I wrote this application over the last couple of days because a friend was complaining that Windows needed a Roll-up button that minimizes a window to it's titlebar, aside from regular minimize.

(Note: you must actually activate a window to see the button.)

More than that - this button can be right-clicked to display and change information about a window quickly.

The information includes the basics like HWnd, Title, State(using state values, not flags), Transparency, Position, Dimensions and Processname/PID.

Note: You can find the Exit option by right-clicking the button as well.

***Grabby Movement***

To change the horizontal placement you can click the "grabby" button and move the mouse until the buttons are placed where you want them and then click the grabby button again to set them there.

OK, so the button is in the wrong place. It hovers over the minimize button, which is annoying.

Right-click the button and hit "change titlebar offset"

then increase the negative value to a larger negative value.

By default it's -74 (just left of minimize on "XP Classic" Visual Style)

but you could make it like -90 or so to fit your visual style.

Also, once this is changed, it will be saved in an INI for later so you don't have to continually change it

OK :)

By the way, your images aren't displayed, could be college blocking them..

Sighs, everybody picks on the free host. :(

Do these work instead? - second host doesnt allow off-site linking to images and this forum wont allow images relayed by PHP.

You'll have to make due without images if you can't see them in the first post already.

UPDATE:

-When clicking HWnd or other non-action options that normally copied, '&' characters that were used to shortcut keys are no longer copied into the clipboard.

-a Debug MsgBox is no longer shown after changing the position of the window

Update 7:

Added Grabby-Button movement,

simply click the grabby button once to have the mouse carry it to a new horizontal position.

(note: you must click the grabby button again to set the position)

I edited this post but somehow it went back one edit...? - Guess I'll edit it again.

Update 8:

Added Boundary checking on grabby movement:

If you go over an edge, the button will dock on that side.

If you go over the center, the button will dock proportional to the side it's closest to.

this will prevent hassling about with numbers just to get the dang thing to dock on the side you put it on.

Sorry for not posting back immediately about Update 9, I kinda dozed off and well...

Anyway,

Update 9:

Corrects a boundary conflict issue where the offset was reset by condition 1 of Update 8 but still checked under Condition 2 unnecessarily.

I like it. I might use it often! That is mostly because I am used to scroll mouse wheel up on title bar to roll up the window in Xubuntu! (It is actually pretty cool and simple).

I can do signature me.

If a window is maximized, the vertical arrow icon does not appear. Is this normal?

BTW: nice script!

Thanks,

-John

Yes, I made it so it wont appear in maximize or minimize states.

Something about changing the height of a maximum-height window just seems dangerous/wrong to me.

Additionally, if you maximized more than 1 window and rolled them all up, they'd get lost under one another :)

BTW - as long as there is an icon saved as @Tempdir&'\rollup.ico' Rollup pro wont check it twice

- you can substitute in any custom icon you want

- on a future update I plan to just to include and reference the icon file directly so it'll be easier to customize

      Hi! Can someone help me with this? I upgraded from SciTe Edit Lite to full version. Now every time I edit a script it opens on a new SciTe tab, but I want it opens on a new window like before the upgrade. Can someone help me with that? Thanks!!
    • By llssff
      My current script:
      ```
      $notepadWindow = RunWait('notepad.exe')
      ControlSend($notepadWindow, "Edit1", "", "abcde")
      WinSetState($notepadWindow, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
      ```
      I can't seem to get these three lines to work. Its supposed to run a notepad window, then enter "abcde", followed by minimizing it. 
      Currently it just opens and nothing happens.
      What am I doing wrong here?

      hello guys, please i need your help
      am trying to work with CreateWindowEx api, i created the window with it controls, also i setup the call back function
      i'am using WinMSGLoop to focus with the keyboard.
      here i have a problem, i hope that you can help me.
      on the controls i used the UDF that comme with the autoit, such as _GUIButton_Create, _GUIListBox_Create....
      but i can't find a STATIC control UDF, for that i used this

      local $h_ssrvlbl = _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx(0, "STATIC", "الخادم", BitOr($WS_VISIBLE, $WS_CHILD, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN), 250, 10, 100, 20, $hWnd)
      as you can see here, there is an arabic text, so here is the problem, the arabic text isn't show normally, what is the problem here?
      also i have  an other question about keyboard focus, when i used WinMSGLoop, it worked, but if i press alt+tab to switch windows or focus an other window and return back to my window, the focus of control is kill.
      can any one help me to solve that please?
      my code will be as file here with the include files
      i hope can any one help me here
      thanks in advance

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie
