  1. Hello dear community, definitely I need external help now. I've did all 'ControlClick() - Tutorials' and read a lot of topics about interaction betweend AutoIT and external programs. The most of them are about "Clicking a button ...". In my case it's different because I need to click a specific element within the program. The 'program' what I am talking about is called Mendeley. It's library software for documents administration. In the attachements in picture '1.jpg' you can see the red marked Help element. In the picture '2.jpg' you see the context menu of the Help element. This is what I'm trying to do with the ControlClick() function. Following I represent my code which not worked for me: #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) $hWnd = WinGetHandle("Mendeley Desktop", "") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "handle check", $hWnd) ControlClick($hWnd, "Mendeley Desktop", "Help") The MsgBox tells me the number of the handle of the Mendeley window. It's not 0 so for me it means the window is recognized correctly. When I'm execute the script the Help element is not clicked. Any suggestions for me? Kind regards OtenMoten
  2. Hello. Not sure this is the right forum. If I'm wrong, please, let me know. I have a task that I really don't know where to begin at. I have a legacy application built in VB6 (yeah, I know) and lately it has been reported to slow down some of the hours of the day and I'm supposed to have a end-user-experience log for this. I have worked with IE before, doing things like _IEFormGetCollection, then _IEFormElementGetCollection, and manipulating @extended tags, also, _IEFormElementGetObjByName, _IEFormElementSetValue and _IEFormSubmit at the end. Another example is _IEImgGetCollection, then working with the variable properties, like $xyz.src. What I need to do is basically the same. - Collecting GUIForms or elements and Setting values into forms (like _IEFormElementSetValue) - Submitting the info to generate an order on another frame of the GUI, and measure the timing. What I need to know: What function or section to be based upon. I have searched in the help file for over a hour with no luck. I've found some stuff within _WinAPI, GDIPlus, and GUIReference, though I wasn't able to find a suitable function to work with this. I have also searched and read some topics in our forum, but most of them refers to AutoIt GUIs. If I missed something, please, educate me. Of course, I'll post whatever I can share about what could be helpful for other users.
  3. Hello. I'd like to ask some help with IE interaction. Basically, My script opens a webpage, then checks for an expected form named login and passwd: ; Collects info from the opened page $oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE) Local $iNumForms = @extended If $iNumForms = 1 Then $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0) $oObjs = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm) Local $iNumObj = @extended Else ; insert error treatment here Exit EndIf If $iNumObj = 3 Then ; Check if there are 3 objects in the page (login / pass / submit) Sleep(1000) ; Emulating a user typing infos $oObj = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "login") _IEFormElementSetValue($oObj, "barackobama") Sleep(1000) ; Emulating the user $oObj = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "passwd") _IEFormElementSetValue($oObj, "UncleSam2015") Sleep(1000) ; Emulating the user _IEFormSubmit($oForm) Else ; insert error treatment here Exit EndIfIt goes to a loading screen, it usually takes 2-10 seconds. Then, it goes to a main screen dashboard. The ElementGetObjByName gets this info from the page: <input class="CTXMSAM_ContentFont" type="Password" title="Enter password" name="passwd" size="30" maxlength="127" style="width:100%;">I need to verify if it really logs in (kinda worked around this), and how long it takes to load the main screen (that classic loading spinning ball). I was trying to do it by counting the forms or objects, but it's not possible, since there is no forms on the main screen, and both the loading screen and the main screen has 1 object. The main screen though, has an object already identifier (searchbox), but it also doesn't have a name. The code of the searchbox is as below: <input class="searchbox-textbox lighttext" type="text" autocomplete="off" title="Search"> Is there any way for me to track/identify this page with or without IE.au3? Thanks.
