Windows 7: Focus (I think)

20 Apr 2017   #1

windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Focus (I think)


Thank for any help
Stats: Windows 7 pro 64 bit, UEFI, GPT, GoAsm 64-bit,
updates are disabled, ESET SMART SECURITY,
programming windows 95 by Charles Petzold.

I think I am having a focus problem.
This involves two programs. Program A, I have NO control
over. Program B, I have 100% control over.
Program A needs to stay active as I need to enter it many
times rapidly. I want to transfer a small portion of the
screen of Program A to Program B and execute it and go back
to Program A and repeat the process.
Yes I can do that with MiniTool and Snippng Tool but they are
to slow for the activity I need to perform. Killing the focus
for Program A to get to Program B is not the answer in my opinion.
Is there a reading source that I can use to help me with this problem.
I don't think Petzold discusses this problem.

Do you think a metafile might solve my problem????
Can Program B access Program A using a metafile?????
I have no control over Program A.
