click on flash button

Recommended Posts


dear all

i did a very simple script to open speedtest website and run connection speed test. To click on the "Begin Test" button i've used the mouseclick() function with position of mouse cursor. The problem is that if i maximize the IE window or the window is opened in another position of the desktop, i need to change the "x.y" coordinates of cursor or the "click" is out of button.

the button is in the Flash part of page and Auto Inform It is reporting these informations(attached)

there is a way to make a "click" on a Flash object ? i've used controlclick but it is not working or i don't know how to use it

ControlClick("Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed","","[CLASS:MacromediaFlashPlayerActiveX1]","left",350,24) = FAILURE

ControlClick("Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed","","[CLASS:MacromediaFlashPlayerActiveX]; INSTANCE:1","left",350,24) = FAILURE

please there is someone that can help or clarify if it's not possible ?

thanks a lot

Thanks AlmarM but .... it's not helping in my case , here is script modified as you suggest


Run(@ProgramFilesDir & ' (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe' & ' www.speedtest.net')

WinSetState("[CLASS:IEFrame]", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)



;WinActivate("Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed","")

ControlClick("Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed","","[CLASS:MacromediaFlashPlayerActiveX; INSTANCE:1]","left",350,25)



;IF $PID Then ProcessClose($PID)


the WinActivate() i have read is required by controlclick but seems there is no difference with or without.

if i use mousemove + mouseclick it works, but in this way the mouse cursor coordinates are referred to IE window and not to Flash part , so each time IE open window in different position of desktop the cursor point should be changed in order to click the button and not something different.

Looking the WindowsInfo / Control window it seems the controlclick can use coordinates of mouse cursor referred to flashObject borders, or not ?

thanks a lot
