You have to be creative. If the controls aren't standard, you have to rely on other methods - location of controls in windows, changing windows titles, pixel colors, using visible text cues, screen ocr, parsing log files, etc. Sometimes you're even fortunate enough to be able to use a different tool, one more ameneable to automation. Posting more detail about the app and what it does / is supposed to do might get you responses from those who have used apps that provide equivalent functionality.


Reading the help file before you post... Not only will it make you look smarter, it will make you smarter.
