Getting The Display From An External .EXE (Solved)

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

how would i go about getting the display from an external .exe file

for example if i have a program like msn how would i get the display from that program and put it on a form i have.

is there a function to get the display from an app?

the reason i ask is because i want to make what you may call a management app, where i can put all of my usual programs that i run when i start my pc into one form on some tabs, to rgonist it a little better, and it will all be in one place

hope this is possible

Thanks

Interpreters have great power!Although they live in the shadow of compiled programming languages an interpreter can do anything that a compiled language can do, you just have to code it right.

ill explain a different way maybe it was to hard to understand, i want to take a section of a window, and display it on my form, or remove the boarder from the window and display it next to it, so wherever the form goes that window goes aswell

hope someone can help

if you mean skinning your program you can use xskin.au3 which you can search for in the forums

Take a look at _WinAPI_SetParent, as it will be what you will need to "embed" the application into your GUI.

To remove the border, look at _WinaAPI_SetWindowLong()
