How to avoid window activation ?


Recommended Posts

Here is repro code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Example()

; Simple example: Embedding an Internet Explorer Object inside an AutoIt GUI
Func Example()
    ; This particular object is declared as ObjEvent() need to stored the Object, #forceref to avoid Au3Check warning.
    Local $oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", _ErrFunc)
    #forceref $oErrorHandler

    Local $idButton_Back, $idButton_Forward
    Local $idButton_Home, $idButton_Stop, $iMsg

    Local $oIE = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")

    ; Create a simple GUI for our output
    Local $hwnd = GUICreate("Embedded Web control Test", 640, 580, (@DesktopWidth - 640) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
    GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 40, 600, 360)
    GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

    $idButton_Back = GUICtrlCreateButton("Back", 10, 420, 100, 30)
    $idButton_Forward = GUICtrlCreateButton("Forward", 120, 420, 100, 30)
    $idButton_Home = GUICtrlCreateButton("AutoIt Home", 230, 420, 100, 30)
    $idButton_Stop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 330, 420, 100, 30)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Show GUI
    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]'))

    WinActivate("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.*SciTE.*)]")
    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]'))

    WinSetTitle($hwnd,'','NEW TITLE')
    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]'))

    WinActivate("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.*SciTE.*)]")

    $oIE.navigate("http://google.com")
    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]'))

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()

        Select
            Case $iMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $iMsg = $idButton_Home
;~              $oIE.navigate("http://www.autoitscript.com")
            Case $iMsg = $idButton_Back
                $oIE.GoBack
            Case $iMsg = $idButton_Forward
                $oIE.GoForward
            Case $iMsg = $idButton_Stop
                $oIE.Stop
        EndSelect

    WEnd

    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>Example

; User's COM error function. Will be called if COM error occurs

    ; Do anything here.
    ConsoleWrite(@ScriptName & " (" & $oError.scriptline & ") : ==> COM Error intercepted !" & @CRLF & _

as you can see I activate SciTE window, but this two lines

....
WinSetTitle($hwnd,'','NEW TITLE')
....
$oIE.navigate("http://google.com")
....

activating $hwnd 

Question 1: 
Why this 2 lines mentioned above activate $hwnd window ?

Question 2:
How to avoid window activation in this specific cases ?

Question 3:
Is this some kind of bug that WinSetTitle() activate window ?

I found answer to Question 2:
To avoid window activation there is a need to use:

....
GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $hwnd)
....
GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $hwnd)
....

like in the following example

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Example()

; Simple example: Embedding an Internet Explorer Object inside an AutoIt GUI
Func Example()
    ; This particular object is declared as ObjEvent() need to stored the Object, #forceref to avoid Au3Check warning.
    Local $oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", _ErrFunc)
    #forceref $oErrorHandler

    Local $oIE = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")

    ; Create a simple GUI for our output
    Local $hwnd = GUICreate("Embedded Web control Test", 640, 580, (@DesktopWidth - 640) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
    GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 40, 600, 360)
    GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Show GUI

    GUISetState(@SW_DISABLE, $hwnd)
;~  GUISetState(@SW_LOCK, $hwnd)

    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]') & @CRLF & 'MAIN GUI STATE = ' & WinGetState($hwnd))

    WinActivate("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.*SciTE.*)]")
    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]') & @CRLF & 'MAIN GUI STATE = ' & WinGetState($hwnd))

    WinSetTitle($hwnd, '', 'NEW TITLE')
    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]') & @CRLF & 'MAIN GUI STATE = ' & WinGetState($hwnd))

    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]') & @CRLF & 'MAIN GUI STATE = ' & WinGetState($hwnd))

    $oIE.navigate("http://google.com")
    MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Information #" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Active window is: " & WinGetTitle('[ACTIVE]') & @CRLF & 'MAIN GUI STATE = ' & WinGetState($hwnd))

    GUISetState(@SW_ENABLE, $hwnd)
;~  GUISetState(@SW_UNLOCK, $hwnd)

    Local $iMsg
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()

        Select
            Case $iMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSelect

    WEnd

    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>Example

; User's COM error function. Will be called if COM error occurs
Func _ErrFunc($oError)
    ; Do anything here.
    ConsoleWrite(@ScriptName & " (" & $oError.scriptline & ") : ==> COM Error intercepted !" & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.number is: " & @TAB & @TAB & "0x" & Hex($oError.number) & @CRLF & _

            @TAB & "err.retcode is: " & @TAB & "0x" & Hex($oError.retcode) & @CRLF & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>_ErrFunc

Why this 2 lines mentioned above activate $hwnd window ?

Question 2: .......

Question 3:
Is this some kind of bug that WinSetTitle() activate window ?

and I have 


Question 4:
Why @SW_Lock do not does not prevent the control from being refreshed  ?
I mean after    $oIE.navigate("http://google.com")   before @SW_Unlock.

To check just uncoment this 2 following lines in second example .

....
GUISetState(@SW_LOCK, $hwnd)
....
GUISetState(@SW_UNLOCK, $hwnd)
....

 

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards,

Hello. I think is not an issue. It's maybe something related to Windows I tested using SetWindowText API and It gets activated too even from an external process.

After  @Danyfirex answer it look like this is normal windows behavior.

Question 4:
Why @SW_Lock do not does not prevent the control from being refreshed  ?
I mean after    $oIE.navigate("http://google.com")   before @SW_Unlock.

after @argumentum this is interesting

Question 5:
How to get handle to the window which is embeded into to control by  GUICtrlCreateObj() function.

Because then it could be that this two following lines:

....
GUISetState(@SW_LOCK, $hwnd)
....
GUISetState(@SW_UNLOCK, $hwnd)
....

should be called on this embeded window and not on $hwnd .

And it is a solution that covers all my initial needs related to the task underlying this thread.

..... but......

I also checked with uncomented this folowing line :

....
GUISetState(@SW_LOCK, $hwnd)
....
GUISetState(@SW_UNLOCK, $hwnd)
....


And now I'm wondering:
Question 6:
Why windows title is changing (you can see it) regardless of the fact that window is locked ?

I mean if window is locked than in my understanding according to HelpFile:

Quote

@SW_LOCK = Lock the window to avoid repainting.

entire window and also WinTitle should not repaint  in this following scenario:

....
GUISetState(@SW_LOCK, $hwnd)
....
WinSetTitle($hwnd, '', 'NEW TITLE')
....
GUISetState(@SW_UNLOCK, $hwnd)
....

 

btw.
 @argumentum Hope you are now happy with then next 6th question 😜
