Firing WinMinimize untill window is minimized

12 Aug 2018, 00:54

Code: Select all

Process, wait, Boostnote.exe, 1
NewPID = %ErrorLevel%
if NewPID = 0
{
	Run, "C:\Users\Alexander\AppData\Local\boost\Boostnote.exe",, Min, PID
	WinWait, Boostnote
	Sleep, 10000
	WinMinimize
}

return
I use Sleep now to successfully minimize the window on startup (this script launches on startup via task scheduler). WinWait is somehow not working. Is it possible to loop WinMinimze untill my window is actually minimized?

It looks like an electron app, so just use the --minimized flag.

Code: Select all

Run, % "C:\Users\Alexander\AppData\Local\boost\Boostnote.exe  --minimized"
or without quotes and a percent sign (these two are equal)

Code: Select all

Run, C:\Users\Alexander\AppData\Local\boost\Boostnote.exe  --minimized

Tip: Try to avoid the electron framework, which is the unholy synthesis of Node.js + Chromium.

Sadly, but --minimized has no effect on it.

Have you tried WinWaitActive? It seems to work.
