#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Here it is, it turned out very nice and simple..

what it does:

press ctrl+space to hide the current window

you can show it by clicking ctrl+1

or if you already have another window hidden ctrl+2, etc.. (hide 4 windows max..)

if you press ctrl+enter you can see a nice gui with the hidden windows, click one to show it,,

press ctrl+backspace to delete the gui..

and press escape to exit.

Press right mouse button on a screenshot and then close this win... to close it.. or do this by the traymenu..

all bugs are fixed!!

Winhider:

WinHider.au3

(prev downloads: 24)

exe:

WinHider.exe

(prev downloads: 25)

All in one: (picture + source + exe)

WinHider.zip

I hope you like it.. :)

New functions:

shows all windows when you exit..

when it hides a window it writes the title to a log

when it shows all windows it reads the log and then shows those..

so there isn't a chance to lose a window :P

Interesting and nifty.

However, pressing CTRL-SPace then CTRL ETNER then do it again while you have one window in the "space selection window" will crash the app wtih a array error.

And the problem with that is that the windows are then lost.

For example, you have 2 messenger windows open, you hide both, the app crashes. Then you will have to restart messenger to get the conversation windows back.

I see, I will have a look on how to fix this..

and then theres another issue.. I want my ctrl+enter gui transparent I did this already but then the screenshot looks rubbish.. so then I asked on general help and support how to make a control fully visible but that didn't help really either.. So.. does anybody know how to make a control completely visible and the gui with some trans..?

Anyway, If you add more than 4 objects, none of the objects can be selected.

Sometimes i cannot add new objects.

And if you go into spaces without having any objects you are unable to get back without having to restart the app.

Seems cool now, tho you can still add 5+ windows but it only supports 4 which leads to suggestions.

Support for more than 4 windows.

Scale windows acording to Winsize/space so high windows won't be stretched.

But the coolest thing you could add, that updated UDF that was released for PNG support (been around for a long time i know).

Make a frame. Scale down the windows to 25/ScreenWidth and same for height.

Then make the window selector a popup instead of a fullscreen thing like spaces in OSX.

Just like:

The PNG stuff UDF is really easy to get up and working so it should be a easy task.

I don't really understand what you mean...

A... if you add 5 windows, you can only see 4.. sometimes even only 3 for some wierd reason.

So you should add support for more than just 4 windows.

B... To make it even more effective and less calculations you should enstead of the big white fullscreen GUI where you can select the windows, make a window like the one i posted on the picture where you can select the windows from.
