Sending Commands in Inactive Window

2 posts in this topic

Hello Guyz, I've been searching this kind of topic in the forum but got no luck. Can anyone help me how make keystrokes,identifying pixel colors in a INACTIVE window or minimized window?.

Example like:

If PixelGetColor(541,38) == 0xFB1C20 Then

Do

Send("1")

Sleep(1000)

Until PixelGetColor(541,38) <> 0xFB1C20

EndIf

How to send this command that will work even if a window that this commands sends is inactive. Escpecially the color identification. It identifies even if that certain window/application/program is inactive.

Hoping for the an early reply Thanks in Advance.

Use ControlSend.

From AutoIt Help file: "ControlSend works in a similar way to Send but it can send key strokes directly to a window/control, rather than just to the active window."

As for pixels, I don't think you can do that without activating the window.
