  • Command Line Parameters?

    I'm a newb, so be gentle...

    I am looking for some information on how to directly launch a program, and use some options that can be turned on using the drop down boxes.

    i.e. File->Open-> etc...

    (This is really focused at having streets and trips automatically launch GPS tracking.)

    I have some experience with VB, so if its needed I can deal with that.

    (I did do a search, but I don't really know what I'm looking for.)

    You need a Macro program such as Scriptit

      Look for SendKeys API.. Basically you launch the application and use SendKeys to control it..

      "SendKeys "%f", true" will be the same as CTRL-F and true will make your application wait for the key strook to finish..

        Scriptit looks like it may work. From what I found alot of people use it to autmate their desktops. But now I can't seem to find it! Microsoft has a link to it, but Page not Found!

        Does anyone have a copy of it? Or know of where I can get it? Or know of any substitutes?

          Maybe you could use something like the windows hwnd API? I use it to get the data from winamp, but I am not sure how you would go about getting it from menu's

              I found a way to do it, but it's a little round about.

              I downloaded this...

              Script.exe

              This allowed me to write scripts to automatically launch and perform certain practically everything within a application. Problem is that you have to write a script as a text file, save it as a .scr, and then launch the program with the program above.

              This is great and all, but no less work then launching the actual program, and clicking your way through the menus.

              A 3 line batch file solved this, but I'm wondering if Scriptit is any easier?
              And is it worth it, since I have this working?

                Scriptit would be similar, you have to launch a shortcut to 'Scriptit textfile.txt'. In the textfile.txt you would put in the program to open and the commands.
