iSelector

AutoIt select item from menubar

5 posts in this topic

Hi, i want to build some automation code that will select some item from a menubar of minimized (or non-active) window.

I have tried to do it with ControlSend function by sending some keys like alt and directions, but it's not working...

See my example:

I want to select the item "Select All", for this i wrote this code:

WinWaitActive("HI - HyperTerminal")
Send("{ALTDOWN}{ALTUP}{RIGHT}{ENTER}{DOWN}{DOWN}{ENTER}")

 

The code above works good, but i want that it will work when the window is not active, so i wrote this line:

ControlSend("HI - HyperTerminal", "", "Term Class1", "{ALTDOWN}{ALTUP}{RIGHT}{ENTER}{DOWN}{DOWN}{ENTER}")

This is not working for me, do you have some idea how can i implement it?
