Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I have written this program , it presses a button and the click of a mouse at a point when the window is active . How do I change the program to make it work with windows not active (minimized ) ?

;run vlc.exe
run("C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe")

sleep(3000)

;Handle VLC
Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("Lettore multimediale VLC", "")

Sleep(2000)

;Activate window vlc.exe
WinActivate($hWnd)

sleep(1000)


;Key and click mouse in x=500    y=500
send("{F11}")
MouseClick("left", 500, 500, 2)

Sleep(2000)

 


ps I read the command " sendcontrol " but I can not make it work

Thanks, but there is a problem. The field " Class " and " Istance " of "basic control info" are empty , there is only "class" of "basic window info", while for other programs ( as notepad ) "class " and " istance " there are and the command controlsend works perfectly .

How can I do if "class " and " istance "  of autoit window info are empty?

 

Thanks

 Welcome to the AutoIt forum.

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked.

See you back soon with a legitimate question I hope.
