Sure, the application involved is PL/SQL Developer.  It has the gripper control on the toolbars and no way of turning it off.  I frequently click too far left of the button and click the gripper causing the toolbar to be moved from it's location.

Would it be possible to have an AHK script to remove the CBRS_GRIPPER from a toolbar control?

Looks like they've rolled back to 5.44.6577.  :-[

Would it be possible with AHK or something else to create a hotkey that would allow the user to detach a child window from an MDI frame and present it in a dialog type box that can be dragged anywhere on any monitor (outside of the mdi frame)?

"Miscellaneous" is misspelled in the options window.  Section "The Basics"  sub-section "Saving and Loading Files".

Post New Requests Here / Detact child window from MDI.
« on: March 13, 2013, 12:11 PM »
I have an application that has a child window that I would like to move outside the application frame.  I was looking at Skrommels DetactVideo and was wondering if it could be hacked to detact a child window from an MDI layout.  Any ideas or suggestions?  Anybody else ran into something that might provide the functionality I want?

Coding Snacks / Use AutoHotkey to add button to existing window?

Can you add a ahk control to a commercial app?  What I'm looking for is a little like Barnacle but not a toolbar.  Take CALC.exe for example.  Can you place a button over one of the existing buttons on the calculator?  Anybody have any examples?

Is this for AutoHotkey Basic, AutoHotkey_L, etc?

I would like to refresh a window on a set interval (like browser extensions do).  Is there an AUTOHOTKEY solution to sending F5 (or other keystrokes) to an inactive window (non-browser app)? 

Coding Snacks / Another Right-Click Menu question (except different)
« on: December 02, 2011, 10:24 AM »
I want to remove/disable the "CUT", "DELETE" and "RENAME" items from the right menu choices depending on certain rules (i.e. contents of folders, file path, only for certain directories).  The best example I can give is the way that TortoiseSVN alters the menu depending on if the item is added to the repository or not.  I've looked into the TSVN code and found some useful stuff but I'm unclear how it all ties together.  I've found where the items are added to the registry but I'm missing the "rule" functionality that is used to determine when to alter the menu.  I'm open to all ideas.

I've tried most the apps suggested in other topics with no avail.

FileMenu Tools
Right Click Enhancer
(and a few others that are slipping my mind right now)

Post New Requests Here / IDEA: App to set monitor position/order
« on: September 28, 2011, 01:46 PM »
Ok, this is a crazy request but I need an app that can set my monitors (physical devices) to a predefined order and position.  Like you would do in the display properties settings window.
Background: I have a laptop + 19" + 19" (via usb) and they usually map/assign as [1][3][2]

Occassionally after rebooting the monitor position gets altered (never the same) today it was...

Does anybody have any ideas on how to set this through AHK?

Thanks for tackling this for me! It's a good start! :Thmbsup:
Multi-monitor capability is a must for me because all of the computers here are 2+ monitor configurations.
I think the inverse band is pretty good, but it's moving too fast on my system and is really choppy. Is there a way to modify the speed and width of it?
Also, if there could be a way to dim the screen such as in the dimsaver screensaver (allowing realtime updates), I think that might be just as good as doing a whole shot and inverting it.
As far as how realtime the data must be.... I would be okay with less than 2-5 seconds of delay.

Would it be possible/useful to just slowly scroll the whole screen? Up until the header appears at the bottom, then down until the footer appears at the top, and repeat?  :-\

I like that idea.  Reminiscence of the old vertical hold problem on old tv's.

I did find this but haven't tried it out yet.  (work computer has screensavers locked down, like that's a security risk!) 
Ike-World Screen Saver

Would you want this for every application in the taskbar?

or maybe just change the title to be the percentage + title

5% - Toad for Oracle | 10% - Untitled - Notepad | 30% - Inbox - Microsoft Outlook

Would it be possible to create an app that would add a progress meter to the buttons on the taskbar to indicate CPU and/or Memory usage for each app.

All, I've been wanting this for a long time.  Thanks to Michaewlewis for renewing my interest in it.  I did a little searching and stumbled on xyz's example of how to do it.

You can download the SCRs made from the example code but I would like to see it enhanced a little.  I would like to see it use the "Settings" button on the Display Properties | Screen Saver tab.  I'd like to be able to select the BMP or JPG I want to use and set the transparency percentage.

How about it?  Any takers?

I've been looking for a way to trigger an application when I dock/undock my laptop.  Triggering based off battery/power cord is not an option.  Any ideas?

Perfect.  That is exactly what I've been looking for for months! 


I'd like a small utility that would monitor when new windows are opened and move them to the active screen (in a multiple monitor setup). 

Example of Problem:  I open notepad on monitor #3 then click FILE|OPEN and the Open File Dialog opens on monitor #1.
