Child GUI appear before Parent GUI after maximize or minimize the Parent GUI

Recommended Posts


While i am maximize or minimize the parent GUI, the child GUI appeared before the parent GUI (0.5 seconds before).

I think it's related to the following line:

$ChildHotFolder = GUICreate("Hot Folder",480, 120, 0, -1,$WS_POPUP,$WS_EX_MDICHILD,$MainHotFolder)

Please help me here :)

this is the code:

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include "UDF\CompareImagesUDF.au3"
#Include "UDF\LogUDF.au3"
#Include "UDF\InitializationUDF.au3"
#Include "UDF\LoadingUDF.au3"
#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

@Amichai, in the future try to post a runnable reproducer - your script contains references to external UDF's and ommitted functions, so it is not easy for us to help you - and it's not our job either.

for your issue - you may want to consider WinSetTrans(). use it to set the transparency of the child GUI to 0 (=invisible) before maximize/minimize/restore, and once that operation is complete, set it to 255 (=solid). i use this method successfully whenever the Windows minimize animation gets on my nerves... ;)
