Quick Launch CMD 1 to Enable and 0 to Disable How To Do.

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

HI :)

I am new to AutoIT. And i want to make a Script to enable and disable Quick Launch over a cmd command like:

"C:\Quick Launch.exe" "1" // To Enlabe it.

<AND>

"C:\Quick Launch.exe" "0" // To Disable it.

Is this possible to make this if yes how. I found out how to make a script that change the settings if you click the .exe but not how i can do it with "1" and "0"

Run("Rundll32.exe SHELL32.DLL,Options_RunDLL 1")

WinWaitActive("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")

ControlClick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "Button2")

ControlClick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "Button5")

ControlClick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "Button11")

Hi Outbreaker,

1st Welcome to the AutoIt Forums! :idiot:

Some of the following tips may not apply to you, but it may make your life a bit easier here on the forum in the future.

CODE
  • Did you know that we have an awesome search feature?

    You can find many answers to your current questions, just by typing in the right search patterns.

  • A suggestion is to use the Advanced Search mode:

  • Type your specific search term in quotes.
  • Click the forum you want to search in (the one most likely to have your information would generally be the Example Script forum and or the General Help and Support Forum).
  • Click on "Search titles only" radio button.
  • Click perform search.
The above will help you narrow down your searches and prevent you from unneccesarily posting a new thread.

[*]Also, you should try to read the Sticky posts that are at the top of each of the AutoIt Forums you enter such as:

[*]Keep in mind, the help file will be your best friend, however you may find some of the tutorials written by some of our elite forum members helpful.

[*]Forum Etiquette:

  • Making a new thread:

    • Use the Search feature first to see if your question has already been answered.
    • Look in the help file as well before even thinking of posting (When what you want could be obtained by simply reading the help file, you don't generally get a good response from your AutoIt community).
    • Titles are very important here. 1 word titles or titles like "help me", "write something for me", "I'm a noob" etc... aren't tolerated.
    • Make sure you are posting in the correct forum:

      • General Help and Support:

        • This forum is for AutoIt related support questions only. If you have a question related to another language, or nothing at all to do with AutoIt then you need to post in the chat forum, or in that languages perspective forum.
      • Example Script:

        • This forum is for AutoIt scripts/executables only.
        • Source code is preferred but not necessary, you do have the right to just post the binary of your project if you wish.
        • Please don't post questions in this forum unless it's directly related to a thread already existing.
    • Use common sense when creating a new thread.

      Ask yourself if the title is descriptive enough to even interest someone (preferably those that know what they are talking about) to even look at your thread, let alone reply in it.

    • Think about how it would show in the search feature if someone were to look for something just like you are looking for (think of the keywords you used yourself and obviously didn't find anything (because we know you used the search feature :) ) and use those types of keywords in your title as well).
  • Thread content:

    • Be descriptive with your query. (Make sure we actually know what you want to do).
    • Show you've made an effort in coding what you want (provide the reproducer code (generally no more than 50 lines as people lose interest in debugging someones script for free)).
    • Don't talk in ebonics. A lot of the forum members are adults, and a lot of them know how to help you, but talk like a child, you'll be treated as such.
    • Don't ask for help making keyloggers, spam (even if it's to do as a prank), or anything that can be thought of as malicious. You'll more than likely have the thread locked by a moderator, and take a bashing from your fellow AutoIt community.
    • When posting code, use code boxes. This can be accomplished by using [code ]<content here>[/code ] (No spaces between the brackets []).

      Using code boxes will keep the indentation and make it easier to read for others to help you.

  • Bumping your threads:

    • Use common courtesy here.

      Keep in mind every time you bump your thread to the top of the forum, you knock the other threads down a notch.

      Everyone posting for help has just as much right for their threads to get read as you do.

      Because of that, do not bump your post more than once in a 24 hour period.

      A Bump is simply posting in your thread with nothing that pertains to your query with the sole purpose of moving it up.

      Deleting previous bumps, and posting new ones is not tolerated, and the moderators can find those deletions, so do yourself a favor and don't cross that line >_< .

  • Rude or obnoxious content:

    This falls pretty much under the common sense thing. If you use it (common sense) before posting, you won't have issues.

    • Don't use foul language, remember, a lot of the community is at work when they read these threads.
    • Don't provoke or instigate an argument with someone.
  • Double Posting:

    • It's understood that sometimes there's a lag in the system, and sometimes people don't see their post go up right aways so they post again.

