WinActivate with variables?

Recommended Posts

While 1 
Func openmsn()
    WinActivate ("Windows Live Messenger")
Func stopitunes()
    If WinActive("$title") Then
        MsgBox(0,"","Window is active again")

I'm attempting to make a script myself that opens itunes, pauses itunes (with spacebar) and then goes back to the previous window.

Everything works but it won't go back to the previous window.

If you don't understand how I attempted to do this , this was my plan:

1. Saving the current active window using $tile=WinGetTitle("[Active]")

2. Activate itunes, pause iTunes.

3. Activate the previous active window using $title again

Does anybody know what I did wrong?

Thank you.

You do not need quotes ("") around variables - just use: ;)

If WinActive($title)


P.S. How is the function interrupt code comimg along? :)

RE:P.S : The function interrupt code is not in this script, but thank you for making that tutorial, I might even consider using it in this script also, but only when I have more functions than just itunes pause and openmsn :)

EDIT: Does anyone know how to do this when watching youtube fullscreen?

Like it goes back to fullscreen, just wondering if that is possible?
