WinSetTrans

6 posts in this topic




Is it possible to do a WinSetTrans on a process? Like firefox.exe?

:whistle: HUH? :)

Would you like to elaborate a bit?

Why not, it works with Internet Explorer

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ; Match substring
WinSetTrans("Internet Explorer", "", 170) ; Make IE window semi-transparent.

Like this ?

WinSetTrans("firefox.exe", "", 125)

No. Some work with the following functions should get you there though :

- WinList

- WinGetProcess

- WinGetState

- WinSetTrans

If you have an idea what I meant by listing up those functions you should be able to make something

pretty fast. If you're lazy you can look up some UDFs that will do the at least the two first steps for you.

I know both myself and Smoke have made some functions that works around those..

Edit : Word replacement.

You 2 are obviously seeing something in this post that I am not.

I don't see him wanting to set the trans of windows, but the trans of the process itself (Like maybe how it shows in the task manager). But if it's just the windows of the process itself, sure that's been done.

I thought he just worded himself badly and that he wanted to set the transparency for a window

associated with a specified process.
