Right click on top

8 posts in this topic

right click on a windows in addition to the usual things like "Restore, Move, Size, Minimize, Maximize & Close", I would like to have "Always on Top".

A few applications already have this feature available, but not all.

Any possibility of doing this with autoit ?

I am not quite sure I am understanding what you are asking...

If you are asking if AutoIt can send right mouse clicks then that is a yes. If you are asking if AutoIt can manipulate a window via maximize, minimize, and so on the answer is yes. If you are asking if AutoIt can make a certain window be "Always On Top" I would assume the answer is yes, but for a lack of knowledge of the language yet I cannot fully answer that question if indeed that is what you are asking.

The answer to your question is no. He wants to be able to add items to the system right-click menu on the titlebars of his or other applications. AutoIt cannot modify the system menus of anything at the present.


Who else would I be?

I use the program PowerMenu to add "Always On Top" and "Minimize to Tray"

For a scripted solution, you could use hotkeys to make the active window on top:

HotKeySet("^!q", "Terminate")
Func Terminate()
   Exit
EndFunc

HotKeySet("^!t", "TopMost")
Func Topmost()
   WinSetOnTop("","",1)
EndFunc

HotKeySet("^!n", "Normal")
Func Topmost()
   WinSetOnTop("","",0)
EndFunc


While 1
   sleep(100)
Wend
Exit

Would you know of a registry tweak that would do it ?

Oops, it should be Func Normal()

I didn't test this code before posting :)
