#2118 closed Bug (No Bug)

bug when launching a command Line program using @SW_HIDE

Reported by: Le solutionneur Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: @SW_HIDE flag run Cc:


Using the command run(a"_command_line_program.exe", @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE)

Don't works: the command line program don't launch but with

$pid = run(a"_command_line_program.exe", @ScriptDir)
$Name_of_window = Pid_to_name_of_the_window($pid)
WinSetState($Name_of_window, "", @SW_HIDE)

This one works flawlessly but the window shows up about half second.

I think it's a bug, the app should run even with the @SW_HIDE flag.

And that's not a problem of mine since the second version works.

Please fix it and thanks for support.

Care to provide a real-world failing example?
Which error do you get?

It's an application's choice whether it honors the show flag or not. Most applications do, some do not.

An example is SciTE editor which does not honor

Additionals informations:

It should force the application to be hidden just like WinSetState (or a flag to decide to force it or no)

It's very annoying that many apps don't honor this and so we've to do the stuff I shown which make the window appear a few seconds.

Yet, it's an enhancement, not a bug anymore.
