Hotkeys to a system tray MMB program

5 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm new to Autoit, so new in fact I haven't even written a script yet! First I'm hoping somebody can tell me if it will do what I require.

I created a program (using MMB) which minimizes to the system tray. I want to be able to run parts of the program (MMB scripts) using assigned hotkeys while it resides in the tray. Can AutoIt help me accomplish this? :ph34r:

Thanks,

Ginger

If you look at the helpfile, you will find the info you need using the Send command.


Who else would I be?

Hi thanks for the reply! Yes I saw this command before. Does this not only work on the "active" window? If my program has been minimized to the system tray it is no longer active. Or am I missing something?

Check ControlSend() and other Control commands.

Yup, ControlSend should do the trick. It will send to both active and inactive windows! I will try it.

Thanks ezzetabi,
