action on widow when its minimised

Recommended Posts

tommygun101

Hey

Is there a way to perform an action on a window when it is minimised, like writing text onto a notepad when it is minimised in the taskbar?

I know you can write text into a notepad when it is active on the screen, there are meny examples of this , but not when it is still minimised

and not active.

I think performing actions on the window when its minimised would save processing power when you are dealing with a bitmap for example..

does anyone have any ideas?

thanx guys

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Radio Box Demo", 400,280)
GUISetState ()

While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        MsgBox(0, "", "Exiting !!",1)
         Exit
     Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_MINIMIZE
         FileDelete ("test.txt")
         FileWrite ("test.txt", "testing")
         MsgBox(0,"", "Dialog minimized",1)
         ShellExecute ("test.txt")
   EndSelect
WEnd
