ControlSend to two identical programs

Recommended Posts



I want to send keystrokes to two instances of the same program. But I don't find any way of distingishing between them. AutoIt Window Info does not detect any visible text or any such things.

If I ControlSend based on the title, only one of the two instances gets the input (the one that was last focused/active).

WinList can help (window handle return data part)

Or WinGetHandle


ControlSend($VariableThatHoldSpecificWinHandleIdentifer, "", "Edit1", "This is a line of text in the notepad window")

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
