Hello:
I was wondering if someone could give me some direction in leaning how to access and control other windows using a separate program. For instance, I want to be able to detect when a window taskbar button blinks (saying something happened), open that window, then capture (alt-printscreen) and print a picture of that window into a file. Can someone give me some sample code or direct me to documents that would help me do this? I�m working with Java, so java related help would be most appreciated.
Thanks a bunch in advance!
