select an existing tab

Recommended Posts


Hi there,

I don't know if what I'm going to ask is viable. I'm a supernewbie in AutoIt, so still have many doubts about how it works. Well, I'm trying to automatically test an existing application with its own GUI.

My script simply runs an exe application, which opens the GUI. Then I want to select a Tab item automatically.

Let's say I have the following tab items : products / orders / offers

Is there any way to make the script set the focus on a given tab item based on its name?

thanks in advance!

You may be able to try


But it may only work on AutoIt created GUIs

If that is the case, then you can try using controlclick getting the info you need from the window info tool supplied with AutoIt.

I used the 'controlclick method' in one of my scripts, and it works fine.
