bool MinimizeWnd (int)

Minimizes the specified window

Security

Trust Level Required: Full Trust

Parameters

Name Description
hWnd int
The handle of the window to minimize

Return

True on success.

Remarks

IMPORTANT: While KioWare can be used to open 3rd party applications it cannot guarantee any security of your kiosk while these applications are in use.

It is practical to show a taskbar with all open apps via the User Interface section of the Configuration Tool. With KioWare running in shell mode, as is recommended, the start menu will still be disabled.

Examples


//This example can be run from a custom toolbar javascript button or CustomToolbarCode.js
var pid
var wnd = null

if(!pid) pid = KioUtils.Execute('notepad.exe')
var wnd = null
while (!wnd) {
	wnd = KioUtils.GetProcMainWnd(pid)
	setInterval(checkVisibility, 500)
}

function checkVisibility(){
	//Keep the window minimized after a user clicks on it in the taskbar
	if(!KioUtils.IsWndMinimized(wnd)) KioUtils.MinimizeWnd(wnd)
}

Requirements

KioWare for Windows version 8.5 or greater.
