WinActivate doesn't work in Child Windows

Recommended Posts

Wooltown

Opt("WinSearchChildren", 1)

WinActivate ("Microsoft Excel")
WinActivate ("Book2")
Sleep (2000)
Send ("aa")

In Excel, I have 2 Sheets, "Book1" and "Book2", Book 1 is on top, I can't get "Book2" activated, the script will write "aa" on "Book1".

Regards

Sven

I don't think Book2 is a window accessible with autoit. You can verify that "AutoIt info tool" does not return such window.

NO BUG

PS It is always good to start with the support forum before writing a BUG. Thanks

You might want to take a look at ExcelCom UDF it probably deals with what your wanting to do.


SciTE for AutoItDirections for Submitting Standard UDFs

 

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
