How to "untray" MSN?

6 posts in this topic

hi,

WinSetState("Windows Live Messenger", "", @SW_SHOW)
WinActivate("Windows Live Messenger", "")

does not work while my msn is only running in traybar, so how do i set it to @SW_SHOW when it is only in tray?

Try @SW_RESTORE instead of @SW_SHOW

Tried it by monitoring the msnmsgr.exe process windows and when you close the Windows Live Messenger window, it doesn't just hide it. MSN deletes the window and when you display it it's back with a new HWnd value.

Try making your own hide function for it without closing it with the default MSN method, that way you can display it yet again since it's just hidden, not deleted.

Hope that helped.
