I need some help. Currently, i have a script created by AutoIT v2. The problem that i am running into is that the program that I scripted to run was poorly developed. What I mean by that is that while running the program via the script, the program will generate a dialog box. When this happens, the main program itself falls back into the background and will not come back into the foreground unless you manually click on it. What I have done is that I would send a Alt+Tab command to bring the program back into the foreground. This works well, however, it leads to another problem. The machine that I am running the script and program on runs in parallel with other programs on the taskbar. Sending the Alt+tab command works great if it was the only program running, but has problems when it is not the only program running.

HOw do i send a command to ensure that the script will send a command to bring the program back to the foreground, and issue the commands without it effecting any other programs running on the taskbar? I have looked around, but cannot seem to overcome this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Maybe because he's satisfied with how green the grass looks like on his side of the fence ?

Or maybe it's the barbwire on top of the fence that scares him ? Also, as it's stated in the

helpfile (the v3 one) :

v2.64 will continue to be available for download and there are few reasons why users should

try and convert existing scripts (if it ain't broke, etc.).

EDIT : Just so that you know finger123...the grass is in fact greener on the v3-side ! Oh, and the taste !
