10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I've searched for it but could't find what i was searching for and i have checked the help file.

Well i want that the script will just run in "x program" , and if i minimize the "x program" the script should still be running in just that program, so i can do other stuff while the script is doing things in the "x program"

How can i do this? :S is it possible with Autoit or do i need C++ knowlege?

Hope you understand what im looking for, im not that good att explaing.

Thanks.

Control*()

Run()

ShellExecute()

Still not understanding what your asking, besides you needing to do something with Control*() functions.

How is it hard to understand? ok i'll give it one more try.

(using Internet Explorer as example now)

I make a script that will log me in on msn with internet explorer.

So i want it to log me in meanwhile i do other things on the computer.

Now then? do you understand what im asking for?

Yup, I get it

You want to know if Autoit can "manipulate/transact with" a program, while the program in question is minimized

Good question.....

Most all of the functions will work on windows that are not active, and so even if they are minimized. Exceptions that come to mind are ControlCommand and ControlClick that only work reliably on the active window.

Look in the help file under User Defined Functions > IE Management
