yonu,

all 4 windows will be separate programs

Do you mean you want to embed the windows of 4 other applications into your GUI? If so, what are they?

Or do you want to have 4 windows which are controlled by different sections of your script?

Of a mixture of both? :idea:

yonu,

This shows you how to embed an external application in an AutoIt GUI: :idea:

#include <GUIconstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate('Parent', 800, 600, 100, 100, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_SIZEBOX, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
GUISetState()

; Open Notepad
Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled")

; Resize Norepad to fit
$hNotePad = WinGetHandle("Untitled")
WinMove($hNotePad, "", 0, 0, 400, 300)
Sleep(500)

; Set Notepad as child of our GUI
$hOriginalParent = _WinAPI_SetParent($hNotePad, $hGUI)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ;Reset Notepad to original parent
            _WinAPI_SetParent($hNotePad, $hOriginalParent)
            Sleep(500)
            WinClose($hNotePad)
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I hope that is what you were looking for. :)
