hello!

I have been trying to hide a windo with the code:

Run("D:\DVD-making Program\FitCD.exe","D:\DVD-making Program",@SW_HIDE)

but the widnow will not hide...(it won't Minimize neither (while minimized it get's in the left top corner of the screen), but can be maximized :S)

thankfull for answers

This happens to many programs as they build the window and do not adhere the startup status.

Just do a WinWait() for the window that is shown and then a WinSetState() for the window to hide it.

thanks for answering...so is this right:

Run("D:\DVD-making Program\FitCD.exe","D:\DVD-making Program")
WinWait("FitCD v1.2.8")
WinSetState("FitCD v1.2.8","",@SW_HIDE)

it doesn't work :/ what have I done wrong?

If I replease HIDE with MAXIMIZE it works fine as usual and now even MINIMIZE works :)...but still HIDE doesn't :) why?

You should wait for visible window...

_WinWaitVisible("FitCD v1.2.8")
WinSetState("FitCD v1.2.8", "", @SW_HIDE)

Func _WinWaitVisible($sTitle, $sText, $iTime=0)
    Local $iTimer = -1
    If $iTime > 0 Then $iTimer = TimerInit()
    
    While Not BitAND(WinGetState($sTitle, $sText), 2)
        Sleep(10)
        If $iTime > 0 And (TimerDiff($iTimer) / 1000) >= $iTime Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
    
    Return Number(BitAND(WinGetState($sTitle, $sText), 2) = 2)
EndFunc

Nope... WinWaitActive() waits for the Window to become the Active window (gets the focus) ..
