Holds down a key on a few minimized window and writing handler as a number


Recommended Posts

1. How do I make a multiple minimized windows at once believe I am holding down a key for like 5 seconds?

I know I can send minimized windows a key press with ControlSend.
What hat would be the way to simulate a 'humanly' held down key to a few minimized windows? 

 

2. How come: if I compare a handle's hexa value and the actual handler, I get false

For example: when the Notepad's handler value is 0x00000000000CFFFF, I always get the message box.
 

if(NOT(0x00000000000C0664 == WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad"))) Then
    MsgBox(0,"swi","0x00000000000CFFFF" & @CRLF & "lmao" & @CRLF & WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad"))
EndIf

 

Why does that happen? also I can't use hexadecimal value as a handler when I use the ControlSend function.

There is no point in scripting in handles.   they change every time a window is created.   maybe you are running the 64bit spy tool and 32bit autoit directive (default)?  it is possible to verify the return of wingethandle against a scripted handle like what you supplied. ..but 32bit handles are half the length

 

I suppose you can start several processes to controlsend to each window, but you won't be able to in one script.  you can't multithread with autoit.  some apps require the window to be active, which would also make this task impossible.   that's a windows OS limitation

      My current script:
      ```
      $notepadWindow = RunWait('notepad.exe')
      ControlSend($notepadWindow, "Edit1", "", "abcde")
      WinSetState($notepadWindow, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
      ```
      I can't seem to get these three lines to work. Its supposed to run a notepad window, then enter "abcde", followed by minimizing it. 
      Currently it just opens and nothing happens.
      What am I doing wrong here?

      I need to mute an ongoing call on Microsoft teams without activating the window. Teams allows us to mute using shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+m but only when the window is active.
      # Used set option as ongoing call can be with any person which leads to change in Title Name.
      AutoItSetOption ( "WinTitleMatchMode", 2 ) 
      # I am not clear with the control ID which will be good to use here and also the key combination of ^M       
      ControlSend ( "Microsoft Teams", "", "[CLASS:Intermediate D3D Window; INSTANCE:1]", "{ctrl down}")
       
      Can anyone help...!!!

      Run("notepad.exe") GLOBAL $One = ('Line1' & _ 'Line2' & _ 'Line3' & _ 'Line4' & _ 'Line5') ClipPut($One) $Notepad = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10) ControlSend("Untitled - Notepad", "", "", ("^v")) Instead of having this paste as Line1Line2Line3Line4Line5
      How can I make it paste it into notepad as (without double spacing.)
      Line1
      Line2
      Line3
      Line4
      Line5
