Function to send keys to program in background

Recommended Posts

flatter83

Hello,

i have a problem finding a function to send specific keystrokes to a program running in background.

Details:

i've tried ControlSend, but that doesn't seem to work, because it's just sending a string not a keystroke.

i've tried Send, but that just works with programs in focus.

 

Thanks in advance for any helpful answers or hints where to look for.

flatter83,

JohnOne is quite right - please read the Forum rules (the link is also at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - before you post again. Thread locked. :naughty:

But welcome to the AutoIt forum - and see you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
