created basic script, how do I hide the counter/state window in the top left corner?

Recommended Posts

So I created a really basic script just to close a program after it's been idle for x amount of seconds.  Script is as follows:


Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ;2 = any substring
Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

$S_running = "check-4-app" ;name the script
If WinExists($S_running) Then Exit

$title = "Notepad++"
$count = 0
While 1
    $state = WinGetState($title)
    $count += 1

    If $state = 15 Or $state = 47 Or $state = 0 Then $count = 0

    If $count > 10 Then WinClose($title)

    ToolTip("count = " & $count, 0, 0, "state = " & $state)


It works great, but it creates a small gui box in the top left corner that counts the state, and timer of inactivity.  Is there a way to hide that counter in the top left corner completely?

I thought you said you created this script? You don't know what it's doing? You have a tooltip in there that is the counter you're talking about.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
