Start Menu Example

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

[Note: This is designed for MY PC if I get enough interest I may optimize it for other people's/make it universal.]

This is an example script (purely a concept)

Examples below.

Please read the concept idea before using.

You will need all the below files for it to work (Bar the source code.)

Please note that while I am giving access to this any damage done is not to be held to my accountabilitiy, additionally, please do not claim this is your own, and if you do improve on this it would be great to give some credit to me :D. You may give this away freely and are free to do what you wish with this.

Have fun with the code and enjoy.

Background for concept:

I started designing this to be a Windows 8 start menu, one of my mates asked me if he could use it, also asked me to put it on the web somewhere, and I no longer use windows 8 (that yucky OS! I hope most of you will agree with me on that.) I guess you could say, it's like the windows 95/98 start menu in looks, a but yuck. Anyway have fun and enjoy.

I may optimize this for other PCs if I get enough interest.

Question: what is "lua gui" ?

Much like an Autoit GUI except it is written in Lua instead of Autoit.

      I have a script that just adds some keyboard shortcuts for things like displaying the current song and artist, moving the window to the side so it won't pop up in my way, and play/pause, next song, previous song (these are the only 3 to still work since they don't need the window handle.)
      In some update recently, Spotify's window class swapped from "[CLASS:SpotifyMainWindow]" to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0]". Using the new class in my controls doesn't seem to work, I've tried getting the window handle from the process handle (_GetHwndFromPID($PID)) but that seems to fail as well.
      Does anybody have some idea of a way I could get this script working again?
      edit: seems like discord has the same window class name, so could be some issue with this? Still not sure of a way to solve the issue though, I added a function to get the handle of the active window and can just use that now, but it was able to find it on its own before on spotify startup or script startup which would be preferred.

      I would like to Run Outlook macros from Autoit every 1 hour, below script unable to run macros.
      While 1 $Minute = Random(1,59,1) Do Sleep(1000) Until @Min = $Minute ; do whatever ; Since we want it to run randomly once an hour, we need to calculate how much time is left before the hour is up, and sleep that length of time. $s = ((60 - $Minute) * 60) * 1000 Sleep($s) $oOApp = ObjCreate("Outlook.Application") $oOApp.Run("SaveAttachments") ; Run Outlook Macros WEnd
