Just had an idea and wanted to know where to start. I want to download a screenshot of a website automatically into a .png .jpg ect format so I can then set it as my desktop background.
This might be for for news: When the latest news is added to a website a screenshot of that website is saved and added to my desktop background.
I have tried using website that already do the screenshot but you have to open the website and click the button for it to generate one and thus InetGet does not help.
Been looking for and playing around with a script that would prompt me for a UserName and Password then Map a network drive.
I have included the code:
#AutoIt3Wrapper_icon=your_icon.ico #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Obfuscator=y #obfuscator_parameters=/striponly #NoTrayIcon #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Connect To Your Drive", 265, 135) $username_id = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 88, 16, 153, 21) $password_id = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 87, 44, 153, 21, $ES_PASSWORD) GUICtrlCreateLabel("&Username", 24, 16, 52, 17) GUICtrlCreateLabel("&Password", 26, 46, 50, 17) $connect = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Connect", 24, 80, 217, 33, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_BUTTON, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $connect $username = GUICtrlRead($username_id) $password = GUICtrlRead($password_id) If $username = '' Or $password = '' Then MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'Empty username or password') ContinueLoop EndIf If DriveMapGet("X:") <> '' Then ; very fast MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'The device is already assigned') ContinueLoop EndIf GUISetCursor(15,1) DriveMapAdd("X:", "\\Server\share\filestore\" & $username, 0, $username, $password) ; slow If @error Then Switch @error Case 1 $err_message = 'Undefined / Other error. Windows API return code: ' & @extended Case 2 $err_message = 'Access to the remote share was denied' Case 3 $err_message = 'The device is already assigned' Case 4 $err_message = 'Invalid device name' Case 5 $err_message = 'Invalid remote share' Case 6 $err_message = 'Invalid password' EndSwitch GUISetCursor(2) MsgBox(16, 'Error', $err_message) Else ; everything OK Exit EndIf EndSwitch WEnd
When I attempt the build I get the following:
Obfuscator support has been discontinued and is replaced by Au3Stripper using "#Au3Stripper_" directives.
! The directive to run Au3Stripper is: #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y ; Default is n
! #Au3Stripper_Parameters options are:
/pe : Replace and reference to a Global Const variable with its actual value.
/tl : Create Au3Stripper.Log with a trace of all actions.
/debug: add Debug information to Au3Stripper.Log.
/so : This is the default when no parameters are provided. same as /sf + /sv
/sf : Strip all unused Func's
/sv : Strip all unused Global var records.
/mo : Just merges the Include files into the source and strips the Comments.
This is similar to aut2exe and helps finding the errorline.
/mi : Sets the maximum Iterations Au3Stripper will perform. Default is 5.
/rm : Rename Variables and Functions to a shorter name.
/rsln: Replace @ScriptLineNumber with the actual line number.
/Beta: Use Beta Includes.
- Icon not found: your_icon.ico ==> Changing to default ICON.

Many thanks in advance
Has anybody else noticed that Windows 7 reacts ignorantly when you use the Windows key + arrow key shortcuts on a GUI with GUIEventMode set to 1? I discovered this recently when I was working on an app where I wanted complete control over the maximize/minimize buttons.
Just give it a spin:
#include <GUIConstants.au3> Opt('GUIEventOptions', 1) $hGUI = GUICreate('', 300, 200, Default, Default, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_MAXIMIZEBOX)) GUISetState() While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE ToolTip('Maximized') Case $GUI_EVENT_MINIMIZE ToolTip('Minimized') Case $GUI_EVENT_RESTORE ToolTip('Restored') Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd Run that, then hit Win+Up or Win+Down. None of those events get triggered, and it still maximizes/minimizes. Although I can't get it to restore down from a maximize unless the window is also resizable ($WS_THICKFRAME in the style).
Is there a way to stop Windows from doing what it wants or is the only option to check with WinGetState() and then change it back?
Windows 10 seems to respect my settings, and I don't have any other versions to test on.
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.
hey, can anybody enlighten on lesser known Windows hacks or uses ?
