Testing a Control Button

2 posts in this topic

Been reading in this forum about disabled controls and I almost have an answer.

Need to check for a certain Control (a button) being disabled; if it is then there are no errors.

0 errors dictates one course of action, 1 error dictates another action and > 1 error is something else.

plans are to use an if-then-else (pseudocode below):

if guictrlgetstate($ctrlID)= 64 then ;64=enabled=1 or more errors/128=disabled=no errors

(get rid of errors here)

endif

SOMETHING ELSE; HOW DO YOU SPECIFY THE "$CTRLID"?? I KNOW THE NUMBER IS 1027, BUT HOW DO YOU SAY THAT??

I'm not sure you are going to get useful state from a non-AutoIt window's control that way.

You might have to use _WinAPI_GetWindowLong() using the $GWL_STYLE option and interpret the bits per MSDN: Window Styles:

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>

$hButton = ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:#32770; TITLE:Save As]", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")
$iState = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong($hButton, $GWL_STYLE)
ConsoleWrite("$hButton = " & $hButton & @LF & "$iState = " & $iState & @LF)

Another problem with your approach is that more than one state can be present at the same time. So even if the control is enabled and its state is returned as you expect, the value might not be exactly 64. You have to check a particular bit:

If BitAnd(GuiCtrlGetState($ctrlID), $GUI_ENABLE) Then
