Using AutoIt on an inactive window

Recommended Posts

Tazo

The only function I know of that can assist me with this are the Control* functs. However, they do not have an option for mouse coordinates. The button I'm trying to click in IE7 has no text or ID.

So, as the topic states, is it possible to use AutoIt or another language to send a click to an inactive window purely on mouse coordinates?

I have been trying to do this for about a year now in VB6, AutoIt, and a very small amount of c++, but eventually giving up with no success after some time. Due to the image I'm trying to click not having an ID or text, I'm assuming that the IE libraries are unusable as well, but if you could point me in the right direction, that'd be awesome.

All and any help is appreciated. :)

edit: if anyone knows how to use Windows API and sendmessage to accomplish this, that works, too. :)

#include <ie.au3>

and use the ObjCreate() _IEAttach() type stuff... search the forums a bit... it's all there.
