IDEA: Copy and paste into new tab in NoteTab Light
« on: January 28, 2009, 07:44:57 PM »
This should be easy but I can never seem to get it to work.  I want to be able to highlight text on a web page, copy it and automatically copy it to a new tab in Notetab light.  I've taken a stab at it but I'm new to Autohotkey and can't get it to work.

This is what I tried:

;automatically send selected text to notetab in new tab
^#c::
SendInput, ^c
run c:\program files\notetab light\notetab.exe
winactivate, NoteTab Light
sendinput, ^n
sendinput, ^v
return

Can anyone help me with this script?  I know its simple, but I can't get it to work consistently.

Thanks

i don't have notetab to test but the following should work.

#SingleInstance force
SendMode, Input
SetTitleMatchMode 2 ; partial title match
DetectHiddenWindows On

^#c::
SendInput, ^c
Run c:\program files\notetab light\notetab.exe
WinWaitActive, NoteTab Light
SendInput, ^n
SendInput, ^v
Return

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

This is why I love this site.  I can't tell you how much this helps me and how frustrated I was.

you're welcome.. i think the missing link was the "SetTitleMatchMode" command.
