Sending To Windows Other Than Active Window

5 posts in this topic

Can you send keystrokes to windows other than the active window?

I want to run a macro on an application that does not have focus, and use another application while that is going, is this possible?

wow.... thanks so much Larry

I am going to try that right now and I will report later if i run into any problems

hmm, I don't think the spy is giving me the correct controls, because it is working on other programs, just not this one

is there any way to get a full list of controls for a program so i can check them all?

i think the application uses DirectInput to pick up keystrokes, not sure if this has any effect on it

hmm

seems like it should be able to work if i can just find the right control to send the keystrokes to

i can make working scripts using Send

if i could just get a list of all the possible controls that i might have to send keystrokes to...

arg... it would appear as if it is using a custom control called TDXInput, and i guess controlsend isn't going to work for me

blah....
