Sending data to a read only control for another program.

Recommended Posts


Ok, so I am building a program with a mix of visual basic and autoit.

I would like to use a script to set the data of a read only control on a gui created by a visual basic program. For obvious reasons, sending key strokes wont work...

Could I get an example for this, possibly a udf???

Is this even possible???

This is not possible if the VB control is read-only. You could pull data from it, but not set it. How about setting the controls data in VB code. You can still set data if the control is read-only in VB, not AutoIT.
