I need to find the command to tell AutoIT to choose a specific browser tab.

For example.  If I have a browser open with Google in the First tab, MSN in the second tab and YouTube in the third tab.  I want to autoit to choose YouTube tab and then perform actions  in that specific tab.  What command do you use in AutoIt.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Maybe something like this:
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

$searchString = "YouTube"

WinActivate("Chrome")
For $i = 0 To 100
    Send("^" & $i)
    Sleep(250)
    If Not(StringInStr(WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"), $searchString) = 0) Then
        \\your code here
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

Open in new window


HTH,
