have a script with multiple functions although I don't want to use every function every time.
      My Idea is to create a simple GUI which allows me to select what functions I want to use then run the funtions by clicking a button.
      I have already made a GUI which allows me to select specific .exe's I would like to run after selection it runs the .exe one by one.
      This script is on my work laptops and cannot access it right now.
       
      Who can help me with this?
      GUIcreate
      Func1 
      Func2
      Func3
      Then have a boxes which allows me to select the specif Func.(I used GUIChecked and Unchecked in my other script)
      Then a button which executes/calls the selected functions

      Good evening everyone
      I was trying to insert function header to the functions of my script, but, in the SciTE console, this appears:
      Function or struct definition not found, unable to insert header. @Jos Any suggestion?
      Thanks in advance.

      Best Regards.

      Hi all,
      I'm having some trouble restoring a program which uses a normal AutoIT-GUI and is used as a ToolKit for our customers to open different (external) tools, check their network connections or ping different destinations. Almost all customers are running this script on Win7 x64. 
      What do I want to do?
      When the program is already running and the user tries to start it for a second time, it should exit the second instance after activating/restoring the first instance.
      What did I do to integrate this?
      I used a little piece of script found on the forums to prevent opening a second instance and modified it as follows:
      $g_szVersion = "VSOL ToolKit" If WinExists($g_szVersion) Then Local $gState = WinGetState($g_szVersion) MsgBox(0,"","gState = " & $gState) ;For debugging purposes WinSetState($g_szVersion,"",@SW_SHOW) MsgBox(0,"","gState = " & $gState) ;For debugging purposes WinSetState($g_szVersion,"",@SW_RESTORE) MsgBox(0,"","gState = " & $gState) ;For debugging purposes WinActivate($g_szVersion) Exit EndIf AutoItWinSetTitle($g_szVersion) I have tried it with only the @SW_SHOW, only the @SW_RESTORE, both of them in a different order, same difference, it doesn't work.
      What does happen then?
      It detects the current state (when it's minimized) as '5', which means enabled and hidden. After setting the state to show, the state changes to 7. Restoring doesn't change the state. But what is really odd, is that the window doesn't appear but AutoIt seems to create a néw window with the same title as the existing one. 

      It doesn't matter if the window was originally minimized by clicking the minimize button in the GUI or by a line of code in my script. For example, when users open a software package from within my script, a similar function to this one will be called:
      Func VSOL_FFTOOLS_SHOW_DOWNLOADS() GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE,$VSOL_BACKEND) ShellExecute(@UserProfileDir & "\Downloads") EndFunc The only thing that does work, is when the window is running in a non-minimized state (somewhere behind the current window), it gets activated and receives the focus when trying to start the second instance.
      If anyone could help me out with this one, I'd be forever thankful :-)
      Thanks in advance!
      Kind regards,
      Jan Geurts

      Hi! I have another problem with AutoIT.  You see, I'm still the one who's just starting out with this great programming language. I have a problem with AutoIT, it seems not to recognize the "StringReplace" function even when it is by default. The code was made half in KODA and half of my own. It is a software programmed for the Italian language (I am Italian) and translate the SMS language into Italian correct. Would you help me? Thanks in advance.