      If this happens to you, simply notify a moderator with the report feature in the post, and politely ask them to delete it.

    • If you're just creating another topic because your original topic is not being answered the way you want or at all, this is not tolerated. You could lose your posting privileges all together over it.
  • Non-English languages

    • If English is not your primary language, please make an attempt to interpret (yourself or online) and post that interpretation.

      We have wonderful users from around the world, so after you've done your post in English, back it up with your question also in your native tongue (You may find your answer much quicker using both).

That's it for now, I hope you have a wonderful learning experience, and hope to see you contribute to the community as your knowledge grows.

This is one way of working with $CmdLine, but since it is an ordinary array there are lots of other ways. To test directly in SciTE press view>parameters (or press Shift+F8) and write 0 or 1.

If $CmdLine[0] = 1 Then
    Select
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 0
            MsgBox(0, "", "Your code that disables quicklaunch should be here")
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 1
            MsgBox(0, "", "Your code that enables quicklaunch should be here")
    EndSelect
EndIf

Edit: fixed 1 case which were wrong...

I was bored, try this code to change quick-launch with a language-independent method (yours would only work on english). I have never done this before but it seems to work for me.

The specific _SendMessage() was taken from here

#Include <SendMessage.au3>
Const $WM_USER = 0X400
Const $WMTRAY_TOGGLEQL = ($WM_USER + 237)

If $CmdLine[0] = 1 Then
    Select
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 0
            _SendMessage(WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]"), $WMTRAY_TOGGLEQL, 0, False)
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 1
            _SendMessage(WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]"), $WMTRAY_TOGGLEQL, 0, True)
    EndSelect
EndIf

Edit: fixed 1 case which were wrong...

Ok i have put your script in the SciTE than i have copyed the "SendMessage.au3" script form the link to "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include" and then i have press Shift+F8 and put 1 in it but nothing happened. :)

This script is really needed a lot of people asked for this in other forums how to do that with "QuickLaunch" and "Hide Taskbar" for ther pre-configured Windows. That's the only thing you can do over registry grrr. >_<

This is a 2nd warning, as your welcome to the forum has already warned you.

Do not delete a post, and post another to bump your posts. It's obvious you know how to edit a post, just do that.

Ther is only one problem it's the same code to enable it and disable it. (it's a checkbox option)

I am little bit lost. pinch.gif

EDIT:

Test the script for the Link you Posted. Couldn't find this topic over Search.

If i am not rong i must put your script and the other script together but how O_o

I am sorry but first setps are always hard to understand. wink.gif

Please don't do it again or your posting privileges will be revoked.

Ok if i press Shift+F8 in SciTE nothing happens at all. But if i Compile it to an .exe files and tip in CMD

"C:\test.exe" 1

OR

"C:\test.exe" 0

The Quick Launch gets disabled and enabled again lol.

Finally i found out how to do it:

If $CmdLine[0] = 1 Then
    Select
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 0
            Run("Rundll32.exe SHELL32.DLL,Options_RunDLL 1")
            WinWaitActive("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")
            ControlCommand("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "[ID:1107]", "UnCheck")
            ControlClick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "[ID:1]")
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 1
            Run("Rundll32.exe SHELL32.DLL,Options_RunDLL 1")
            WinWaitActive("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")
            ControlCommand("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "[ID:1107]", "Check")
            ControlClick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "[ID:1]")
    EndSelect
EndIf

But now i am also stuck at the same problem that i had with the VBScript i made. And that is if the CMD Windows Box or another Windows Box is over the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" then it doesn't work. Is ther no way around this. :)

Ok that's strange now if i use "Button" commands instead of "controlID" commands then i don't have this problem.

Is it possible to make this script also multilanguage compatible ?

If $CmdLine[0] = 1 Then
    Select
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 0
            Run("Rundll32.exe SHELL32.DLL,Options_RunDLL 1")
            WinWaitActive("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")
            ControlCommand("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "Button5", "UnCheck")
            ControlClick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "Button11")
        Case $CmdLine[1] = 1
            Run("Rundll32.exe SHELL32.DLL,Options_RunDLL 1")
            WinWaitActive("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties")
            ControlCommand("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "Button5", "Check")
            ControlClick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "", "Button11")
    EndSelect
EndIf
