GUICtrlSendToDummy documentation clarification

Reported by: MrGeorge <mscreator@…> Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Dummy hidden GUI Cc:


As we already know, GUICtrlSendToDummy will fail if it's used on hidden GUI with the dummy control.

I think that users should know about it from the docs, there is need to clarify it, something like:


When this function is called a notification that can be handled through the message loop or with a OnEvent function is generated (as if the control had been "clicked" on).
Note that this function will fail if the dummy's GUI is hidden, due to issue with modifying things via the script when hidden.

But if you ask me, i don't think we should have this restriction, put the responsibility on the scripter to handle the events and these issues in his script.
Just warn about the risks in such usage, as it done in other functions.
