_GUICreateDlgFrame()

8 posts in this topic

With the rover`s example, I wrote a function _GUICreateDlgFrame(). But there is one small problem. The program is listed, when you press ALT-TAB. How do I remove it from there?

Thanks.

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>

global const $GCL_HICON = -14
global const $GCL_HICONSM = -34

_GUICreateDlgFrame('Test', 380, 160, -1, -1, 0, 0, GUICreate('Test_Parent'))
GUISetState()

do
until GUIGetMsg() = -3

func _GUICreateDlgFrame($sTitle, $iWidth = -1, $iHeight = -1, $iLeft = -1, $iTop = -1, $iStyle = 0, $iExStyle = 0, $hParent = 0)

    local $hWnd = GUICreate($sTitle, $iWidth, $iHeight, $iLeft, $iTop, BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_SYSMENU, $iStyle), BitOR($WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME, $iExStyle), $hParent)
    
    if (@error) or ($hWnd = 0) then
        return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    endif
    
    _WinAPI_DestroyIcon(_WinAPI_GetClassLong($hWnd, $GCL_HICON))
    _WinAPI_SetClassLong($hWnd, $GCL_HICON, 0)
    _WinAPI_SetClassLong($hWnd, $GCL_HICONSM, 0)
    
    return SetError(0, 0, $hWnd)
endfunc; _GUICreateDlgFrame

func _WinAPI_GetClassLong($hWnd, $nIndex)
    
    local $ret = DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'GetClassLong', 'hwnd', $hWnd, 'int', $nIndex)
    
    if (@error) or ($ret[0] = 0) then
        return 0
    endif
    return $ret[0]
endfunc; _WinAPI_GetClassLong

func _WinAPI_SetClassLong($hWnd, $nIndex, $dwNewLong)
    
    local $ret = DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'SetClassLong', 'hwnd', $hWnd, 'int', $nIndex, 'long', $dwNewLong)
    
    if (@error) or ($ret[0] = 0) then
        return 0
    endif
    return $ret[0]
endfunc; _WinAPI_SetClassLong

With $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW:

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>

global const $GCL_HICON = -14
global const $GCL_HICONSM = -34

_GUICreateDlgFrame('Test', 380, 160, -1, -1, 0, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, GUICreate('Test_Parent'))
GUISetState()

do
until GUIGetMsg() = -3

func _GUICreateDlgFrame($sTitle, $iWidth = -1, $iHeight = -1, $iLeft = -1, $iTop = -1, $iStyle = 0, $iExStyle = 0, $hParent = 0)

    local $hWnd = GUICreate($sTitle, $iWidth, $iHeight, $iLeft, $iTop, BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_SYSMENU, $iStyle), BitOR($WS_EX_DLGMODALFRAME, $iExStyle), $hParent)
   
    if (@error) or ($hWnd = 0) then
        return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    endif
   
    _WinAPI_DestroyIcon(_WinAPI_GetClassLong($hWnd, $GCL_HICON))
    _WinAPI_SetClassLong($hWnd, $GCL_HICON, 0)
    _WinAPI_SetClassLong($hWnd, $GCL_HICONSM, 0)
   
    return SetError(0, 0, $hWnd)
endfunc; _GUICreateDlgFrame

func _WinAPI_GetClassLong($hWnd, $nIndex)
   
    local $ret = DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'GetClassLong', 'hwnd', $hWnd, 'int', $nIndex)
   
    if (@error) or ($ret[0] = 0) then
        return 0
    endif
    return $ret[0]
endfunc; _WinAPI_GetClassLong

func _WinAPI_SetClassLong($hWnd, $nIndex, $dwNewLong)
   
    local $ret = DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'SetClassLong', 'hwnd', $hWnd, 'int', $nIndex, 'long', $dwNewLong)
   
    if (@error) or ($ret[0] = 0) then
        return 0
    endif
    return $ret[0]
endfunc; _WinAPI_SetClassLong

This works for me :)

$hiddenGUI = GUICreate('Test_Parent',0,0,0,0,0,$WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
_GUICreateDlgFrame('Test', 380, 160, -1, -1, 0, 0, $hiddenGUI )

and no other changes to your code.

I ran your code and it didn't appear...

I am using a replacement alt tab, but that shouldn't affect it...

Call GUISetState() or you mean it's actually succeeded in not appearing on the task-switch window? :)

I checked it out to test and see if i could help... and nothing came up!! I closed the replacement, and it now appears... and i am confused... I have looked into it, and I haven't set any exceptions that would apply to that window... but even if i disable them all, same result.

don't worry, its not your problem, neither does it doesn't answer yours.
