Newbie needs pointing the way

7 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

I'm a complete newbie to AutoIt so please forgive my ignorance. I have done a fair bit of VB programming in the past.

I run an application that monitors forex prices live. That application puts out audible alerts when something important happens and I want to be able to take action in another application automatically when the alerts occur, so I don't have to sit there all day waiting.

How do I capture the sound events in the forex application? I think I can handle the Send instructions to the second application.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Can you capture sound events in VB ?


Agreement is not necessary - thinking for one's self is!

If I knew how to do this in VB I wouldn't be here.

Can you offer any help?

I don't have very much experience with VB, so in that sense no, I can't help you, but you may be able to find something on the forum via the search tool ( top / right ).

I think I've actually seen someone else wanting to know the same thing.

Did you write the forex app ?

Revised Information.

The Forex Application also displays the alert in a label control. Can I capture changes to the text of a label control in one application and then automate a second application? What do I need to look up?

That would be an easy task. Find AU3Info.exe in the AutoIt root folder, it's a utility to help you get control id's and such. You can then read the control and do your test.
