Python: how to activate second IE window?

Hi,

I am new to Python and I am using PAMIE to manipulate IE browser. Currently, I have IE window 1 launched, after I clicked on a link on window 1, a second IE window 2 isopened. Then, I want to activate IE window 2 (click button or change url), the focus keeps on IE window 1 and click on the button on window 1. I have used "def windowFind" from the PAMIE and able to find IE window 2. Can someone please tell me how to activate IE window 2 so I can click on the button etc..?

Many thanks,

Mary

I'm guessing here, but it seems to me that if
window2 = windowFind(whateveryouputhere)
then it's probably
window2.activate() # maybe with a capital
If you search thescripts for "cPAMIE", you'll find some interesting discussions.
Posting code always helps, too.

The PAMIE project seems very interesting. It's too bad that the docs are so limited. The best that I could find is

So somebody is still working on it. Hope that helps some.
