Welcome to the AutoIt forums martimario :D

The easiest way is to get an AutoIt script to simulate the keypresses you would make yourself. Look up Send in the help. To start the sequence you could use a key combination so look up HotKeySet as well.

Try something with those and if you get stuck post what you have tried with an explanation. Good luck!


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

Also look at WinMenuSelectItem

Also look at WinMenuSelectItem

This is the syntax of WinMenuSelectItem command: WinMenuSelectItem ( "title", "text", "item" [, "item" [, "item" [, "item" [, "item" [, "item" [, "item"]]]]]] )

How can I define de title of the window of my application?

Thanks

I don't have that app but according to their screenshots the title is MPLAB IDE and the version number so it should be something like.

WinMenuSelectItem("MPLAB IDE", "", "&File","&Open")

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.
