@SW_HIDE not working.

5 posts in this topic

Why is this not hiding the window? Actually come to think of it I don't think I've ever got the @SW_HIDE command to work. Is it intended for something else?

Is there anyone method for hiding a window?

This is a little script that turns off the power managment feature of my Dell D610's Ethernet adaptor, and then turns it back on.

AutoItSetOption ( "RunErrorsFatal", 1 )

$run = Run("Control.exe NicConfigSvc.Cpl", "C:\WINDOWS\system32", @SW_HIDE)
$winchk = WinWait("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", 5)
ControlCommand("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button2", "Check", "")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button7")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button8")

Sleep (5000)

$run = Run("Control.exe NicConfigSvc.Cpl", "C:\WINDOWS\system32", @SW_HIDE)
$winchk = WinWait("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", 5)
ControlCommand("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button1", "Check", "")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button7")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button8")

Control.exe isn't the program that you see... thats rundll32.exe. Maybe this post helps? http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...ndpost&p=125175

Is this as good as I can make it?

On the frist 'run' the windows is not displayed at all, but the second time through after the sleep it is displayed for a few seconds.

Is there any other way to hide the window? Is my code ok?

AutoItSetOption ( "RunErrorsFatal", 1 )

Opt('WinWaitDelay', 10)
$run = Run("Control.exe NicConfigSvc.Cpl", "C:\WINDOWS\system32")
$winchk = WinWait("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", 5)
WinSetState("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", @SW_HIDE)
Opt('WinWaitDelay', 250)
ControlCommand("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button2", "Check", "")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button7")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button8")

Sleep (5000)

Opt('WinWaitDelay', 10)
$run = Run("Control.exe NicConfigSvc.Cpl", "C:\WINDOWS\system32")
$winchk = WinWait("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", 5)
WinSetState("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", @SW_HIDE)
Opt('WinWaitDelay', 250)
ControlCommand("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button1", "Check", "")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button7")
ControlClick("Internal Network Card Power Management", "", "Button8")

Does this work any better? --

Opt('RunErrorsFatal', 1)
Opt('WinWaitDelay', 0)

Local Const $Title = 'Internal Network Card Power Management'

Run('Control NicConfigSvc.Cpl', @SystemDir)
WinWait($Title)
WinSetState($Title, '', @SW_HIDE)
ControlCommand($Title, '', 'Button2', 'Check')
ControlClick($Title, '', 'Button7')
ControlClick($Title, '', 'Button8')
WinWaitClose($Title)

Run('Control NicConfigSvc.Cpl', @SystemDir)
WinWait($Title)
WinSetState($Title, '', @SW_HIDE)
ControlCommand($Title, '', 'Button1', 'Check')
ControlClick($Title, '', 'Button7')
ControlClick($Title, '', 'Button8')

No, pretty much the same, if not slighty worse. But thank you for cleaning up my code. Your's is much nicer!
