Can MEX only operate on main window title?

I am running a program titled, say, TOP and I have a dialog window open within it titled SUB. I want to resize SUB. But when I use the command Window Resize: SUB - (Width: 850 Height: 630) I get TOP resized, not SUB. Is there any way to achieve what I want please? Or can MEX only operate on the 'main' program, not its sub-windows?

It depends on the program that you are running the macro in. It is possible that the child (sub) window is actually a control, in which case, Macro Express will not resize it as there is no way to resize a control. If the child window is a separate window, than it should be able to resize it without any problems. Unfortunately, in your case, it sounds like it is a control.

OK, thanks anyway Jason.

 

I've now therefore abandoned hope of that approach. And I didn't try the Control route as I've never had any success with that, apart from the demo programs like Notepad.
