On Windows 7, when AutoIt3 Window Spy is running, it doesn't freeze when key combination Shift+Alt+Tab is pressed. Instead, the program manager (Alt tab between open windows) appear.


This is a big problem when button ID is a long string, and I have to write it down on paper :(


Is this a known problem with Windows Spy, or is there any Windows settings to prevent this behaviour?


On WIndows XP, Window Spy works as expected.

Any ideas?


Nobody experienced this before, just me?

Hi AlmostThere,


I have suffered the same problem, this seems to work for me:

#IfWinExist ahk_class AU3Reveal
ControlSend,, +!Tab, ahk_class AU3Reveal

My script runs in A_AhkVersion:=, get the latest version at http://ahkscript.org/download/

Check out this AutoHotkey tutorial: http://ahkscript.git...o/AHK_Tutorial/

Read the documentation: http://ahkscript.org.../AutoHotkey.htm

Try this. In case you are unfamiliar with the syntax in "MouseGetPos" i've included it, commented obviously.
;MouseGetPos, [OutputVarX, OutputVarY, OutputVarWin, OutputVarControl, 1|2|3]
MouseGetPos, M_X, M_Y, M_Win, M_Ctrl, 2
;See the help file on this one or it won't make sense why I am using it this way. Syntax below
;ControlGetText, OutputVar [, Control, WinTitle, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText
ControlGetText, OutputVar,, %M_Ctrl%, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText
Msgbox, The text for %M_Ctrl% is %OutputVar%
