Sending to window in background

3 posts in this topic

Hi all :graduated:

I'm looking for a possibility to basically do what exactly the Send-Function does, only to a Window that is not currenctly active (i.e. in the background).

I haven't had any luck so far scanning the documentation for something like this, can anyone help me?

Thanks for reading!

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :graduated:

Look at ControlSend in the Help file. It does not always work on non-active windows, but is the best bet. :(
