ControlClick in Adobe Acrobat Reader plugin

3 posts in this topic

All right, I've fought this with for a few hours now, and I'm coming here to ask.

Background: The browser has a window with a generated PDF in the Adobe Acrobat plugin. I need to save that PDF to a file for later transfer.

Notes: Disabling the PDF plugin to the browser is not an option.

Issue: ControlClick returns "success", but I don't get the "Save As" window.

Here's the code I'm using.

ShellExecute("http://devbox/test.pdf")

; Get handle to prove that the window's opened
$whndPDF=""
while ($whndPDF=="")
    $whndPDF=ControlGetHandle ( "test.pdf", "", "[CLASS:AVL_AVView; INSTANCE:21]")
    sleep(1000)
WEnd
MsgBox(0,"ControlGetHandle",$whndPDF & @error,3)  ; This gives me a successful hexcode for the control...

; Try to save the PDF
ControlFocus("test.pdf", "AVToolBarEasel", "AVL_AVView21")

; This returns 1, saying it successfully returned, but there's no "Save As" window.
$Check=ControlClick("test.pdf", "AVToolBarEasel", "[CLASS:AVL_AVView; INSTANCE:21]", "primary", 1, 64, 20 ) 
MsgBox(0,"ControlClick",$Check,3)  

; Tried this, too, in case it couldn't handle the "advanced" class convention... no dice.
;$Check=ControlClick("test.pdf", "AVToolBarEasel", "AVL_AVView21", "primary", 1, 64, 20 ) 
;MsgBox(0,"ControlClick",$Check,3)

And here's the WindowInfo output:

>>>> Window <<<<

You are trying to do a controlclick in Firefox. look for ff.au3. It will do what you need.

My apologies; my devbox defaults to Firefox, but the end-user script is going to have to run on IE. Here's the AutoIT window output for the IE window:

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:  http://devbox/test.pdf - Windows Internet Explorer
Class:  IEFrame
Position:   36, 168
Size:   1022, 708
Style:  0x16CF0000
ExStyle:    0x00000100
Handle: 0x000E07DC

>>>> Control <<<<
Class:  AVL_AVView
Instance:   21
ClassnameNN:    AVL_AVView21
Advanced (Class):   [CLASS:AVL_AVView; INSTANCE:21]
ID: 
Text:   AVToolBarEasel
Position:   0, 119
Size:   1006, 38
ControlClick Coords:    59, 15
Style:  0x56000000
ExStyle:    0x00000000
Handle: 0x00010AB6

And the slightly updated .au3 code to deal with the difference in the title bar:

; Get handle to prove that the window's opened
$whndPDF=""
while ($whndPDF=="")
    $whndPDF=ControlGetHandle ( "http://devbox/test.pdf", "", "[CLASS:AVL_AVView; INSTANCE:21]")
    sleep(1000)
WEnd
MsgBox(0,"ControlGetHandle",$whndPDF & @error,3)  ; This gives me a successful hexcode for the control...

; Try to save the PDF
ControlFocus("http://devbox/test.pdf", "AVToolBarEasel", "AVL_AVView21")

; This returns 1, saying it successfully returned, but there's no "Save As" window.
$Check=ControlClick("http://devbox/test.pdf", "AVToolBarEasel", "[CLASS:AVL_AVView; INSTANCE:21]", "primary", 1, 64, 20 )
MsgBox(0,"ControlClick",$Check,3)

I am using IE.au3 for the "larger" script, as opposed to just the chunk that doesn't seem to be working. I will go look at ff.au3 in case it lights up any bulbs, but any nudge towards what I'm looking for will be helpful.
