Open and focus Calculator

Recommended Posts

I'm doing a script that opens and focuses the calculator, or closes it if it exists. My problem is that sometimes it appears behind other windows, and sometimes it doesn't focus, and sometimes it focuses but keyboard strokes doesn't register, and sometimes everything works fine... I really can't figure out why it differs like this. I have a similar thing that brings up or minimizes foobar2000, and that always works.

 

Here's my code:

#include <Misc.au3>
#include <Sound.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
$hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")
Opt("SendCapslockMode", 0)
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
AutoItSetOption("MouseCoordMode", 0)


While 1
    If _IsPressed("43", $hDLL) Then ; C
        If WinExists("Kalkylatorn") Then
            WinKill("Kalkylatorn")
        Else
            Run("calc.exe")
            WinSetState("Kalkylatorn", "", @SW_RESTORE)
            WinActivate("Kalkylatorn")
        EndIf
        While _IsPressed("43", $hDLL)
            Sleep(10)
        WEnd
    EndIf
    Sleep(50)
    
    
    If _IsPressed("46", $hDLL) Then ; F
        $state = WinGetState(" [foobar2000 v")
        If $state = 23 Or $state = 31 Then
            WinSetState(" [foobar2000 v", "", @SW_RESTORE)
            WinActivate(" [foobar2000 v")
        Else
            WinSetState(" [foobar2000 v", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
            If WinActive(" [foobar2000 v") Then
                WinActivate("Program Manager")
            EndIf
        EndIf
        While _IsPressed("46", $hDLL)
            Sleep(10)
        WEnd
    EndIf
WEnd

Give calc.exe some time to start.

insert a winwait() after run()

Hmmm for now everything kind of works, so I can't tell if this works... I'll report back when it doesn't and I can test it. Thanks 😃
