hmmm. autoit revealer does not change when you scroll through the alt+tab windows.

I would go something like alt+tab but wait for "active window" until your app is active, then exit.

good luck

i am actually very much interested in learning this autoit eventhough i had installed it recently.....

actually here is my problem....

i want to open one of my program which is minimized to system tray by writing a code for it in autoIT , i thought that i can acheive it by sending a set of keyboard inputs through "Send" command

i found that the following combination leads to highlight system tray icons

windows+d+{tab 4}

windows+d is to show desktop and {tab 4} is to highlight one of the system tray icons.......

but this combination is not working.....

so can anyone plzz suggest me how can i acheive this.....

If the application is just minimized then that will work, if it is sent to be an icon next to the clock then you will have to send the message that it needs (I have no idea which one) in order to restore.
