Show a hidden taskbar?

Recommended Posts

I have a script that i want to have popup alert messages near the tray icons, like some Windows apps and Security porgrams do. I can get the box to show, but it looks 'odd' if the taskbar isn't showing because it then floats to far up from the bottom of the screen. Does anyone know how to make the taskbar come up? I've been trying for ages. Here's my code:

; Set Options
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Opt( "TrayAutoPause", 0 )
Opt ("WinTitleMatchMode", 4 )
;OPt( "TrayMenuMode", 5 )

;Call the updater to Debug...
Call( "updateAlert", "News!" , "Test Test Test Test Test Test Test Test")

; Create update alert GUI
Func updateAlert( $title = "", $alertText = "" )
    If $title <> "" Then $title = " - " & $title
    $alertGUI = GUICreate ( "Update" & $title, 150, 125, @DesktopWidth-180, @DesktopHeight-180, $WS_POPUP + $WS_DLGFRAME )
    GUICtrlCreateLabel ( $alertText, 0, 0, 150, 125 )
    GUISetBkColor( 0xDDDDBB )
    DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "AnimateWindow", "hwnd", $alertGUI, "int", 250, "long", 0x00040008);slide-in from bottom
    ; Some attempts to get that taskbar up...
    ; WinActivate( "Update" & $title )
    ; TraySetState ( 4 )
    ; WinFlash( "Update" & $title )
    ; WinActivate("classname:Shell_TrayWnd", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    ; Wait 5 secs, then leave message
    Sleep ( 5000 )

Any help is deeply appreciated: I've been searching he forums and working on this a long time

The way I make the taskbar pop up is to move the cursor to the screenheight + 1.

MouseMove(1,@screenheight + 1)
