hello

can you tell me please a program/script that will autofocus/autoraise/activate the window by hovering over its button in the taskbar in WinXP?

tweakui doesnt work with taskbar buttons and I basically need it to work ONLY with taskbar buttons

thanks!

re-reading your post, i realized that i didn't register the taskbar button thingy completely.. KatMouse can't activate a window by hovering on the taskbar button.. however, a small AHK script could do that.. i'm going to check if it's not already on Skrommel's arsenal.. smiley

ok, here is one by Skrommel - MouseActivate.. smiley it sends mouse-clicks when left inactive on a window.. maybe this can be modified to trigger only when the mouse is on the taskbar only..

Auto-raise / mouse hover

Thanks. Updating to the latest version fixed it. But this script doesn't work on Office 2007 suite apps' windows.

i think any compatibility with Office2007 will depend on luck, since the Office dev team do not conform standard gui implementation - this is an on-going problem..

kalos: Auto Raise AHK script that lanux128 linked to works fine. Give it a try.

Edit: You might want to edit the script and set

[copy or print]
hover_task_min_info = 0;

so that even minimized windows in the taskbar are activated upon mouse hover.

 (see attachment in previous post)
http://www.donationcoder..../index.html#MouseActivate

this script is very nice and powerful

however I would like more options to be able to specify where "click when hover" should work

I mean, I would like to make it work only in windowsxp taskbar buttons, in windows area (like the x-mouse option of tweakui), in the small minimize/maximize/close buttons at the top right of each window, etc etc

also I would like to be able to specify specific hover times for each of the above

can you implement these please?

(I dont know where to post this)

thanks

PS: also you may have a look here to implement the features of this script

http://www.autohotkey.com...rum/viewtopic.php?t=22763

1) to ignore (second) hovering over the same taskbar button? and to un-ignore hovering if the mouse goes to another taskbar button? generaly to recognize only first hovers over a taskbar button
2) to have the option disable hovering to minimize an active window by hovering over its taskbar button and preserve only the ability to activate and inactive window (or to specify different hover time for minimizing an active window)
3) to ignore hovering if the mouse buttons are pressed (especially when we are talking about taskbar buttons)

and all the other features

thanks !
