HI folks, I am still a noob to Autoit but I find it very helpful. However I am having a problem right now and I dont know if autoit can help me solve the problem.

the question is if I am able to have the program type a key stroke or a tring of keys for me in loops. for instance, if I have a notepad file open on the right hand side of the screen and then I use MouseMove(x,y) and then MouseClick("left") to get the notepad program focused and then I would like to enter some character texts, like "a", "b" or " " <-- a space and so on. How can I do that? I thought I read through the help file but I didnt see anything that is doing a key stroke inputing.

please help me out and thanks a lot guys!

For your question the answer is Send() and/or ControlSend().

Another thing you may want to look into instead of using a mouse click to bring it active are the Win*() functions (like WinActivate()).

I hope that helps,
