  • Hi,

    that is not an easy thing. The other application must have well known interfaces that you can use to achieve your goal.

  • Hi Mjude,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    Would you like to try this way: 

    The robofrom send data to all text fields. You can use roboform for member forms ,notepad , wordpad etc. The forms are filled easily and quickly with robofrom. So you save from the time. I saw similar programme on the internet but it wasn’t free.So I decided to make this programme.

    Best regards,

  • Mike isn't Robo Form applicable only for Web based apps/controls/page as we have access to controls in that scenario.

    And we can not use Robo Form in Windows based applications.
