ok so if i have a program called programX, how do i make it do something when programX is not active


I do not know if you want to make programX active and then work with it or if you want to work with it while it is not the active window... you can make it active via WinActivate --- or:

Open the help file Contents >> AutoIt >> Using AutoIt >> Controls

After you carefully read thru that, look at the related info links at the bottom.

It will depend on what you want to do and if programX will work with controls.


Edit: added "Contents"

If ProcessExists('someprogram.exe') Then

MsgBox(0,'It does exist!', 'It does exist, put more commands in this section')


MsgBox(0, 'It doesn't exist!", 'The program is not running, put more commands here to do what you want when its not running...')


Writing AutoIt scripts since

_DateAdd("d", -2, _NowCalcDate())
