Run minimized

4 posts in this topic

I got a script wich starts my music program minimized, but it takes the focus for a little moment.

Is there any way to start the program without taking the focus, run in background or something else?

My script:

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)
Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe")
WinWait("foobar2000 v0.9.5")
WinSetState("foobar2000 v0.9.5", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

I tried this one too:

Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

Or this:

ShellExecute(@ProgramFilesDir & "\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe", "", "", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

But either one doesn't minimize the prog, just run it.

Any other method?

hello, i don't know if this can help but i think you can give a left-click on the desktop to take out the focus from the music program

mousegetcursor()
MouseClick("left", 1000, 500);make sure this is somewhere on the desktop

The @SW_MINIMIZE parameter can only control how the program is STARTED. If the program itself steals focus after it is kicked off, the AutoIt script that ran it is no longer in control of that (think of how annoying so many Microsoft apps like IE and Outlook are about stealing focus repeatedly). AutoIt can START it minimized but doesn't force it to STAY minimized. You could re-minimize the window continuously in a tight loop, but since you didn't @SW_HIDE it, you presumably want to be able to restore it from the task bar.

:)
