@sushmithaborkar welcome to the forum. Take a look at WinMenuSelectItem in the help file. It shows you how to invoke the menu of a program, including its sub items. Try it out for yourself on your application; if you run into problems fee free to post the script and we will do our best to help.

You may whish to use the (text) commands of Eagle instead of the GUI automation. You may also use Eagle scripting ou Eagle language support.

May I ask why you need to automate schematic entry?

By the way it is Altium tool not Eagle.

Am trying to automate whole Altium process beginning from importing schematic and footprint from a file and making few changes in it and later exporting it to Eagle tool.

to select component in altium schematic page, i tried using

1. ' send("^a")'

2. ' HotKeySet("^a", "_selectall")'

3. from Tab  options=> Edit -> select-> select all

none are working...it selects the component only for little time and deselects again.

I have zero knowledge about Altium, sorry. If it uses XML as file format (like Eagle does), you may have much better time parsing from there.
