Probably not a bug so I'll post it here

3 posts in this topic

I have not tried this in a situation where there is only one window but this is what happens if you have a child window open.

Using GUISetState(@SW_Locked, $My_Child)

The child window locks just the way it should. However if you open another app over top or min imize the main window then it will unlock. Not really urgent but it is probably one of two things;

1) undesireable behaviour

2) something that needs documenting in the help file

And Merry Christmas to the development team

Not sure the doc is not clear but at least that' it say.

Only one window can be locked with @SW_LOCK and it is always the last one referenced

Ok. When it gets locked it is the last window referenced however another window is called later. That by itself is not enough to break the lock. The only thing that breaks it is opening another window overtop or minimizing the window. It's not major. I'm really just wondering why I have to work around it. Since i have a long delay loop wihin another loop I just refresh the lock each time it enters the second loop so it's not a problem in this case.
