Windows Browse Folder Automation

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I'm kind of new to AutoIT scription, but anyway im facing the problem in here with windows generated Browse Folder Dialog.

I'm trying to automate browse for the folder located in the Prog Files, but Dialog is not generated by my aplication, but that appz i'm trying to automate. See image below pls. Is there anyway to auto navigate the curson on the Prog Files Folder in that Browse dialog without to use Arrows? Ther reason is im need to run it on many diff. machines and if i would use arrows keys it could cause problems coz there is not aways the same directory structure on the c: drive.

Thx for any comment or help.

You will have to check out the dialog window and the control with the AutoIt Window Info Tool (AU3Info.exe) and work with the control (probably SysTreeView32 class). You can work it with ControlTreeView() or the _GuiCtrlTreeView_* UDFs. See the help file.

Another possibility is to see if that app keeps the default settings/locations in an .INI or .XML file or registry settings you could edit easily to avoid working with that GUI at all.
