Get Autohotkey to work with Sierra Chart?

Anyone know how to get Autohotkey to work with Sierra Chart?

I want to simply have two mouse clicks and I originally tried

 
Code
^Numpad1::
Click 1201, 186
Click 1629, 186
and then I tried

 
Code
^Numpad1::
CoordMode ,Mouse,Relative
WinActivate, Sierra Chart
sleep,100
Click 1201, 186
Click 1629, 186
the latter modifications based upon a post I found by Kiwi, but it's still not working. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Probably the window is not recognized. For this kind of script I suggest to use the AutoscriptScriptWriter (recorder), kinda wizard that makes things easier. Also when you use Winactivate, Sierra Chart and you have different windows with similar names on your workspace, you want to make sure it is the right one; to turn around you can use the function:

SetTitleMatchMode

parameters are:
1: A window's title must start with the specified WinTitle to be a match.(default)
2: A window's title can contain WinTitle anywhere inside it to be a match.
3: A window's title must exactly match WinTitle to be a match.

also, be careful when assigning the Numpad1 a specific function, as long as the script is running (green H in your tray) this key will always stay active and could be mistyped leading to actions you would not like. Solutions are:
1) Pause the script
2) SetTitleMatchMode=1 (the script will work only in the specified window)
