Is there a ControlGetName() function defined?

Recommended Posts

ionut

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to set a filter on an array of Controls handles based on the name of the Control. I have looked for a ControlGetName function in the Help file and on the forum but I have not see something similar to what I'd like to have.

Basically, if an array looks like this:

a[0][0]=handle1

a[1][0]=handle2

a[2][0]=handle3

a[3][0]=hanble4

I would like to be able to have on the second position in array the name of the Control like this:

a[0][1]=NameA

a[1][1]=NameB

a[2][1]=NameC

a[2][1]=NameA

because then it would be simple to filter the ones sharing a predefined name line NameA from the rest of the Controls.

Thank you,

Ionut

ionut,

When you say "Name" do you mean the "Text" that is displayed on the control? If so then you need ControlGetText. :idea:

If not, then what exactly are you looking to store in your array?

Hi Melba23,

No, I'm not referring to the Text. I already have this piece of information for each Control. I am referring to the Name of the Control as it appears in the AutoIT Windows Info, Control tab, Name or Advanced mode fields. One example taken from my application is [NAME:textEditNetwork].

To be more precise, I would like to get "The internal .NET Framework WinForms name", as defined in the AutoIT help.

Thanks,

Ionut

ionut,

Sorry, no idea how to get the NAME programmatically. :) I only know _WinAPI_GetClassName which gets the CLASS.

I will ask a Mod to move this to Developer's Chat - you stand more chance of getting an answer there.

P.S. 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. :idea:

The link below contains some functions for getting the names of controls. You may need to update them slightly to work with the latest version of AutoIt.
