Window DLL

Hello,

:P This DLL is deprecated. It is highly recommended to use my Game Appearance Extension instead, which contains more features than this DLL. Click here!

This DLL allows you to automatically minimize, maximize and restore the game window by just calling the corresponding DLL function. There are also two functions to get whether the window is currently minimized respectively maximized. It can also set the focus on the window and check whether the window has focus currently.

Download (10.7 kB)

Written in Pascal, comments and suggestions are welcome -_-

It would be better if you combined this dll with your taskbar dll. Because both of them are related to modifying the features of the window.

Update!

I managed to drop the DLL file size from 118 kB to just 16 kB! Also version information has been added to the DLL file.

Also a bug in the scripts (and in the example) has been corrected, which caused that under some circumstances the DLL functions didn't work. It did not take in count that the window handle of the game window can change. It is recommended to replace the old scripts by the new ones.

Download link in first post.

Yes, these are the same changes as to my Taskbar DLL

SleeK GeeK, feel free to use both of the DLLs together. I might merge them in future.

I agree, it hard enough to manage (N_menu, BZ_toolbar, so to add another 2 would be a major headache)

Great Little additons, thx for the effort!

is it possible to have it in a .gex for commercial usage... wow, it's a mazing, except does the window have to have a border for it to work, because I want it so it's for my own customized minimize button, so that I can use it for the skin of my dock...

Assuming I helped you out in a questions and answers topic won't you return the favour by helping me with one my coding problems, or recommend some one who can chat to me over pms about helping and how to overcome my obstacles, after all lets just say I did help you or them or many people with similar problems, in that topic.

Here i have a topic for those of you struggling with type writer text and mugshots in your games especially if it is a rpg see the link below for more info
