controlclick help

10 posts in this topic

I'm trying to get controlclick to work but there seems to be three different control boxes over what I'm trying to click and I can't seem to figure it out. I've attached 3 pictures of the area I'm trying to click and below is my code

WinActivate("CorelDRAW X4 - [Y:\Laser Etching\C2T00058_Serials.cdr] (Print Preview)")
WinWaitActive("CorelDRAW X4 - [Y:\Laser Etching\C2T00058_Serials.cdr] (Print Preview)")
ControlClick("CorelDRAW X4 - [Y:\Laser Etching\C2T00058_Serials.cdr] (Print Preview)","",59420,"left",1,19,95)

try something like

$hWnd = WinActivate("CorelDRAW X4 - [Y:\Laser Etching\C2T00058_Serials.cdr] (Print Preview)")
WinWaitActive($hWnd)
ControlClick($hWnd,"","CLASS:AfxControlBar80u;INSTANCE:3])

I had to use [CLASS:Afx:62500000:8:00010011:00000010:00000000; INSTANCE:6] instead of CLASS:AfxControlBar80u;INSTANCE:3] do you think that, that will change if it is on another computer?

Hi,

this is just a suggestion...

have you had a look at the command line possibilities to print with CD? they are probably going to be more dependable than trying to code this situation cross platform.

Good Luck !

I wish I could tell you mate, but I dont have that know how.

If you dont have access to another computer where you are, you are best testing it somewhere else aswell.

My guess is yes, it will be the same, but Im pretty much a noob and my advice is less than solid, so my guesses can be rounded down to hit or miss.

In short, just test it out.

Also, if the ID is always the same then maybe you should try that, but in brackets "[59420]" or "[iD:59420]".

Just try everything you can possibly think of mate, two things are for sure, your computer will not blow up and you will advance in your learning.

Good luck.

To be clear, class name is always the same.

The instance can it is just a count of the number of classes of the same name. It should be the same all the time if the program is used in the same way.

Control IDs are nearly always the same, in most cases they will be static. I have seen them be dynamicly created upon execution. Either they change a lot or they don't change at all.

Give yourself some credit John ur not a noob.

To expand on Johns code

Global Const $hWnd = WinActivate("CorelDRAW X4 - [Y:\Laser Etching\C2T00058_Serials.cdr] (Print Preview)")
WinWaitActive($hWnd)
$hControl = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:AfxControlBar80u; INSTANCE:3, ID:59420]")
;also try
$hControl = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:AfxControlBar80u; TEXT:Toolbox")
$hControl = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:AfxControlBar80u; INSTANCE:3")
$hControl = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:AfxControlBar80u; ID:59420]")

ConsoleWrite($hControl & @CR) ; compare against the info tool.
ControlClick($hWnd,"",$hControl) ; since you have the control handle coords are not required.
