I have a small script with hot spots. when over the hotspot, the lsxcommand is shown. then you do whatever. you can hide the lsxcommand by returning to the hotspot. however, I have a small usability bug. If you accidentally show the lsx, then hide it again, the focus is still on the lsx (I use [!commandshow !focuscommand] to show, and [!commandhide]) thus you can do !bang commands when the lsx is hidden which is bit disconcerting
Is there a way to take the focus off the lsxcommand whenhidden, but only when it has the focus?
Instead of hidding it try:
No need to have it loaded while is hidden
That shouldn't be possible! MSDN: "A hidden window can process messages from the system or from other windows, but it cannot process input from the user or display output." This wouldn't be the first time it was wrong or misleading though... :(
1. !focuscommand displays LSXCommand. No need for !CommandShow.
2. I know of no way to unfocus it. You could see about using One or some !bang on hiding it to give focus elsewhere, though.
Error: could not locate module.
Please check your configuration.
I started with
(with a copy of the dll in the correct place)
neither seem to work :(
Look I do it with Lsslider but it should work with Lsxcommand also.
No need to *NetLoadModule lsxcommand-19.2 any more. (Its allready on your mods directory (unless you want it to be visible at start up).
Look in your mods directory an see what you got for lsxcommand there(version), and use that, once you got it working you can change version if you want.
just call this bangs with the complete path(for your pc)on your hotspots actions :for example:
!ReloadModule c:\litestep\modules\lsxcommand-1.9.2.dll (to show)
!unloadModule c:\litestep\modules\lsxcommand-1.9.2.dll (to hide)
"Its allready on your mods directory"
Maybe, but not in everyone else's.
Avoid mixing *Net... and !ReloadModule/!UnloadModule unless you have no other solution. And if you use a module, but don't load it with *NetLoadModule, use *NetInstallModule. (assuming you're making a theme for distribution, otherwise who cares.)
This could take longer than a simple hide/show and temporarily increase memory usage by more (may be more things dragged up from the page file), but probably not noticeable.
But I don't know why you'd be having trouble loading it if it worked before...
add this to your theme.rc:
...for the future :)
rabid: I wouldn't say it's not possible. different apps occasionally take control, even when they're on different desktops, which basically hides them. you wouldn't believe how many times I've been typing an e-mail, look up, and everything I typed is actually showing up in opera, though it's on a different desktop. the strange this is, I don't think it happens while using ckvwm, only rabidvwm...
Oh, I didn't say it wasn't possible, clearly it is. Just that, afaik, it shouldn't be. :( Windows on a different desktop are only hidden if you use HideTaskOnSwitch. Otherwise they're fair game, and win2k/xp don't always give litestep permission to force focus to go somewhere else. Dunno why ckvwm would manage better...
