I want to write a program, Python preferred, that controls another windows program. That is, I want to make a skin.
I want to create a program that starts another Win program hidden, presents a user interface of my design and then does nothing more than map interaction with my program to interaction with the hidden program. e.g. if a button is clicked on my interface I want my program to somehow click on the corresponding button of the hidden program. But I want to do more, like text box entries, sliders, click and drag, etc., etc. I want my program to do anything with the hidden program that I could do if I was interacting with it directly.
Can anyone help me as to how I would get started to accomplish that?
