Scheduled Macro For Hidden Window

Hi there!

 

I know I can make a macro that goes off as soon as a window title is on top, or a specific control has focus. however, is it possible to make a macro, that is scheduled to go off, when a window pops up, but is hidden behind other windows.

 

I have a program that asks for prompts, but those prompts don't steal focus. I wand a macro that will note as soon as one of them shows up, go to it, hit enter, and then go back to what I was doing.

 

Is that possible?

Are you saying that the “Window Title” activation doesn’t work unless the window has focus? I thought it didn’t matter but I don’t think I have ever had a case where a window would popup w/o focus.

 

If that is the case then I think you’re hosed. The only thing I could think of is if you had a macro that went off at a regular interval and checked all the window titles to see if one existed but that would not be very elegant.
