how to not have the GUI window appear in taskbar

Recommended Posts


ok I'm creating a gui that I want to creat a button in to float overtop a firefox window, but when I have firefox highligted the gui window vanishes under it, that's not what I'm wanting to do, can anyone advice me on how to keep the gui window always at the top, and after that is it possible to have it not show up on the task bar?

here is the coding so far

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("", 60, 23, 8, 370)

$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Good", 0, 0)

$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Bad", 33, 0)

GUISetState ()

While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()


Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


Case $msg = $Button_1

ShellExecute("Good.au3", "", @ScriptDir, "Run")

Case $msg = $Button_2

ShellExecute("Bad.au3", "", @ScriptDir, "Run")

If you use $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW as an extended style, the window will not show up in the taskbar...

GUICreate("", 60, 23, 8, 370,-1,$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
