Set on top a GUI

Recommended Posts

Good morning community! :)
I was working on a script which read the content of a .ini file to retrieve the file that has to open, and, based on the value of a second key stored in the .ini file, set the window on top, minimized or maximized...
I did something like this, but seems to not work properly...
Could anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you :)

And the .ini file is like this:

ModalitaAperturaExe=Here goes one of the value below
/* TOP Shows the windows on top */
/* MIN Shows the window minimized */
/* MAX Shows the window maximized */

FrancescoDiMuro,

This works for me. I have highlighted the changes (<<<<<<<<):

#include <Array.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>

$iPID = ShellExecute("text.txt")

; Use placeholder as flag for success <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Local $hWnd = 9999

Do
    ; List GUIs
    $aWinList = WinList()
    ; Check if PID found and if GUI is visible <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0]
        If WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1]) = $iPID And BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), 2) Then
            ; Store handle
            $hWnd = $aWinList[$i][1]
            ; Stop searching <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
    ; Save CPU
    Sleep(10)

Until $hWnd <> 9999 ; Keep looking until GUI appears <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

$iMode = InputBox("Mode", "1, 2, 3")

Switch $iMode
    Case 1 ; Use correct syntax for Switch - you were using Select syntax <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        ToolTip("MIN", 0, 0)
        WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    Case 2
        ToolTip("MAX", 0, 0)
        WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    Case 2
        ToolTip("TOP", 0, 0)
        WinSetOnTop($hWnd, "", $WINDOWS_ONTOP)

EndSwitch

@Melba23
Thank you for you corrections :)
I'll try your code asap :)
 

2 hours ago, Melba23 said:

you were using Select syntax <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Sorry for the mistake... Better if I change the Switch...Case to the Select...Case, in order to tell the script what I mean! :)
Again, thank you, and have a wonderful day :)

EDIT:

Bizzarre things here!
If I use this code, and try to run Notepad, I can't click anymore on anything on the first screen ( I have 2 screens )...
I have added everything you suggested to me LESS the control over the visible of the GUI...
What the?!

EDIT 2:

Even If I copy-pasted your code, it doesn't work for me, launching Notepad...
I don't know why...

FrancescoDiMuro,

Change

If(WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1] = $iPID)) Then

to read

If WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1]) = $iPID Then

and it will work.

Might I suggest NOT placing parentheses around the arguments for If comparisons - they are only really necessary when using Not to make sure you apply the logical operator to only the required part of the expression.

Good morning @Melba23:)
Thank you for your suggestion... I applied it too, but, unfortunately, it still doesn't work properly...
I tried to launch Notepad.exe...

I don't know why it doesn't work... The window appears in the left-bottom side ( outside the screen ) of the screen...
This is the code:
 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>

Local $sFileConfigurazione = @ScriptDir & "\configurazione_exe.ini"

Local $aWinList

If(FileExists($sFileConfigurazione)) Then
    Local $aSezioneIni = IniReadSection($sFileConfigurazione, "CONFIGURAZIONE_EXE")
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'apertura del file: " & @CRLF & $sFileConfigurazione & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error)
    Else
        ; Lancio dell'applicativo indicato nel file di configurazione
        Local $iPID = ShellExecute($aSezioneIni[1][1])
        Local $hWnd = 9999 ; Placeholder for success
        Do
            $aWinList = WinList()
            For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0]
                If WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1] = $iPID) And BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), 2) Then
                    $hWnd = $aWinList[$i][1]
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            Next
            Sleep(10) ; Save CPU
        Until $hWnd <> 9999

        Select
            Case $aSezioneIni[2][1] = "MIN"
                WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
            Case $aSezioneIni[2][1] = "MAX"
                WinSetState($hWnd, WinGetTitle($hWnd), @SW_MAXIMIZE)
            Case $aSezioneIni[2][1] = "TOP"
                WinSetOnTop($hWnd, WinGetTitle($hWnd), $WINDOWS_ONTOP)
        EndSelect
    EndIf
EndIf

If anyone would help me, I'd be very happy :)
Thanks again and sorry for my requests...

That is because you have NOT applied it. You still have:

If WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1] = $iPID)

when what you should have is:

If WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1]) = $iPID

which is exactly the same error as I corrected above.

If you actually read the help you were given, so would we.

I wasn''t payin' enough attention at the code... Sorry for that!

Now it works like a charm :)
Thank you for your time and your patience, and have a wonderful day :)

      I use SetSoundDevice to control my audio devices but the UI was either
       
      blurry like this:
      or unusable like this:

      so I made this horrible thing to add scaling to the GUI:

      And now it looks good: 
      but it doesn't work on everything, for example the "GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)" (from the autoit3wrapper gui)
      because the comment contains a parenthesis and it would break completely if there were variables as parameters..
      Is there some kind of parser around that I could use instead or maybe someone who has already done something like this?

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi, recently i created a GUI for some calculations in AutoIT.  The GUI has 2 tabs and on the first tab, it has few inputboxes where i use to click with mouse and start entering the inputs. i recently made some changes in the position of these textboxes. I made this by changing the autoit code file instead of making changes in KODA. Now i cannot click inside these textboxes with mouse. However, i can use TAB key to cycle through/enter input in these input boxes. what could have made the inputboxes not responding to mouseclicks. thanks

      Introduction
      ImGui is a popular library written by ocornut, it can make awesome user interface based on directx. It is being used by many big apps/games.  The UI is nice and flexible, easy to use because of frame-by-frame drawing. So I decided to convert the entire ImGui library to AutoIt
      At first it's just an experiment, i converted some basic draw functions of imgui, compile to a dll, then using DllCall in autoit to call the functions. I was testing to see how much FPS i can get in autoit, and i was expected a low FPS, since autoit is slow. Suprisingly, the FPS turned out to be so high, it works really fast, even when drawing 1000 buttons at the same time. Features
      More than +270 functions converted from ImGui (compiled dll). Has 90% of the capability of what you can do in C++; Usable ImGuiIO and ImGuiStyle, so you can set whatever configurations you like. Preview
          
      Usage
      #include <WinAPI.au3> #include "ImGui.au3" ; Create a window Local $hwnd = _ImGui_GUICreate("AutoIt ImGui", 1024, 768) _WinAPI_ShowWindow($hwnd) ; Set style color _ImGui_StyleColorsLight() ;~ _ImGui_StyleColorsDark() Local $f_value = 5 While 1 ; when the user click close button on the window, this will return false if Not _ImGui_PeekMsg() Then Exit ; must call _ImGui_BeginFrame() _ImGui_Begin("Another window") _ImGui_Text("Hello there..") If _ImGui_Button("click me") Then $f_value = 5 _ImGui_SliderFloat("slider", $f_value, 2, 20) If _ImGui_IsItemHovered() Then _ImGui_ToolTip("what r u doing?") _ImGui_End() ; must call _ImGui_EndFrame() Wend  
      Remark
      Most of the functions were converted automatically. I haven't tested all of them yet, if some function doesn't work for you, please tell me. Still missing some features of ImGui, please tell me if you needed any. Run \tools\imgui-au3-setup.au3 to add _ImGui functions to SciTE auto-complete. Source Code
