Flashing windows ?

Recommended Posts

Mr_cooper

I've just started using AutoIt to script dailytasks,  but there's one thing i don't seem to figure out.

I'd like to jump from one blinking window to another as soon as they start to blink.

I've seen you can get a window to flash, but the WinGetState function does not give anything about flashing.

I've also looked in the include files to see if any constant could help, but i have'nt find anything particular.

Am i missing something ?

 

Thanks in advance

Perhaps flashwindow api could be hooked, I don't know about that though.

If it were me needing this, and a better solution were not offered, I would start looking to see If I could get the position of windows taskbar icons and monitor pixels.

AutoIt would be especially easy for this.

Hi @Mr_cooper I found a old forum thread from 2007. I did a test with the code on Windows XP. It ran. Not sure it will work on Windows 7-10 but you can give it a try: Easy Shell Hooking Example
