Can't click in a minimized window

8 posts in this topic

Hi all,

What i'm trying to do is to send a mouse click to a minimized window. The program in this case is called "WinWap" (www.winwap.com), i want to gathering some informations from a WAP page while using the computer.

Here is the "Autoit Window Info" of it:

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:  Winwap Portal - Home - WinWAP for Windows
Class:  TMainForm
Position:   -8, -8
Size:   1280, 786
Style:  0x16CF0000
ExStyle:    0x00010110
Handle: 0x002F0564

>>>> Control <<<<

For some reason, the _MouseClickPlus() don't work here. I tried the follow code on paint, just for test purpose, got no results:

For $f = 200 to 600
        $handle = ControlGetHandle(WinGetHandle("Sem título - Paint"), '', '[CLASS:Afx:1000000:8;INSTANCE:1]')
        _MouseClickPlus($handle, "Left",  $f, $f,1)
    Next

*the _MouseClickPlus function was already attached to the script.

I tried to use ControlClick() istead of _MouseClickPlus(), like this:

For $i = 200 to 600
        ControlClick("Sem título - Paint", "", "[CLASS:Afx:1000000:8; INSTANCE:1]", "Left", 1, $i, $i)
Next

I also tried the both codes with #RequireAdmin, didn't work too. I use Windows Vista.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance.

Check your _MouseClickPlus() parameters. First is title, not handle.


For those who are asking questions, look in the help file first. I'm tired of people asking stupid questions about how to do things when 10 seconds in the help file could solve their problem.[quote name='JRowe' date='24 January 2010 - 05:58 PM' timestamp='1264381100' post='766337'][quote name='beerman' date='24 January 2010 - 03:28 PM' timestamp='1264372082' post='766300']They already have a punishment system for abuse.[/quote]... and his his name is Valik.[/quote]www.minikori.com

DeathRow, it is considered general forum etiquette not to resurrect threads after about a year or so. The AutoIt language advances at such a pace that what was suggested in 2010 may not work for you today. I would suggest opening a new thread, clearly explaining what you would like to accomplish, as well as what you have already tried on your own, and showing a small piece of reproducer code. This way, we can do our best to assist you :oops:

Edit: grammar

Not to mention, that was an extremely rude way of asking for help.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
