Converting AutoHotKey to AutoIt3

Recommended Posts


I have an old AutoHotKey script I'm trying to figure out how to convert to AutoIt3. A couple of the functions seem easy enough to copy over, but others, such as the Dll ones, I have no clue how to make work in AutoIt3.

#SingleInstance force

GroupAdd, Excludes, Windows Task-Manager ahk_class #32770 
GroupAdd, Excludes, ahk_class _As12__TaskSwitchXP_TaskSwitchWnd_ 
GroupAdd, Excludes, ahk_class Progman 
GroupAdd, Excludes, ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd 

#IfWinNotActive, ahk_group Excludes 

hWnd := WinActive("A") 

ToggleFullScreen(ByRef hWnd) 
  ;IniFile := A_ScriptName ".tmp" 
  ;IniRead, Array, %IniFile%, Handles, %hWnd%, Empty 
  If 1 ;(Array="Empty") 
      hMenu := DllCall("GetMenu", "UInt", hWnd) 
      WinGet, Maximized, MinMax 
      DllCall("SetMenu", "UInt", hWnd, "UInt", 0)  
      WinSet, Style, -0xC00000 
      WinSet, Style, -0x800000
      WinSet, Style, -0x40000
      WinMove, , , 0, 0, 1680, 1038
      ; (1 680 - 24) / 1 047 = 1.58166189
      ;IniWrite, %hMenu%`,%Maximized%, %IniFile%, Handles, %hWnd% 
      ;StringSplit, Array, Array, `, 
      ;hMenu := Array1 
      ;Maximized := Array2 
      ;DllCall("SetMenu", "UInt", hWnd, "UInt", hMenu) 
      ;WinSet, Style, +0xC00000
      ;WinSet, Style, +0x800000
      ;WinSet, Style, +0x40000
      ;If !(Maximized) 
      ;  { 
      ;    WinRestore 
      ;  }
      ;IniDelete, %IniFile%, Handles, %hWnd% 

Just in case you're curious why I'm trying to do this, it's because I have some other code in AutoIt3, and I want to merge them.

Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated :3

Seems like the function changes the window style, moves and maximizes it (and vice versa).

Use WinMove() and WinSetState() for the last two operations, for the first operation look up



in the UDF help-file, no need to make the dll calls yourself. Maybe the style $WS_POPUP will look good for fullscreen, but chose yourself (or look up the win styles used in WindowsConstants.au3).
