Window not Active

Recommended Posts

Cerro

Hi just have a question.. sorry for disturbing you guys.. I just want to know if there is a way I can make the program run even if the target window is not active..

The reason for this is because i want to do something, like browsing the net while my macro is running. Thank you.

You didn't give us much to go on but I'm guessing you want WinExists() amd not WinActive()

You can't do that with Send(0 but you can do it with ControlSend().

See the example on the help page for ControlSend()

Also you may want to investigate the use of While/WEnd and Do/Until loops.
