Control slider(trackbar)

Recommended Posts


I working on generating API for some Windows GUI aplication.

Its includes Slider bars - which i now get is called trackbar . ( this aplication was not made in autoit )

How can i move the slider bar ? From what i see in the "AutoIt v3 Window Info"

This control is called msctls_taskbar32

And I dont know even how to catch the position of the slider market

The slider is just another control - so use the Slider functions in the Help file:

#Include <GuiSlider.au3>

$hSlider = ControlGetHandle("Win_Title", "Win_Text", "[CLASS:msctls_trackbar32;INSTANCE:1]") ; put your own values in here as given by the Info tool

ConsoleWrite($hSlider & @CRLF) ; Just check you have a valid handle

$iPos = _GUICtrlSlider_GetPos($hSlider)

ConsoleWrite($iPos & @CRLF) ; Should be the slider position

Many other slider commands are listed in the Help file - over to you. :)
