PaintShop Pro: Accessing its image windows?

Recommended Posts

terrypin

Anyone else use PaintShop Pro please? (originally Jasc, now Corel.) Mine is an old version, PSP 8, but this issue probably applies to more recent ones.

AutoIt (and other tools such as AHK and Macro Express Pro) seem unable to access its image windows. They don't appear in the list of windows when using AutoIt v3 Window Info, for example. If there's some way to work with these 'child' windows I'd appreciate a pointer or simple example please.

The only thing I can think of is to use exact coordinates and pixel search functions. Depending on what you intend to do, this could get rather complicated. If you do try this, I suggest maximizing both parent and child windows and make sure all tool bars are in fixed positions. For simple tasks (such as dragging a coloured layer a few pixels to the right or left) this approach may be acceptable.

Thanks czardas. Yes, that's the approach I've been taking. But it's so dependent on positioning etc that I'm hoping to find a better alternative.

Thanks, I'll explore that, although as a novice it looks a bit heavy!
