checkbox state from Windows wizard?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, everyone. Thanks to you all, I am a newbie, but I've already benefited greatly from all the helpful posts on this site.

I am trying to do something that I think is simple, but I haven't been able to find a post on this site about it yet (it probably already exists, I just couldn't find it searching here or via Google).

How do I get the status of a checkbox from a built-in Windows wizard? I'm trying to see if the box is checked or not and uncheck it if it isn't. This will successfully toggle the checkbox:

ControlClick("Add Printer Wizard", "&Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:4]")

I don't know, however, how to check to see if the checkbox is checked or unchecked. I tried using ControlGetHandle and GUICtrlRead to no avail (perhaps GUICtrlRead will only work with a GUI that I've spawned).

Thanks for your help.

Try this

$_IsChecked = ControlCommand ( title, text, ControlID, "IsChecked", "" )

title, text, ControlID can be found by Auto Window Info Posted Image
