custom border, mouse to fast for it?

Recommended Posts

hey.. ive been creating a little "Addon" type thing for windows xp home... (lol, maybe ill just say program, because it probably wont be anything close to an addon :huh:) and ive been using josbe's great test AxWindow style.. ive got all the controls right, like the cut, exit, minimize... except the custom border is a label, and basically, ive used josbes structure of his code for like the $x_offset etc... and stuff... but when i click the label (custom border), then the window moves with the mouse until the border is pressed again, but moving it too fast, causes the mouse to be on the desktop, and not the border... but in the AxWindow demo, that doesnt happen, could anyone spot whats wrong here please?!?! thanks a milllion! :(:D

Global $iscut = 0

eh, while im at it... i rember someone posted in Chat a long time ago, about how we could execute commands from the command prompt, and im pretty sure you were the one with the nice example (again;)), or it could have been this-is-me, but instead of starting a new thread, ill ask in here...

how do i execute an autoit command from command line, or like batch file, this is how i would write a batch file for it...

cd C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe
autoit3.exe "msgbox(0, 'test', 'haha')

but apparently, that doesnt work... ive tried the @ComSpec macro, ive tried _RunDOS... im not so good with using the command line with autoit, suggestions?

I cleaned up your script using Tidy and then I tried to make it work.

In the end it didn't even move, so I gave up.

ABout your other thing

These both work.

Run('C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe /c "msgbox(0, ''test'', ''haha'')"')


RunWait('C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe /c "msgbox(0, ''test'', ''haha'')"')

what about the new stdin/out functions wouldn't those make it so you could read output too?
