How do I 'Send' keys to an inactive window without gaining focus?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Sorry to go back this message, but controlsend no longer works if the window is not active

In doc autoit : The control might first need to be given focus with the ControlFocus() command, specially when referencing an controlID created by the script itself.

How to do now please??

thank you

This is such an old thread (disucssing older versions of AutoIt) that I suggest to open a new one.
Please add information about the version of Autoit you run plus the application you try to automate. And why you need to avoid giving focus to the application.
