Re: AutoHotkey C++ Powerhouse: Introduction

Nice list. And I will definitely vote for TCC as a useful tool, that some might not know about.

Nice i would not have believed this without these proofs. Nice
I was a little surprised myself. AutoHotkey is definitely one of those skills that goes under the radar, but is highly useful in various situations.

Re: AutoHotkey program used for PC and Mac?

Because AutoHotkey is open source and under the controversial GPL, there are probably some unknown versions that are used privately and not released to the public. Where open source projects are under the more business friendly MIT license, they can release their code to the public, and can choose w...

Re: Other tools for automation?

Definitely some of the AutoHotkey web wizards should jump on the geckodriver for automating FireFox. https://github.com/mozilla/geckodriver/releases As far as browsers go, FireFox is just as, if not more popular, than Internet Explorer & Edge. AutoHotkey definitely has Internet Explorer & Edge (Edit...

Re: Screen Resolution Issues

Even if I get the control co-ordinates, I have a problem. There is a control with 5 buttons in it. I need to use ControlClick with the control address and the X Y offset to trigger each button. The X Y coordinates vary in these PCs. So even using controls or getting coordinates from controls are no...

SOTE I have used the above methods extensively.

Re: Screen Resolution Issues

I've tried the SysGet, to get monitor size and use it instead of resolution. Didn't work either. The coordinates of the buttons were the same location on both PCs with different resolutions! Then I have some client PCs which the button coordinates do not match. I'm a bit confused to exactly what yo...

A lot of people use VirtualBox (https://www.virtualBox.org/wiki/Screenshots). From experience, it works pretty well for running Android applications.

Re: URGENT: Screen Resolution Issues

In situations where you want a script to run on multiple computers, it's often best to look at using the keyboard or commands like ControlSend, ControlClick... The ControlSend and ControlClick often make for the most transportable type of automation scripts between computers. ControlSend [, Control,...

Re: Making a demo version of our apps.

Seems to me that you would have 2 versions of the program. One would be a limited version, lacking features, but that they can freely download. The advantage of the trial version is there is nothing much to hack/crack. Success in breaking that will get the person nowhere. Though you could have some ...

Like this should work.

Code: Select all
