Working with toolbars

Recommended Posts

Irides

Hi,

I need to automate clickng a toolbar item on a window of the product I'm testing. The AutoIT Window Info "sees" the whole toolbar. In the Basic Control Info it says "ProfUIS-ControlBar", but there's no identification of the toolbar items. The issue is similar to automation of clicking items like "File", "Edit", "Format" etc on the Notepad toolbar.

Thanks

Irides,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :mellow:

The only way I have found of dealing with such controls is to use ControlClick with the coordinates of the required "button" within the toolbar. The Au3 Window Info tool gives you the coords to use if you use the crosshairs. :P

Thanks!

Using coordinates is what I was thinking too. But I wasn't sure this solution would work with different display resolutions.
