Hidden Files Toggle (how to refresh after that?)

21 posts in this topic

I am using this script to to what i want(btw, this compose window is great :whistle: ):

CODE
AutoItSetOption ( "TrayMenuMode" ,1 )

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

If NOt WinActive("classname=ExploreWClass") And Not WinActive("classname=CabinetWClass") And Not WinActive("classname=Progman") Then

TrayTip("Quitting-","No Explorer window active." ,3,3)

Sleep(5750)

Exit

EndIf

AutoItSetOption ( "TrayIconHide" ,1 )

$optionKey = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced"

$valueName = "ShowSuperHidden"

$NewValue = 1

If RegRead($optionKey,$valueName) Then $NewValue = 0

RegWrite($optionKey,$valueName,"REG_DWORD",$NewValue)

;$hWnd = ControlGetHandle("active","","SysListView321")

;DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", 0x111, "int", 28931, "int", 0)

ControlSend("active","","SysListView321"," ^ +{F10}")

Sleep(250)

ControlSend("active","","SysListView321","e")

The problem is this uses Send which i dont like. I tried DllCall (as you can see in comment) but it didn't work. How can i refresh the folder/desktop(without using Send..) after updating the reg value ?

and why the F5 doesn't work here ?

this is my first auto-it script so any suggestions welcome..

Send("{F5}")
F5 does refresh the view but it never updates the file list. What's more strange is, after updating the reg value, you can navigate away from the folder and come back, but the file list will be SAME but if you right click and choose "Refresh"- the list is updated !!

No .. doesn't work.. ok i want to give the DllCall (SendMessage) a try.. can you check that.. is it correct ? i want to run WM_COMMAND > 28931

i think explorer uses that message when you choose Refresh on contextmenu.

edit:

i am sure that will work (WM_COMMAND > 28931) because i just tested that with AutoHotKey... so can you tell me what is wrong with that DllCall ?

For Tootgle hidden folders:

$ReadHideFileExt = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "Hidden")

If $ReadHideFileExt = 1 Then
    RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "Hidden", "REG_DWORD", 2)

Or, if you do not want to see the “Folder Options” dialog, then try this:

$ReadHideFileExt = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt")

    RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt", "REG_DWORD", 0)

@MsCreatoR 1st Reply:

I dont like Send and this is even worse!

@2nd Reply: Yeah.. that's what i am using now but as i mentioned,I prefer not to use Send when possible. In this case, it is possible by sending WM_command 28931 but NOONE WANTS TO TELL ME HOW TO SEND THAT COMMAND

Thanks for the reply, anyway ..

I dont like Send

I don't like it to, but just sometimes, we have to match ourselves to the environment, not the opposite :whistle: .

If someone can find a way to refresh the folder using direct sending message (using DllCall()), i be werry glad, but if not, it's ok, I accept it as it is (as i posted in exampales).

P.S

By the way, I was already ask about it here.

The code works great but i'm having issues with it running under Windows 2000. This line always error out.

Run("RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 0")

Error says unable to execute external program.Directory name is invalid. I tried using a literal as

Run("C:\winnt\system32\RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 0")

but the result error is the same. Any help would be greatful.

Hi,

As i see from the screen, you are using wrong method, try this:

ShellExecute(@SystemDir & "\RunDll32.exe", "shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 0")

But why do you need this?

I'm running the most recent version (v3.2.10.0), and it gives no error message when it crashes. Windows error reporting does pop up however.

I remembered now that i had these hard-crashes too. It might be related to RAM shortage. I only can post a little changed code (for the latest AutoIt version compatibility), but it's will not prevent the hard-crashes i think:

#NoTrayIcon
$RegKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced"

If RegRead($RegKey, "Hidden") = 1 Then
    RegWrite($RegKey, "Hidden", "REG_DWORD", 2)
Else
    RegWrite($RegKey, "Hidden", "REG_DWORD", 1)
EndIf

UpdateExplorer()

Func UpdateExplorer()
    Local $hWnd, $WinExpListArr = _ExplWinGetList()
    Local Const $WM_COMMAND = 0x0111
    
    If IsArray($WinExpListArr) Then
        For $iWin = 1 To $WinExpListArr[0]
            $hWnd = WinGetHandle($WinExpListArr[$iWin])
            DllCall("user32.dll", "none", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_COMMAND, "int", 28931, "int", 0)
        Next
    EndIf

    $hWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Progman]")
    DllCall("user32.dll", "none", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_COMMAND, "int", 28931, "int", 0)
EndFunc   ;==>UpdateExplorer

Func _ExplWinGetList()
    Local $WinList = WinList("[CLASS:CabinetWClass]")
    
    If IsArray($WinList) Then
        Local $WinListArr[$WinList[0][0] + 1]
        $WinListArr[0] = $WinList[0][0]
        
        For $iW = 1 To $WinList[0][0]
            $WinListArr[$iW] = $WinList[$iW][0]
        Next
        
        Return $WinListArr
    EndIf
    
    Return ""
EndFunc   ;==>_ExplWinGetList
