Question about WinList & WinActivate

Recommended Posts

I'm working on an app launcher. I am trying to make the 'guts' of the script with a test GUI. I'm trying to make it if there is only one window open, and the window is the app launcher, it automaticaly takes focus. Heres my current code:

#Include <GUIConstants.au3>
$wins = WinList()
HotKeySet("!q", "endo")
$GUI = GUICreate("App Launcher", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Launch MOZILLA FIREFOX", 10, 10)
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $wins[0][0] = 1 and $wins[1][0] = "App Launcher" Then WinActivate("App Launcher")
If $msg = $Label1 Then Run(@ProgramFilesDir &"/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe")
Func endo()

Any idea why the program won't take focus (Like i tested by minimizing it)

I guess you need to check for only visible windows, otherwise there ' ll be always other windows around.

So long,
