Just discovered AutoIT... 1st question - be kind pls.

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

This is my first post here, as I've just discovered AutoIT. I have some scripting/programming experience, but it is very basic. What I want to do (and I was referred to AutoIT on another forum when I asked this question) is fairly basic. I want to be able to control the size and screen position of a Windows application every time it opens. Could someone point me in the right direction or better yet a tutorial that shows me how to do this?

All help appreciated,

bob

I have now looked at WinExists and WinMove and obviously happy that AutoIT will be able to do what I want. Could someone post an example of a script that will check for the existance of a window and then re-size and re-position it?

Thx,

bob
