Rollup Pro v16

Recommended Posts

crashdemons

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.

Current Script Version - 16

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

      An application is there which is created using vc++,mostly mfc.
       
      DOn't know the details completely.
       
      WHen I try to automate the control clicks for testing the UI.
      THe below control is not detected.
      As you can see, during UI operations I can click the elements one by one.
      But all the elements is selected as a whole set, when I use the Windowinfo tool.

       
      How to click this using AutoIT.?
       
      Please suggest.

      Hi dear
      This is the first include file I designed
      This work is especially directed to NVDA free screen reader users
      It contains a set of functions that enable you to control the program
      Such as forcing the program to read a custom text
      Force it to stop talking
      Find out if the program is running
      And show custom text in the Braille screen
      Available functions are
      _nvdaControllerClient_Load()
      to load the dll file
      _nvdaControllerClient_free()
      to UnLoad the dll file
      _nvdaControllerClient_SpeakText()
      to speak a custom text
      _nvdaControllerClient_brailleMessage()
      to show custom text in the Braille screen
      _nvdaControllerClient_cancelSpeech()
      to Force the NVDA  to stop talking
      _nvdaControllerClient_testIfRunning()
      to check if the NVDA is running
      important note :
      All of these functions depend on a nvdaControllerClient32.dll
      I've added it in the attachments, as well as a file for examples, and other files
      As the source and examples in other languages
      For those who wanted to download the free screen reader, this is the download link from the official website
      https://www.nvaccess.org/download/
      i hope you like this topic
      I hope you will try it and give me your opinions
      Thank you all members and administrators for their help
      now with the  Attachments

      I wrote a script a few months ago that was working at the time. When I tried it today it wouldn't retrieve any controls.  The application successfully launches, but I cannot figure out how to retrieve the control from the window that is launched. I'm on a windows 10 machine using AutoIt v3.3.14.2. The only thing I can think of that has changed is windows updates? Code is below, any help is greatly appreciated.    ; Notes: ; HandleError( handleToCheck, MsgToLogOnFailure, terminateAutoItOnFail ) : function that simply checks the handle and quits AutoIt if not present ; all of this works well FileChangeDir( $CLIENT_APPLICATION_DIR ); Run( "Client.exe" ) Local $hClient = WinWaitActive( $CLIENT_TITLE, "", 10 ) $terminateOnFail = 1 HandleError( $hClient, "LaunchClient::Error: Failed to launch client. Either timed-out or failed.", $terminateOnFail ) LogToFile( "Client launched, waiting for system to ready." ) Sleep( 5000 ) ; this part does not work ; $SYSTEM_INDICATOR is a global variable. I have tried these values: "SystemIndicatorWindow" (Text), "Qt5QWindowIcon101" (ClassNN), and ; "[CLASS:Qt5QWindowIcon; INSTANCE:101]" Local $hStatusIndicator = ControlGetHandle( $hClient, "", $SYSTEM_INDICATOR ) HandleError( $hStatusIndicator, "CheckStatus::Error: couldn't retrieve control: " & $SYSTEM_INDICATOR, $terminateOnFail ) This is what the spy reveals: 

       
      Edit: I just tried this code and it works for notepad++.
      FileChangeDir( "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\" ); Run( "notepad++.exe" ) Local $hNotePad = WinWaitActive( "new 1 - Notepad++", "", 10 ) If $hNotePad = 0 Or $hNotePad = -1 Then MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "Error getting app handle." ) EndIf Sleep( 1000 ) Local $hNewFileBtn = ControlGetHandle( $hNotePad, "", "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:1]" ) If $hNewFileBtn = 0 Or $hNewFileBtn = -1 Then MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "Error getting button handle." ) EndIf MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Success", "Success." )
