controlclick problem

Recommended Posts

He is my script

1-Shellexecute("watchhdtvplay", "", "c:\documents and settings\desktop")

2-Sleep(10)

3-Controlclick("watchhdtvplay", "", "[class:button; text:open; instance:2]")

He is my info from Info Tool

Basic Window Info

Title-Watchhdtvplay

Class-#32770

Basic Control Info

Class-Button

Instance-2

Control Tab from Info Tool

Class-Button

Instance-2

Classnamenn-Button2

Advanced(Class)-Class:Button; Instance:2

ID-1000

Text-Open

Pos-354,29

Size-54,20

Controlclick Coords-29,14

Style-0x0018000

Exstyle-0x00000004

Handle-0x00302ee

The script will run to command 2 and stop. The window that opens is active. Steps 1 and 2 act as anticipated. The purpose of the controlclick function is to click on the "open" button and activate it. Can anyone see where I'm going wrong.

Thanks

<rant>Please use code tags, they are your friends :idea:

They make reading much easier, and the autoit tags will link keywords directly to the documentation. It just makes everyone's lives easier.

Shellexecute("watchhdtvplay", "", "c:\documents and settings\desktop")
Sleep(10)
Controlclick("watchhdtvplay", "", "[class:button; text:open; instance:2]")

It's possible that the documentation is just a bit more of a stickler for details, but you might be having a problem because of improper capitalization. Try this:

Shellexecute("watchhdtvplay", "", "c:\documents and settings\desktop")
WinWaitActive ('Watchhdtvplay'); Just demonstrating a different way of doing it, possibly faster, definitely more reliable
Controlclick("Watchhdtvplay", "", "[class:Button; text:Open; instance:2"); capitalized to match output from Info Tool

It might seem like cheating a little, but you can often just copy and paste the bit from the 'Advanced(Class)' line and be done with it (no typing - yay!).

Two things:

1. 10 milliseconds is not long enough to wait before trying to interact with a new GUI. Use WinWait() to wait until it comes up before trying to use it.

2. Window title matches are case sensitive: "watchhdtvplay" <> "Watchhdtvplay"

:idea:
