Beginner looking for Help

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone

I just came across AutoIT and was wondering if something i'm trying to achieve is even possible and if you guys could help a noob out with this :).

I would like to create an executable that when launched has a hidden/invisible gui but has a windows taskbar button entry (not the system tray).

If at all possible, i would like to be able to change that buttons title and icon at any given time. Or atleast change the icon on start to a specified .ico file.

I then would like to to intercept the events on that button (maximize, minimize, close) so i can send them to another application (simply by calling a little helper utilty i have).

Is this possible? And if so, how do i achieve this, since i have no idea where to start :)

Thanks a bunch for all your help!

#include <GuiToolBar.au3> ;; This is for the toolbar (_GUICtrlToolbar_*) function

HotKeySet('{ESC}', '_EXIT')

Global $hGui = GUICreate('Title', -200, -200, 0, 0)

While 1

Func _EXIT()
    If Not WinActive($hGui) Then
        HotKeySet('{ESC}', '_EXIT')

The help file might 'help' from here.
