WinGetState returns visible

Recommended Posts

WinGetState returns a number indicating that a window is visible (WS_VISIBLE flag). Also when it is covered by another window as it is "visible" (WS_VISIBLE is set). Do you have a sugestion on how I can determine if a window, or part of it, is visible to the user (as in not covered by another window)?

$windowID = GUICreate("Visible test")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
local $msg
AdlibEnable("TrackWindow", 3000)
Do
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   if $msg = 0 Then Sleep(250)
Until $msg = -3
AdlibDisable()
Exit

Func TrackWindow()
   Global $gTrackWindowPrevState
   Local $WinState
   $WinState = WinGetState($windowID)
   If $WinState <> $gTrackWindowPrevState Then 
      $gTrackWindowPrevState = $WinState
      ConsoleWrite(@Min & ":" & @Sec & " " &  WinGetStateToString($WinState) & @LF)
   Endif
EndFunc
Func WinGetStateToString($state)
   If BitAnd($state, 1) = 1 Then $ret = "EXISTS, "
   If BitAnd($state, 2) = 2 Then $ret = $ret & "VISIBLE, "
   If BitAnd($state, 4) = 4 Then $ret = $ret & "ENABLED, "
   If BitAnd($state, 8) = 8 Then $ret = $ret & "ACTIVE, "
   If BitAnd($state, 16) = 16 Then $ret = $ret & "MINIMIZED, "
   If BitAnd($state, 32) = 32 Then $ret = $ret & "MAXIMIZED, "
   If StringRight($ret, 2) = ", " Then 
      $ret =  StringLeft($ret, StringLen($ret) -2 )
   EndIf
   Return $ret
EndFunc

That's because visible in this case is not the same as "being able to see it", I think you want to check whether it is active, 'cause that's what changes when something covers it.

That is about what I tried to say in my first post :)

What I needed to know was if the window (or part of ) is visible but not active. I think I have seen code for this in other languages, but cant recall where and when. Probably as part of some drawing code.

Anyhow, I have found a way around my problem, so it is solved but not through the "IsRealyVisible" way.

Appreciate for your response.
