Old script to hide unusued tray icons broken with Win10 update

I have an ancient script written by Sean several years ago that clears out all old tray icons. For instance if you terminate an AHK script or any other program with a tray icon, it will remove the icon from the system tray. The full script is shown below, although it's really just cleanup of somethi...

Re: Hot to make a menu horizontal instead of vertical

DOH!! You're exactly right. Thanks.

I had tried that, but I made the mistake of not setting the width on the test window, so it was just vertical because it was wrapping. Setting window width fixed it ;)

SOLVED: How to make a menu horizontal instead of vertical

I'd like to make a topline menu like you'd see in Notepad in an AHK Gui. It's easy to create the menu with something like this: Menu, DocsMenu, Add, Doctype 1, DocsMenu Menu, DocsMenu, Add, Doctype 2, DocsMenu Menu, MainMenu, Add, &Help , Menu_Help Menu, MainMenu, Add, &Documents, :DocsMenu ...

Re: Word VBA "For...Each" to AHK COM script, help.

Yes, you're right there. I find that most MS COM in general is 0..n-1 except for Office Interop, which is mostly 1..n because most of it started out as VBA. Don't count on it though, because I've seen 0..n-1 here and there.

Re: Word VBA "For...Each" to AHK COM script, help.

Good catch. You're correct that it doesn't have a .Length parameter, but it also won't index from the Ranges object. You have to use Ranges.Item[n] and it's 1.nn instead of 0..n-1. This works: App := ComObjActive("Word.Application") Ranges := App.ActiveDocument.StoryRanges Loop % ranges.Co...

Re: Does AutoHotKey still operate within Citrix windows?

Tank is correct. What you're seeing when you start a Citrix session is the Citrix client - not your application, and it doesn't expose much of anything you can reliably automate from the client. You can try to find things on the screen with ImageSearch, but it's really unreliable because there are t...

Re: Citrix Client Object

It appears to be a simple Active-X Object, so you can probably just hit it with ComObjCreate. I'm doing some Citrix work as we speak, so I may take a look at it. I'll report back if I learn anything useful.

UNTESTED : I didn't test this in your example, but I've used it before for COM enumeration with some success. This is a script I found on the forum some time ago, but don't know who wrote it. ComObjEnum(obj) { if ComObjType(obj) & 0x2000 ; if *obj* is a SafeArray return, obj else if ComObjType(...

Re: Help with RegexMatch and text from file

One other thing to watch out for is the difference between CRLF and LF only line ends. Code in inline variables typically has only LF at the end of each line (`n), while code read from disk will sometimes have CRLF and sometimes will have LF only, depending on how the file was written and read. Easy...

Embed WinWord in GUI

Anyone know if it's possible to embed a Word viewer in a GUI control. Back in the VB6 days there was an OLE Container Control that could embed Word documents without the menus, but that capability is deprecated and seems hard to find. I don't have VB6 readily available anymore to experiment with. I'...

Re: Send multiple keys?

Good explanation. The only thing I would add is that if the string of text might contain anything that could be a special character, such as ^!#+{} , the second Send should really be a SendRaw , which sends the string as raw text without special processing , or Send {Raw} which disables special proc...

Re: New Home page up

I'm digging the new page. Very clean design. The AutoHotkey v2 link is a little confusing. It points to an Alpha Branch of AutoHotkey_L which may be V2 but it doesn't give anyone any sense of what it's about. That's the only link I found to be confusing. Might also be worth pointing out that Iron AH...

Re: How to combine multiple scripts in one?

I think the last post was correct. Memory usage is trivial, but it still is a lot nicer to have everything in one script. I have one script with a couple thousand lines that I keep running all the time, and I like that better than having a lot of small ones. I would basically start with the biggest ...

Re: In use file/folder Topic is solved

Agree on using handle.exe as mentioned above. I've been using it for years, and it works in most but not all cases. It always seems to work if a file is being held open by the local file, but doesn't always work when a file is open across the network. It is however the best solution I've found. One ...

Re: AutoHokey Search - (Google)

It looks like the problem is with the Ghostery addin. It's an addin that blocks most ad trackers, so it looks like something you're doing in the page .JS is triggering it. I haven't looked at the page source to see what it is or if it's legitimate, but disabling that adding makes it work.

Re: AutoHotkey_L Fork With Improved Debugging Support

That makes sense. It will take more changes to the code than I was hoping for, but they're all low risk changes and your suggestion is better. I'll do it when I fix Unicode and 64bit.
