ControlSend and ControlCommand

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am facing a problem with ControlCommand.

Synopsis is as follows

Send(1) works under any circumstances.

ControlSend($Str, "", $ctrl,'2') also works ...

But ControlCommand Doessnt seems to work when inserting text in browser's html page

In IE it does work but only for edit regions.

Where am I going wrong?

Instead of using Send or ControlSend, I want to know is there any other way to send characters to the cursor position?

Any help or suggestion is welcome. Just need a way ...



$Str = 'Google - Mozilla Firefox'
;$Str = 'Google - Windows Internet Explorer' ; in case u r using Internet Explorer.
$ctrl = ControlGetFocus($Str)
$handle = ControlGetHandle($Str, "", $ctrl)
ControlSend($Str, "", $ctrl,'2')
ControlCommand($Str, "", $ctrl, "EditPaste",'3')
ControlCommand($Str, "", $ctrl, "EditPaste",'4')
MsgBox(0,'',$ctrl&' -- '&$handle)

You are using control commands on a window, not a control, so it works. AutoIt cannot 'see' into a html page regardless of the browser. Use the AutoIt info tool and you will see what I mean.

Have a look at the IE Library in the help file. There is also a FF library in the Example Script section.

Looking at the code, I would suspect $ctrl and $handle are equal. If they are not equal then $handle will be the high level container that the html is rendered in. WinList would prove this.

Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.
