hey guys, I was wondering if there was any way to use autoit to determine if there is a print job sent to Window's print queue.
What I have are three monitors hooked to one computer. On all three monitors there will be three different print queues to three different printers. When there are no print jobs happening I need there to be three different things going on the monitors(i.e. CNN's headlines on one screen, the weather webpage on another, etc.). That isn't the hard part. However, what I need is when there is a print job detected then that monitor will show the print queue to the printer that received the print job and the other monitors will still show the web pages.
Maybe what I need is a pixelsearch or pixelchecksum that can work for inactive windows? I read that it's possible to do this but I can't figure out how nor can I find any examples of it working in an unactive window.
Any ideas? thanks in advance!
