Description

I'd like to be able to populate at least "Tasks" in the jump lists if I pin my complied Auto It app to the new Windows 7 Taskbar.

  • Resolution set to Rejected
  • Status changed from new to closed

So do it? There's this thing called the Windows API. I suggest looking into it.

Valik, I have seen you have closed several of these windows7 taskbar feature requests with the response that this should be implemented as UDF. You do realize that the taskbar api's are extremely none trivial to implement in autoit?

Forgot to fill in author on last message.

Whats your point? Whats stopping you or somebody else from writing a plugin, standard DLL or COM interface that provides extension points allowing AutoIt to hook into it? Not every single feature of the OS needs to be implemented in AutoIt's core.

While that's true, the same could be said of any feature in autoit.

The thing is, the taskbar api is meant to be a central point in graphical applications in windows 7. Giving autoit developers an easy to use interface for it would make auotit an even better tool for writing GUI's.

Not saying it's a must, but it might be worth looking over at least. The taskbar is a major change in windows 7 and maybe autoit should keep up?

Replying to monoceres:

Not saying it's a must, but it might be worth looking over at least. The taskbar is a major change in windows 7 and maybe autoit should keep up?

This statement is not a very fair statement to make. I wonder how many application domains are out there that can say the same thing about AutoIt just because we don't support their "important" feature.
