[RESOLVED] Find Internet Explorer security radio button state

Recommended Posts

dickep

I have searched here and cannot find what I think it the answer.

I have to do an application that reads the tree in the internet explorer security options settings (Internet Explorer -> Tools menu -> Internet Options -> Security tab -> Custom level and read out of the Settings window). Now, while I can get the stuff (all the text that is), I can't figure out how to get the state of each item that has a radio button.

I know, I need code to be here - well, I thing I don't need it since this is just one part, but let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried with _GUICtrlButton_GetCheck?

Yes, in fact, I am putting my code here for all to see (and critique - I can take it). The message box says all the buttons are cleared (same as 0) so...... need some directions/help.

Maybe _GUICtrlTreeView_GetChecked($hWnd, $hItem) ?

Same result - item is cleared or 0

Anyone else tried getting the radio button status from within a Windows application/applet???

dickep,

I have not used it myself but ControlCommand with the "IsChecked" Option is what you want. Something along the lines of:

$IsChecked = ControlCommand("Window Title", "", $idChkBox, "IsChecked") ; Where $idChkBox is the control ID

should do it.

Not sure what you mean here. Each item in the treeview has the same control ID. I have posted the Window Info capture for the 4th and 5th item in the display. They have almost the same information - especially for the control information.

So, not sure how to make this work - if it could.

If you would be so kind as to maybe give an example of how to use this to see the state of the radio button in the window.

Thanks

dickep,

Looks like an interesting control! I am afraid that with IE applets you are now well out of my comfort zone - sorry. :D I know that ControlCommand works nicely with more "regular" controls, which is why I suggested it.

However, there are others around here who know much more. Hang on and they will no doubt pop in some time. Perhaps you should edit the thread title to include "Internet Explorer" - that usually gets the IE gurus running! :huggles:

THanks for you input. I was thinking this was a "regular" control - just part of the applet, but, maybe not.

Not sure how to edit title of the thread but would like to.

When you created the first post you wrote the thread title, so how would you logically change the title? By pressing "edit" on the first post! :D

Anyone else tried getting the radio button status from within a Windows application/applet???

I did something similar, but I was not dealing with a tree, I was dealing with a list.

Not sure if it can help but here it is:

$hWnd = ControlGetHandle("title of the window","","[CLASS:SysListView32]")
$numberOfItemsInList = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($hWnd)

For $i = 0 To ($numberOfItemsInList -1)
     If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemChecked($hWnd, $iIndex) = True Then ; Item is checked, do whatever is required
Next

Thanks, but tried this a while ago - no luck.

Just seems that the IE Security tab does respond to some of the TreeView calls, but not to all of them - unless I am missing something here.

dickep,

It might just me being pessimistic - but perhaps MS have decided to make this particular applet pretty difficult to automate for obvious reasons! :D

However, do not get discouraged too easily - there might well be a solution out there!

I am not getting discouraged, but very frustrated. I am going to find someone somewhere that can help me understand what MS is doing and/or try to ferret out the information. I do need this for some activities - need to make sure that all machines are set the same way and writing them all down is really painful (and not the accepted answer for me)>

Thanks for your help and hope someone will have the help I need

dickep,

Nothing personal, but when you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. :D

OK, I found what I think will work for this . Seems that someone else had the same problem, and, to my happiness, has a solution.

It can be found here if you want to use it.

So far my testing has proved good. Just need to figure out some things, but I can read the help file first, try some things, and then, if necessary, come back here.

For now, consider this SOLVED/RESOLVED.

Thanks all for your input.
