Third Party Winodows Application Automation

3 posts in this topic

I'm new here. I want to know if AutoIt can automate third party winodws application, such as click "File" then click "Open", paste a file with directory to textbox, then open that file and run the application. Where can I find some sample code? Thanks

You can send("!fo") to most programs, and then wait til the open dialog is up and send the filename and click that button, but if all you wanted is to open a file, most programs also use commandlines, like run('notepad.exe "C:\temp\My little text file.txt")
