Beginner Needs Help
2011-02-02 13:34:24 GMT
I been studying the manual in my spare moments for my first year of studying this great tool/language.
The manual is very daunting to even open; it is so big. I would have liked to see a pointer to which page to start reading it on, at the homepage. That's probably because I am a bit slow, but a lot of people are put off by big books, when they are not used to studying.
I have done my best to understand it and have found it speeded my work up tremendously with just a few hotkeys and timers.
What I am trying to do now is to make a small utility which only works when an Explorer, or any number of similar apps like XYPlorer, are held in some sort of list. When any of the list members are created or opened, and they get the windows FOCUS, my app is needed to start running, and must run until Explorer or any of the others in that list which were being used, lost focus.
Then the utility must stop and would restart in the same circumstances, when another of these windows gets the focus.
I reckon I could make the small utility to do a task, but this launchy part of the job is mistifying me, although I keep looking back at the manual. I can't seem to get started with it.
Will any nice person give me a few lines of script to get me going?
Thanks in anticipation.
