I've created a macro using AutoHotkey to automate a particularly boring task I have to repeat hundreds of times each day.
The task requires me to get info from a web page, move to an application where I paste info from the web page and process an order, then move to another web page interface for an access database.
AutoHotkey automates the mouse clicks and copy/paste, but if all 3 apps are not laid out properly the macro clicks in the wrong place and everything turns into a mess.
I thought that if I could use windows messages to communicate to each application, I could make the macro work a lot better. No matter where the window was or what screen resolution was used the windows message would work.
Any advice if I'm on the right track here or if I need to look at a different approach? If windows messages are the right approach, any idea on where to start? I've tried using Winspector Spy, but it causes my app to crash so I can't see what messages it's using to process the orders.
