_GUICtrlMenu_GetMenuDefaultItem returns -1

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I do some test with adding menuentries to existing programs.

Found '_GUICtrlMenu_GetMenuDefaultItem.au3' sample that uses notepad.exe (in AutoIt examples).

It should return the DefaultMenuItems.

The sample seems to not work, because "_GUICtrlMenu_GetMenuDefaultItem($hFile))" returns -1.

I heared about that some Autoit Menu functions don't work with newer menus.

Is this correct?

Manfred

#include <GuiMenu.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

_Main()

Func _Main()
    Local $hWnd, $hMain, $hFile

    ; Open Notepad
    Run("Notepad.exe")
    WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]")
    $hWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Notepad]")
    $hMain = _GUICtrlMenu_GetMenu($hWnd)
    $hFile = _GUICtrlMenu_GetItemSubMenu($hMain, 0)

    ; Get/Set File menu default item
    Writeln("File menu default item: " & _GUICtrlMenu_GetMenuDefaultItem($hFile))
    _GUICtrlMenu_SetMenuDefaultItem($hFile, 1)
    Writeln("File menu default item: " & _GUICtrlMenu_GetMenuDefaultItem($hFile))

EndFunc   ;==>_Main

; Write a line of text to Notepad
Func Writeln($sText)
    ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sText & @CR)
EndFunc   ;==>Writeln

It doesn't look to me like Notepad has a default MenuItem. What do you really expect of that script?

;)

Yes, maybe, I don't know.

I thought the first items in each menu are returned!?

That's why I'm asking.

But why did the Autoit developers create this script?

:)
