O.P. Undecided  [request] Auto-maximize?
I tried searching for it but I didnt find any script that could do this.

Can anyone do one or knows where do find one?

Sorry if there is one and is posted somewhere in the forum, I tried to search for it but I had no result

Were you looking for the script to auto-maximise the chat window, the contact list or both?

and when?

Please be more specific in request like this... :p

Also, if you maximize the windows (contactlist and/or chat window), it will always be maximized whenever you start messenger again or open the contactlist from the systray icon or when you start another conversation. So currently I don't see any point in creating such a script at all.

Always. I don't like the small windows and I'm always maximizing them.

RE: [request] Auto-maximize?
code:
var WindowPlacement = Interop.Allocate(48);
var RECT = Interop.Allocate(16);
var SW_MAXIMIZE = 0x3;

function _setPlacement(hWnd){
    if (hWnd > 0){
        Interop.Call('user32', 'GetWindowRect', hWnd, RECT);
        with (WindowPlacement){
            .WriteDWORD(8, SW_MAXIMIZE)
            .WriteDWORD(36, RECT.ReadDWORD(0));
            .WriteDWORD(40, RECT.ReadDWORD(4));
            .WriteDWORD(44, RECT.ReadDWORD(8));
            .WriteDWORD(48, RECT.ReadDWORD(12));
        }
        Interop.Call('user32', 'SetWindowPlacement', hWnd, WindowPlacement);
    }
}

function OnEvent_ChatWndCreated(objChatWnd){
    _setPlacement(objChatWnd);
}

function OnEvent_ContactListWndCreated(objWnd){
    _setPlacement(objWnd);
}

I have attached a script that will do this for you.  I hope you like it.

N.B. It will not automatically maximize your Chat Windows when installed but will do any others that are opened.

EDIT: @Matty - I just used the likes of Interop.Call("user32","ShowWindow",ChatWnd.Handle,3);

Would you mind explaining to me why/if your method is better?  I would just like to know for future reference as I'm just getting used to calling DLLs.

Thanks a lot Matty and markee.

Btw, shouldn't  it say WindowPlacement in the first line? (Instead of WindowPlacment)

Anyways, thanks for the help :P I wont delete the thread in case someone else wants this script

RE: [request] Auto-maximize?
Not sure if this issue is covered anywhere else in the Forum. Whenever I have a group of chats minimized, and I minimize a window for some other program, the group chats remaximizes automatically. This has only started to occur after I installed Plus!

This issue occurs on both Windows Server 2003, Windows XP and Windows MCE 2005. Messenger version 8.1.0178.00.

If I have not made the issue clear, please ask for more information.
