Which programing language?

Posted 28 July 2008 - 12:51 PM

Right, so I need to output a text message to an open window. The tricky part is the display window is run by a different program.

For example, "any text" (or another string) printed in an open NotePad or msPaint window. I have a decent understanding of C++, and Win32 syntax to a lesser extent, but was wondering if there was another language made for this sort of challenge.

So, is there a language that works better for this task than C++?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Visual Studio is not a language...it is an IDE

Actually it would seem that the best way to achieve what you want would be to use a macro language like AutoHotkey. This is what I would use if I wanted to automate things to be opened in a program like Notepad.

VBScript would work as well.
