Use Au3Info to get the info, then use the functions WinExists, ControlClick.

what i meant is that i've got a button (in a window) that might have either the caption "connect" or "disconnect". i want to press the button when it has the caption "connect" and not do anything when it has the caption "disconnect".

Use Au3Info to get details on control...

if ControlGetText ( "title", "text", controlID ) = "Connect" Then ControlClick( "title", "text", controlID )

it took a while to get the syntax right - this works great! - thanks a lot

With any autoit code examples posted, you can click the functions to goto that part in the online docs.

Here, I'll try to explain..

MsgBox(4096, "", "AutoIt rocks!") ; Click on MsgBox
