ControlClick to inactive window?

2 posts in this topic

try this script with various versions of autoit...

Global $pid1,$pid2,$hwnd1,$hwnd2,$time

$time = TimerInit()

$pid1 = Run("notepad")
$pid2 = Run("cmd")
;replace cmd /\ with program of your choice...

Do
    $hwnd1 = ProcessGetHwnd($pid1)
    $hwnd2 = ProcessGetHwnd($pid2)
    Sleep(100)
    If TimerDiff($time) > 10000 Then Exit
Until $hwnd1 <> 0 And $hwnd2 <> 0

WinActivate($hwnd1)
Sleep(1000)
ControlSend($hwnd2,"","","tEsT")

MsgBox(4096,"","tEsT in the CMD (or your app) window means success")

Func ProcessGetHwnd(ByRef $process)
    Local $n
    Local $list = WinList()
    For $n = 1 to $list[0][0]
        If WinGetProcess($list[$n][1]) = $process Then Return $list[$n][1]
    Next
    Return 0    
EndFunc
(got this from the bug forum -- please disregard my post there)

is there a way to use controlclick on a control in an inactive window like controlsend above?

Works if you give it focus first:

#include <guiconstants.au3>

Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

$hGui = GUICreate("Test", 200, 100)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Quit")
$Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 180, 20)
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Mark", 50, 40, 100, 50)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_ButtonHit")
GUISetState()

$pid1 = Run("notepad")

Sleep(2000)
ControlFocus("Test", "", $Button)
ControlClick("Test", "", $Button)

While 1
    Sleep(20)
WEnd

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func _ButtonHit()
    GUICtrlSetData($Label, "Button hit at: " & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC)
EndFunc

Comment out the ControlFocus() and it doesn't work anymore for me.
