Gui that doesn't appear in the task bar

4 posts in this topic

Can anyone give me the style/ex-style combo for a GUI that doesn't appear in the taskbar?

Please note: there is no parent child relationship. This GUI will be the only gui for the script.

$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW 0x00000080 Creates a tool window; that is, a window intended to be used as a floating toolbar. A tool window has a title bar that is shorter than a normal title bar, and the window title is drawn using a smaller font. A tool window does not appear in the taskbar or in the dialog box that appears when the user presses ALT+TAB. If a tool window has a system menu, its icon is not displayed on the title bar. However, you can display the system menu by typing ALT+SPACE.

Or if you want your GUI to have normal look, make it a child of another hidden GUI.

$dummy = GUICreate("Hidden")
GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, -1)
$maingui = GUICreate("Main",-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,-1, $dummy)

Exactly what I was looking for. I knew about the tool window but it didn't serve my purpose.
