Action when a user presses the X on the right of a program

24 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Is it possible to let a Traytip appear when users are trying to close a window by clicking on the X sign of the program. It's another thing for that security program where I told you guys about.

Thanks,

PcExpert

Sorry, that's not what I mean. (maybe I'm giving you to little information) What I mean is for Example:

Open Firefox. When you're trying to close it with the X presented at the upper right corner of the program, it will not close. Instead of closing the program it displays a tooltip. So the user will not be able to close it.

You could create a small window in the topright corner which covers the x-button and captures the press, displays the tooltip and does any other thing you like. And if you want to close the window anyway, just Send alt+F4.

OK, thanks! That's an option too. Does somebody know a method to do that without a GUI?

Take a closer look at the Windows API functions SetWindowsHookEx (WH_CALLWNDPRO) and CallWndProc.

OK, thanks. I tried something with Pixel get color, but that didn't seem to work the way I wanted. So I understand that there's no other way in autoit then do it with the functions discribed in the post of /dev/null

That definately looks like the way to do it to me for an outside process/window, but I remember someone else several months ago asking the same question... Unfortunately, I can't for the life of me remember the title or the person that made the question :D

OK, now I got it working with the code from i542, but if I activeate the firefox window then the titlebar from my program disappears behind firefox. Is there a way to let it always be active, even if you activate another window, so the titlebar will allways be visible?

WinSetOnTop()?

OK, thanks. I putted that in the script, but it doesn't work:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("!{F4}", "ALT")
WinSetOnTop ( "Habbo ~ Habbo Hotel - Mozilla Firefox", "", 1)
GUICreate("Habbo ~ Habbo Hotel - Mozilla Firefox", @DesktopWidth, 1, 0, 0)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)       ; will display an empty dialog box

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then MyFunction()
Wend

WinSetOnTop ( "Habbo ~ Habbo Hotel - Mozilla Firefox", "", 1)

Func alt()
    TrayTip("Beveiliging", "Handig he, zo'n beveiliging tegen lastige zusjes", "", 2)
    Sleep(3000)
    TrayTip("", "", "")
EndFunc    

Func MyFunction()
    TrayTip("Beveiliging", "Handig he, zo'n beveiliging tegen lastige zusjes", "")
    Sleep(3000)
    TrayTip("", "", "")
EndFunc

Try putting WinSetOnTop() after GUISetState(@SW_SHOW), because the window doesn't exist yet the way you have it.

Example:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

HotKeySet("!{F4}", "ALT")
$GUI = GUICreate("Habbo ~ Habbo Hotel - Mozilla Firefox", @DesktopWidth, 1, 0, 0)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)       ; will display an empty dialog box

WinSetOnTop ($GUI, "", 1)
; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then MyFunction()
Wend

Func alt()
    TrayTip("Beveiliging", "Handig he, zo'n beveiliging tegen lastige zusjes", "", 2)
    Sleep(3000)
    TrayTip("", "", "")
EndFunc   

Func MyFunction()
    TrayTip("Beveiliging", "Handig he, zo'n beveiliging tegen lastige zusjes", "")
    Sleep(3000)
    TrayTip("", "", "")
EndFunc
