Window Hider Pro early stage

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

well i made a quick gui-less script, took me less then a minute but it's useful, i plan make more of them with a GUI with more advance options such as telling certain windows to hide and winkiller which will exit the current window or windows, great for kids :D to hide stuff from paents which i really don't need but oh well, and pretty easy to use

#NoTrayIcon
HotKeySet("{F1}", "MinimizeAll")
HotKeySet("{F2}" , "Showall")
HotKeySet("{Esc}" , "ForceExit")

While 1
    Sleep(1)
    WEnd

Func MinimizeAll()
    WinMinimizeAll()
EndFunc


Func Showall()
WinMinimizeAllUndo()
EndFunc

Func ForceExit()
    Exit
    EndFunc

It is a script that will come useful sometimes. lol

one thing:

don't use F1 as a hotkey, programs use that as a help hotkey. so if u have a window open, and press f1, it is going to open the help file...

I was gonna say that :D

Someone released one that could have 2 seperate windows, minimize/maximize them seperately. They were sent to the sys tray.

Not to be negative about your script, but isn't this the same as win+D?

Hey! I've been working on something similar, but this one hides the windows after you've selected which windows you'd like hidden.

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=28959

I also have another program that has hotkeys bound to hide windows and mute sound.

#notrayicon
Global $hotkeys
HotKeySet("+!z", "Safe")
HotKeySet("5", "Volume")
HotKeySet("{NUMPADSUB}", "Kill")

While 1
    sleep(100)
WEnd

Func Kill()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func Volume(); Volume for music
    SoundSetWaveVolume(0)
    WinSetState("Gmail -", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    WinSetState("Yahoo", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    WinSetState("Game", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
    WinSetState("Gmail -", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinSetState("Yahoo", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinSetState("Game", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_HIDE)
EndFunc

Func Safe()
    SoundSetWaveVolume(100)
    WinSetState("Parcel", "", @SW_SHOW)
    WinSetState("Gmail -", "", @SW_SHOW)
    WinSetState("Yahoo", "", @SW_SHOW)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_SHOW)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_SHOW)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_SHOW)
    WinSetState("http://", "", @SW_SHOW)
    WinSetState("Game", "", @SW_SHOW)
EndFunc

Eventually, I'm hoping to combine the two so that one would be able to select which windows to be hidden, then have that command bound to a hotkey.

yes but this should open up in a gui because when you compile it you can't set the windows no more

make something that can hide windows individually and when you press Control Down or Control Up, a GUI pops up somewhere with titles that you want to show, and you can select them with Ctrl Up + down.
