Windows Explorer Automation: "Choose [Folder] Details..."

1 post in this topic

What I'm trying to do is simple.

When viewing a folder in Windows Explorer, you can enable or disable certain columns in the "Details" view.

I want the script to disable the "Type" column and enable the "Comments" column. It should operate on the active window.

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 4)

;change folder to "Details" view
Send("!vd")
;open "choose details" window
Send("!vc")
Send("{DOWN 2} {DOWN 12} {ENTER}")

The above works, but then if it's executed again, produces unpredictable results, since the items change order depending on which checkboxes are "checked".

Is there any way to access the checkboxes within that window directly?

The AutoIt Window Viewer doesn't show anything, since I gather that it is a "child" object.
