Re: +Parent auto-activates even when NoActivate Topic is solved

Thank you for pointing out the SWP_NOZORDER flag. I was able to solve my problem by changing the z-order of the child window with the "WinSet Top" - so there's no need to use that "repeated +PARENT call" trick! So I can only assume that adding extra +PARENT option for a WS_CHILD window (a window wit...

Re: +Parent auto-activates even when NoActivate Topic is solved

Thank you, it solves the problem of "stolen focus". But there's one more related issue. It took me quite some time to figure out where's the problem. My goal is to create a red window border using "WinSet Region" and +PARENT option. The initial problem was that I was able to see the border but the w...

Re: Strange situation: "++" VS "+1" Topic is solved

It surely would be nice to round up everything by having someone to agree/disagree on my last comments. I'm just trying to figure out what's happening under the AHK hood.
Anyways, thanks for every reply.

Re: graphics: create bmp files from scratch

Hi there, it's an old topic, and it's very well explained and documented, but while rewriting it myself I found out that the least clear line is: VarSetCapacity(vData, 54+vSize+1, 0) To be specific, that "+1", which, as I understand is explained by the lines: ;the +1 below is there because we insert...

Re: Strange situation: "++" VS "+1" Topic is solved

Thank you very much, swagfag , I'm reevaluating my variable scopes now, following your recommendations. But when I change " If (actWndId == hGuiImg%A_Index%) " to " If (actWndId == hGuiImg1 ) " then the script works as expected. After reading your guides I understand that no matter how I name the va...

Re: Strange situation: "++" VS "+1" Topic is solved

Thank you for your comments. I guess you are right - there should be parentheses for IF statement in my code, and "++" provides correct result only because of it's backward compatibility property. Only now I understand that I have failed to capture the problem properly... I have tried to minimize an...

Hi there, I would like to ask someone to share some guidelines for differentiating dynamic variable definitions and pseudo-arrays .

Re: Key-press for a hotkey of a key-release Topic is solved

Thanks boiler for the questions - you got me thinking in a right direction: I have just realized that Hotkey function turns off not only Hotkey function created hotkeys but hotkey labels as well! It seems I have missed that in documentation. So it's obvious why we would see only one MsgBox after mul...

Thanks boiler for the idea about the hotkey modifiers and input levels. Here's your code updated, where you can trigger the MsgBox by pressing the F1 key. LButton::MsgBox, Hello #InputLevel 1 F1::Send, {LButton} Esc::ExitApp Now regarding my original question - I'm still convinced that it's all abou...
