Can I use positon & size properties to localize a control

Recommended Posts


Here is my control's info.

>>>> Control <<<<

Class: ThunderRT6TextBox

Instance: 34

ClassnameNN: ThunderRT6TextBox34


Advanced (Class): [CLASS:ThunderRT6TextBox; INSTANCE:34]

ID: 67

Text: 1879

Position: 202, 374

Size: 102, 21

ControlClick Coords: 48, 16

Style: 0x540100C0

ExStyle: 0x00000200

Handle: 0x000F0A02

I wander if I can use position to localize it,like this :ControlSetText($winName,"","[class:ThunderRT6TextBox;Position:202,374;Size:102,21","2123")

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :(

if I can use position to localize it

Yes, but not with your syntax. Go and look at the Help file under <Using AutoIt - Controls> and you will see all the possibilities. Among them is "X \ Y \ W \ H - The position and size of a control".

So this should work:

ControlSetText($winName, "", "[CLASS:ThunderRT6TextBox;X:202;Y:374]", "2123")

Give it a try and see. :)
