5 posts in this topic

hey i'm tryin to make a program that basically just hides all of the windows, i know i can use the controlhide command, but how would i make it hide all of the windows? then i also want to be able to unhide them with the controlshow command, how do i do them all at once?

thanks

I haven't tested it, but you could try and make a script that do the following :

  • Send ALT+TAB
  • Receive the active title
  • Hide the active title
  • Keep doing the three first points until the active title is

    either empty or the desktop ("Program Manager")

It sounds like it could work, but as I said it's untested.

I can give you a example code of how to do it, when I get enough time for it..

Good luck !

the taskbar usually has a blank title, and has the time as the text, so you can rename that window, and restore it.

I tried to find my joke one that would hide each window, and then wait til you hit a key to restore them all back, but I may have deleted it.

how would i make the program hide (not just minimize) all the windows but then put the names of the windows the program has hidden in a list somehow, so that i can make them all come back?
