Child GUI That prevents access to visible parent?

3 posts in this topic

This is probably just a matter of finding the right combination of styles but I haven't had any luck yet.

How do i created a child gui that has an on top attribute as compared to it's parent.

And prevents a access to it's parent.

To make things simpler create a gui window that behaves like this msgbox.

Thanks,

Kenny

$1 = GUICreate("")
GUISetState()
MsgBox(0,"","",0,$1)
Exit

Hi, this doesn't appear to be a style.

This is information from the message box:

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:  
Class:  #32770
Position:   591, 364
Size:   104, 88
Style:  0x94C803C5
ExStyle:    0x00010101
Handle: 0x004B038A

Then I make a GUI with the same styles:

$1 = GUICreate("")
GUISetState()
GUICreate("",104,88,-1,-1,0x94C803C5,0x00010101,$1)
Sleep(5000)
Exit

and it doesn't recreate the same effect.

You will probably end up checking which window is active and then activating the one behind it.

You need to disable your main gui to achieve the effect you want:

$1 = GUICreate("Parent")
GUISetState()
$2 = GUICreate("Child",250,104,-1,-1,-1,-1,$1)
GuiSetState(@SW_DISABLE,$1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $2)
Sleep(5000)
Exit

Just remember to enable the parent once the child is closed.
