Here is the code I demonstrated.  You can get my FindText version here

Find and click image / Send text to it

** Updated 05/2020** 

While FindText is still a great tool, I recommend you check out the tool I’ve created Automate my Task .  It has many more built-in features as well as allowing you to record multi-step processes, send text, use control clicks & more.


Find and click image with FindText()

I recently played with this great AutoHotkey function FindText().  The program is similar to AutoHotkey’s built-in ImageSearch functionality however it works more reliably and does not need a local file/copy of the image.  The name of the function is a bit misleading in that it really just helps you find and click images.

My first video below demonstrates most of the basic functionality of the tool.  The second video shows the usage of the functions that I wrote to help clicking, sending text, etc.

Here is my version of the FindText function which includes the functions I demonstrate in the second video.  If you’d like the hotstrings I used they are below also (mine are in my main AutoHotkey.ahk file)
