GUI can't maximized when running AutoIt script background

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a AutoIt script that run at background, and I want to maximized the GUI before it go the next step.

I had use WinGetState, but seem like WinGetState did not working and will make some tab can’t be click because the GUI is not maximized. However, if I make it run as usual (mean not running in the background), the GUI can be maximized.

#include <GuiTab.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>


If Not (WinWait("testing_name", 200)) Then ReportError("Fail to open app")

WinSetState("testing_name", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

If Not (WinActive("testing_name", "")) Then WinActivate("testing_name", "")

Is there any other way to make the GUI maximized when running at background?

Try this:

Func Maximize($hWnd)
    If BitAnd(WinGetState($hWnd), 32) = 0 Then ; not maximized
        _SendMessage($hWnd, $WM_SYSCOMMAND, $SC_MAXIMIZE, 0)
        _SendMessage($hWnd, $WM_SYSCOMMAND, $SC_RESTORE, 0)


EDIT: calling:
