I dont know if this is possible

Hello everyone.

I would say im pretty new to AutoIt, but i have been working with it for about 3 weeks now.

There is a certain application i am tryin to make. Generally, i have it figured out, but there are a few things im not sure of. I dont know if it is because of Autoit limitations or my own noobidity.

The problems i am having are these.

1st and foremost, i am tryin to run a GUI, and internet explorer at the same time.

That at first is not a hard thing, i have acheived that.

But...

What i want to do is have them both run at the same time, and to only see the IE window through a "window" inside the GUI.

This way, the GUI has top most value, but you can still interact with the IE window at the same time. Plus i want both programs to close when the user presses the "x" button on the GUI.

2nd, most of the GUI buttons i will have, will start their own scripts. This two is not hard, i have made this happen.

But......

I seem to be having problems with looping the scripts until the user presses "ESC".

Like i said, i have only been working with AutoIt for about 3 weeks, so more than likely it is on behalf of my noobidity that i cannot seem to figure these problems out myself.

Ok, i have some great news.

After scouring this fourm's topics and what-not, i have indeed found out how to solve my first problem.

Thank you all sooo much, and just to let you know, i still need help looping(my second problem).

You might be able to do this by resizing/moving each section of the IE window( toolbar, and main body which I believe are actually separate controls in the window.)

if you make these both smaller, when the window is maximized, you'll have area in which to embed controls into.....

Run the AU3 Info tool and as you hover over each section you should be able to

figure out which controls to resize to make room for your GUI stuff, depending on how you want it to appear.

I just finished writing a UDF ("ANYGUI.au3") that you can use to embed your GUI into IE's window. it's in the "Scripts and Scraps" section under "ANYGUI.au3" Haven't tried IE controls myself, but if you can move/resize them then you shouldn't have any probs embedding your GUI
