IE Window Hide/Show

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

In the script i have now right now i am using this...

$W_IE = _IECreate("http://www.autoitscript.com/", 0, 0)
$W_title = _IEPropertyGet($W_IE, "title")
WinSetState($W_title, "", @SW_SHOW)

But say i have the same window open in firefox,

or even in IE it will show that window instead

how can i do something like this:

_IEPropertySet($W_IE, "state", "show")

and have it work?

Thanks

Try this:

$W_IE = _IECreate("http://www.autoitscript.com/", 0, 0)
$W_hwnd = _IEPropertyGet($W_IE, "hwnd")
WinSetState($W_hwnd, "", @SW_SHOW)

I Prefer dale's answer...

because there is no possible mess up,

and it is actually an IE function

but would it work if i wanted to hide it too?

so:

_IEAction($W_IE, "hidden")

THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU!

You learn something new everyday. I haven't used the _IE* functions since internet died at home. ;)

Use "invisible" instead of "hidden". And use the help file. It has all the information.
