AutoIT support iOS?
Unable to find this info on AutoIT site. Would like to know, whether AutoIT supports automation on iOS laptop/desktop? Anybody tried earlier?
AutoIT is a windows application.
AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys). AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes” required!
Thanks Joe for the info..
A more technical explanation, the answer is No.

Now in the context of an emulator, like iOS simulator, those components are not windows native, and they are being rendered in a view. From MSAA's point of view, that view is no different than a big image
