Taskbar Properties

Recommended Posts


Can anybody help me on how to access the Taskbar properties.

I know that it's normally done by right clicking on the task bar. But How can i do it from within an AutoIt script?

Thxs for help

According to this site you can use a vbs file....

So here's a coded workaround in AutoIt..... There should be simpler rundll shell32.dll solution, but I couldn't find it.... Watch out for word wrap in the following:

$filename = "foo.vbs" ;create a temporary vbs file
If FileExists($filename) Then FileDelete($filename)
FileWriteLine($filename, 'Dim objShell : Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") : objShell.TrayProperties')
RunWait('WScript.exe "' & $filename & '"')

; Optionally bring window to foreground
WinWait("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")
WinActivate("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")

thxs so far ... I'll give it a try. As I don't know any vbs-stuff I'd still prefer a genuine AutoIt solution ....So any other ideas are appreciated.
