Reading Fields/Copy & Paste

2 posts in this topic

I am not sure of the full functionality of AutoIt, last I used it was during its first release, and I was just trying to send some keystrokes. So, maybe you can help me.

I have some routine tasks I do at work. The one I am here for is this:

Go into my database (ACT! Build 6.0.0.679), copy 2 different fields one-at-a-time, then paste them into our Email Client (Eudora Build 6.2.1.2) to send a email. For instance, the email address and the person's Name.

I was thinking of 1 of 2 solutions.

1) Activate an AUTOIT script with a Hotkey (for example Ctrl+1), then the script would select the Act Database window, go to the email field, copy the info, then select the Eudora Email Client Window and paste the email, in the email field.

2) The other solution is an upgrade to that, where it does it for both fields. So it doubles the script to also do it for the email and the contact's name.

Part of the problem is I don't know what is the 'smart' way of Autoit reading a field in a program (like 'email address' or 'First Name', "Phone Number", etc.). How can all this be done?
