Exclusive Program Control

4 posts in this topic

Is it possible to make a script control a minimized program, or a program on a seperate display by itself while the user does something else. Eg: The auto it script inputs text into notepad while notepad is either minimized or running on an extended desktop using the keyboard, while the user surfs with internet explorer using both the mouse and keyboard, but not having the script interfere with the internet explorer operation?

Preferably could the script operate a program while minimized?

Thanks.

Yes. By using the ControlClick, ControlCommand, ControlSend, etc functions, you can operate on minimized or even hidden windows.
