minimize unminimze

Recommended Posts

Im making something for a program.

When the program "Brood War" minimizes i want it to pause the program.

When the program "Brood War" unminimizes i want it to unpause the program.

I have a command that pauses it manually like.

Global $Paused
HotKeySet("^{SPACE}", "Paused")

Func Paused()
    $Paused = NOT $Paused
    While $Paused
        sleep(100)
    WEnd
EndFunc

Its not working.

I have 2 seperate programs.

1st program- the one that works with the game.

2nd program- the actually game thats running.

When the 2nd program minimizes i want the 1st program to pause itself.

When the 2nd program unminimizes i want the 1st program to unpause itself.

yes the window title is brood war

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Ummm ....made the assumption that SW_MINIMIZE= 16 but it is 6

so this should work... (demo with notepad):

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
Run('notepad')

while 1
    While BitAND(WinGetState('- Notepad',''),16)
        sleep(500)
        SplashTextOn('','Sleeping',150,50,1,1)
    WEnd
    SplashTextOn('','Running',150,50,1,1)
    sleep(500)
WEnd

it works with pausing ect but it doesnt cary out my other commands

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Don't tell me you just inserted this example in your running code .... :lmao:

The example is to just a proof of concept....

you need to apply this concept to your own code since you are the only one that knows it.

Just to show the logic:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
while 1
    While BitAND(WinGetState('brood war',''),16)
        sleep(500)
      ; code to perform while minimized
    WEnd
  ;
  ; put here your code you want to perform while window is not minimized    
  ;
WEnd
