Help on Control send command Please

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have a window I need to send an ENTER key to finsih an install. I need to do this while the PC is not logged in

(the PC will be at the CTL ALT DEL screen)

The Autoit v3 Window info shows the following:

Title: NexGen

Class: #32770

Under the Control Tab

Class: Static

Text: "Your computer must be.."

ID: 65535

Under the Window Tab

Title: NextGen

Class: #32770

I have this as the command

ControlSend("NextGen", "Your computer must be restarted to complete the update. Restart now?", "65535", "{ENTER}")

Please let me know what I'm missing...

Thanks

Try

ControlSend("NextGen", "Your computer must be restarted to complete the update. Restart now?", 65535, "{ENTER}")

or

ControlSend("NextGen", "Your computer must be restarted to complete the update. Restart now?", "[CLASS:#32770]", "{ENTER}")

Darn,

These did not work.

I think need to add command to make the window active:

ControlFocus("NextGen", "Your computer must be restarted to complete the update. Restart now?", "65535")

ControlSend("NextGen", "Your computer must be restarted to complete the update. Restart now?", "65535", "{!Y}")

Still doen't work any sugestions?

You can't make the window active if the screen is locked, or you're at the Log In screen.

BTW, I noticed that your window title, as shown in your first post, is listed as NextGen in one place and NexGen in another. Make sure your window title is correct first. Second, you might want to shorten the text parameter for the window you're searching for unless you're positive that the text you have listed is what is actually showing in the window info tool.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

You might try using ControlClick instead. Also, try either "[iD:65535]" for the ID, or just 65535 (without quotes).
