hii all

i know that my question is too old & boring _ but i didn't find solution to send key at minimized window / client window

i use controlsend but its useless _ it's just sending key at maximize state

ControlSend ("-windows title-","","Edit1","{I}")

_ all i need _ is to know if autoit had this Feature or not ???

I can guarantee you that control send can work like you ask.

$nPid = Run ("Notepad.exe")
WinWait ("Untitled - Notepad")

$hWnd = WinGetHandle ("Untitled - Notepad")

WinSetState ($hWnd, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

For $i = 1 to 10
   ControlSend ($hWnd, "", "Edit1", "This is line number: " & $i & "{ENTER}")
Next

There are cases where it will not work, simply because the window does not use normal controls. For instance the command prompt window.
