Capture keystrokes sent to a particular window

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a little question:
Easily send keystrokes to a specific window using the Send () function.
Likewise, is it possible to capture keystrokes sent to a particular window and is this information automatically included in the script?
Thank for all the answers.

That is not such an easy task.  It will depends on multiple factors :

1- Is it your own GUI or a 3rd party apps ?

2- Since Send emulate key strokes, do you want to capture only those send keys or all keys

3- Maybe a more appropriate solution, like IPC should be considered
