disable animation when maximize/minimize a window

Recommended Posts

Laetterman

hello,

is there a way to disable the animation when you click 'TestGui' in the taskbar to minimize or maximize the window?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$gui = GUICreate("TestGui", 100, 100, @DesktopWidth/2, @DesktopHeight/2, -1, -1)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd

it is the window animation when maximizing/minimizing. i found out that it there is a key in the registry

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\desktop\WindowMetrics

key "MinAnimate" - set it to 0 (off) or 1 (on):

maybe it is set off at your computer. it shows a short animation when maximizing from the taskbar to the window, or the other way round when minimizing... hard to explain in english.. saw this animation not only at my computer...

Try to write to the registry on minimize event (see RegWrite() function in help file).

Somthing like this:

If GuiGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_MINIMIZE Then RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\desktop\WindowMetrics", "MinAnimate", "REG_SZ", 0)

Not sure if this will work, maby you need write it to registry when script is start, and also you can try to change the behaviour of some events, to manipulate manualy the minimize process (see Opt("GUIEventOptions", 1).

hard to explain in english

You can explain on russian, i will understand :shocked: Edited by MsCreatoR

What operating system are you using? And do you want to disable animation for all windows, or just your one program? Care to explain why? I don't understand why you'd want to.

You should use SystemParametersInfo to change windows minimize/maximize animation. If you make the change to registry it won't update the changes before system restart.

Here is function you can use to disable or enable the animation.

_wndMinAnimation(False)

#region - _wndMinAnimation
;===============================================================================
;
; Description:  : Toggles wndMinAnimation on or off.
; Parameter(s):  : $value - True or False
; Requirement:  : -
; Return Value(s): : -
; User CallTip:  :
; Author(s):  : Eemuli
; Note(s):   : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms724947(v=vs.85).aspx
;
;===============================================================================

Func _wndMinAnimation($value = True)

Local Const $SPI_SETANIMATION = 0x0049
Local Const $SPI_GETANIMATION = 0x0048
Local Const $tagANIMATIONINFO = "uint cbSize;int iMinAnimate"

Local $struct = DllStructCreate($tagANIMATIONINFO)
DllStructSetData($struct, "iMinAnimate", $value)
DllStructSetData($struct, "cbSize", DllStructGetSize($struct))[/indent]

$aReturn = DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'SystemParametersInfo', 'uint', $SPI_SETANIMATION, 'int', DllStructGetSize($struct), _
   'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($struct), 'uint', 0)[/indent]

EndFunc   ;==&gt;_wndMinAnimation

#endregion - _wndMinAnimation

Eemuli,

Once you get above a certain number of posts (I can never remember if it is 5 or 10 and I am too busy to go and look on the server to find out) you will find an "Edit" button appearing at bottom right of the post which will allow you to amend your previous posts. And if you edit the first post of a topic and select the "Use Full Editor" option, you can also amend the thread title. :)
