Someone well versed in sending messages to WMP (I'm looking at you, Frodo:)) :
I've recently downloaded talisman (a shell alteration program, I recommend) and the way they handle WMP is through a side bar but any button presses of that sidebar maximize WMP, somewhat defeating the purpose of having the sidebar.
I'm not too fluent in Window's handles / sending messages or anything. I'm decent at coding, but not windows specific stuff. Any help/suggestions are appreciated. Here's what the helpfile has to say on the sendmessage command:
I've been looking at WMP messages through Winspector Spy (= Spy++) for days and I can't find anything.Code:
Syntax: sendmessage <parameter1> <parameter2> <parameter3> <parameter4> <parameter5>
parameter1* - Window class name (string);
parameter2* - Window name (string);
parameter3 - message to send (integer);
parameter4 - first Windows Message parameter (integer);
parameter5 - second Windows Message parameter (integer).
* - Use a "" for names with spaces. Use a nil parameter for not defined names. For example: send Play command to WinAmp player:
sendmessage "Winamp v1.x" nil 273 40045 0
