3 posts in this topic

hi very new to autoit...discovered this gem today.

basically will autoit script/exe still run on a minimized running process ? for example, notepad is minimized will autoit still do its magic ? or does notepad need to be focused and active ? if not doable on autoit, how can i achieve this with other programs ?

also, off topic question, does autoit also able to click on links and buttons on websites ? if not is there something that can accomplish this ?

how can i find resources on using autoit api with vb6 ?

thank you !!!

AutoIt can edit .txt files without needing to open it by using FileWrite, FileWriteLine functions.

It does not only access applications that should be kept on top of other windows. The buttons, links that you

have in apps, websites have controls, autoit can work without clicking.

Read the help file. Look at ControlSend() as an example. It can operate with a minimized window.

Read the help file. Look at the _IE* functions and try the example scripts there.

Read the help file (seeing a pattern here?), then you'll have to be more specific about what you want to do.

:D
