Sorry to bug you but the tabs don't take up the WinXp theme. Rajats SGUI tabs supports WinXp's look (in the design view) so I suppose it can be done.

tabs don't take up the WinXp theme

That's intentional. The problem with themed tab controls is that they have a "fading gradient" background, at least under the XP/Luna theme. This backbround requires either that the tab's sub-controls be children of a separate window inside the tab, or that other difficult measures be taken. Otherwise, the backgrounds of the controls do not exactly match the background of the tab and it doesn't look right.

Of course, you could argue that having an unthemed tab control alongside a bunch of themed other controls doesn't look right either. If anyone feels this way, please post here.

actually i've compiled it on 1.22... 1.23 was out but i didn't have the time then to do even the basic testing after recompiling again. sorry. but except for the tab look, i suppose it shouldn't affect anything.

Hmm, the 'AutoHotkey' text is appearing under my compiled scripts like before (which was removed for a while). Not to be mean but when I make scripts with AutoHotkey I wouldn't like to advertise anything else. If it's possible could it be removed?

I've updated the installer to fix that; the version resource is now blank as intended. Thanks for catching it.

Is it possible to add a "No Decompile" option to the compiler? (I thought it had one before, but i could be mistaken)

If you want to prevent anyone from decompiling your script, including yourself, specify a long random password when compiling.

Improved ControlClick to optionally click at a set of coordinates rather than a specific control.

Added sub-commands "Drive Lock" and "Drive Unlock". Locking a drive prevents its eject feature from working. [thanks RG]

If you have a few minutes to spare and you happen to have an IDE CD or DVD writer on Windows 9x (I've already tested XP), please test the following with it and let me know if the drive is actually locked:
Drive, Lock, D:   ; <<< Change this drive letter to suit your system.
if ErrorLevel = 1
{
     MsgBox There was a problem.
     return
}
MsgBox The drive is now locked.  Please attempt to eject it.
Drive, Unlock, D:   ; <<< Change this drive letter to suit your system.
MsgBox The drive is now unlocked.

Your drive probably has to support writing; otherwise it probably lacks this feature. Is this the case?

I tested the Script on my laptop (2000 with SP4) which has a DVD+RW burner in it, but assumed with the way most laptop cd/dvd drives are that it would eject without a problem, which it did. So I also tested it on a desktop computer (2000 with SP4) that has a IDE CD Burner in it, and it also ejected without a problem.

thanks,
beardboy

But is your drive a burner?

So I also tested it on a desktop computer (2000 with SP4) that has a IDE CD Burner in it, and it also ejected without a problem.

So you're saying you were able to manually eject the tray when the drive was supposedly locked? Did you change the drive letter from D to the correct letter for your system? (sorry I forgot to mention that originally) Did it say "there was a problem" (i.e. ErrorLevel 1)?

If it's still non-functional, can you try these:
- perhaps you have to have a disc in it for it to be locked
- perhaps it even requires a blank disc

The above script works on my CDRW on XP even without a disc in the drive.

Finally, does anyone have an IDE burner on Windows 9x? It would be good to get it tested on there because Windows 9x requires completely different code to lock the drive.

Thanks.
