help, how to minimize icq

9 posts in this topic

Hi @all!

I´ve got a problem. I want to a script to minimze icq when it starts. But I only find exit functions for that.

The script should look if there is the process "ICQLite.exe" and then minimizes the icq-programm.

How can I realize that?

Thanks for every help!

It is easier just to use WinSetState("ICQ Window Title","",@SW_MINIMIZE) to minimize windows.

If you are hellbent on using a process name, you can use this function to get the name of the window by providing the process. Then once you use the below function to get the name, use WinSetState() to minimize the window.

A function for determining the window title based on a process:

Func _ProcessGetWin($aPID, $i_ReturnArray = 0)
    Local $aWinList = WinList()
    Local $aReturnValue = ''
    $aPID = ProcessExists($aPID)
    For $icount = 1 To $aWinList[0][0]
        If WinGetProcess($aWinList[$icount][0]) = $aPID And BitAND($aWinList[$icount][1], 2) = 2 Then
            $aReturnValue = $aWinList[$icount][0] & @LF
        EndIf
    Next
    If $i_ReturnArray = 0 Then
        Return $aReturnValue
    ElseIf $i_ReturnArray = 1 Then
        Return StringSplit(StringTrimRight($aReturnValue, 1), @LF); Returns an Array
    Else
        SetError(1)
        Return 0
    EndIf
EndFunc

that´s the way i did it:

$example = _ProcessGetWin("ICQLite.exe")

MsgBox(0, "", $example)

The result was a "M". I think that´s wrong.

This is the best way to do it:
