Send command doesn't work

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to automate a process in OtsAvPro. The main screen of the program doesn't use regular windows control (like normal menus or toolbars).

All I want is to simulate Alt+f. Of course it works fine manually, but it doesn't work using the script. Is there another way to send the keyboard sequence? What is the common way to control programs that doesn't use the regular windows controls?

AutoItSetOption ( "WinTitleMatchMode", 2 )

WinActivate("[CLASS:OtsAVpro]", "")

If WinActive("[CLASS:OtsAVpro]") Then

$hWin = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:OtsAVpro; INSTANCE:1]", "")
ConsoleWrite("$hWin = " & $hWin & @LF)
ControlSend($hWin, "", "", "!f")

Compare the handle reported to the actual window with AU3Info.exe.

And screwing around with WinTitleMatchMode isn't necessary, as advanced specs work by default.

Well $hWin returns the same value as the AU3Info.exe. But still The Alt+f doesn't respond
