Click in background without maximizing window

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I would like to send clicks to a minimized window, which I successfully accompolished but I have a problem. My problem is that every time a click has been sent to the window, the window maximizes itself (therefore making it active) which is quite annoying. I tried hiding it and everything, but i just cant make it so that it doesnt maximize or active itself everytime something happens in the window. Any suggestions?

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
opt("caretcoordmode", 1)

hotkeyset("{f2}", "handle")

while 1

func handle()
    $handle = wingethandle("XY")
    while 1
    controlclick("XY", "", $handle, "left", 1, 297, 484)

I looked at similar forums, but I couldnt find anything similar to this.

I'm thinking of a solution, but unfortunately it's not possible in AutoIt as it requires a DLL.

The idea is to subclass the window proc and to block the activate event.

Br, FireFox.


OS : Win XP SP2 (32 bits) / Win 7 SP1 (64 bits) / Win 8 (64 bits) | Autoit version: latest stable / beta.
Hardware : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10Ghz / 8 GiB RAM DDR3.
