[SOLVED] AUTOIT does not work with TeamViewer?? Help!

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello people,

I just had an idea to create a small program to help maintain Team Viewer contacts and so I need to give focus to the program window first.

But WinActivate() does not seems to work with Team Viewer and does not give the focus to that window (no effect).

It works with other programs.

Also WinGetPos() is not working to get TeamViewer window position...

Is there any other way to give focus to that window and so & so?? Please any suggestion or any thought that may help in some way.

Thanks in advance;)

No idea given of what you tried or how it failed. Before trying to do anything to the window, get the handle with WinGetHandle(). If that fails, what did you try to identify the window? What do you see on the Summary tab of the AutoIt Window Info Tool (AU3Info.exe)?

Ok, first see the screenshot of Window Info tool: http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/4716/screenshot1os.png

Im creating a simple program where I can save TeamViewer IDs with a name along with the ID to know whose that ID belongs (just like a phonebook).

Then I can select a name from my program and the appropriate ID will be pasted into TeamViewer ID field. But i cant manage to set the focus or to activate the TeamViewer window using autoit. It just dont work.

I tried

If WinExists('TeamViewer') Then 
WinActivate('TeamViewer') 
EndIf

but this does not work and does not activate the window. NOTE that it does not work ONLY with team viewer. It works perfect with Notepad window or other prog.

Also tried

$handle = WinGetHandle("TeamViewer") 
If @error Then 
MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Could not find the correct window") 
Else WinActivate('TeamViewer') 
sleep(5000) 
EndIf

but it does not have any effect too... means does not activate or give the focus to the TeamViewer program window...

I'm not in a sufficiently locked down station to click on imageshack links. Just highlight the text on the Summary tab and copy/paste it into

tags.

It seems like autoit just cant control this window. Maybe you can try in your pc ?

Thanx so much...

I don't have it loaded, but would have tried it this way, based on the window info:

$hTeamViewer = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:#32770; TITLE:TeamViewer]", "")
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "Failed to find TeamViewer window.")
    Exit
EndIf

WinActivate($hTeamViewer, "")
If WinWaitActive($hTeamViewer, "", 2) Then
    MsgBox(64, "Success", "Activated TeamViewer window: " & $hTeamViewer)
Else
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "Failed to activate TeamViewer window.")
EndIf

It might be worth bitting out the Style, ExStyle, and WinGetState() values to see if there is anything unusual set on that window, too.

Wow, PsaltyDS, WORKED GREAT, window activated! Thanks very very much bro.

The even good part, is that I i learned that new way to

get the window handle using both Class and Title.

Thanks for your generous help and hope this can help any other too ;)

I just switched to TeamViewer9 since LogMeIn Free will be gone very soon.

This is the script I use:

Quote

Local $tvHandle = 0
#NoTrayIcon
while True
   $tvHandle = WinWait("Sponsored session")
   if Not ($tvHandle = 0) Then
      WinActivate ("Sponsored session")
      sleep(20)
      Send("{Space}")
   EndIf
   sleep(100)
WEnd

Change sleep to your preference. It works great on an "old" win7 x64 AMD laptop I tested it on, mostly using 0% CPU and sometimes flickers 1%.

I also added it to start automatically under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
