in reply to Win32::CtrlGui::wait_for_window is only partially working

Try inserting a pause:

use Win32::CtrlGUI; my $window = Win32::CtrlGUI::wait_for_window(qr/Notepad/); sleep 1; $window->send_keys("!fx");

I had a similar problem, with an application that was taking too long to finish drawing it's window.

If you had the same problem, you would have to check if specific fields inside the window are already drawn before sending keys.

[Copacetic]: Sorry, I've just discovered that it gives a useful error message if I select "preview" (as well as removing the "create" button for some reason). It was that my title wasn't long enough. Thanks for your help.
