Clicking subcontrols within a control

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm trying to use ControlClick to select a saved session in Putty.

The control ID is 1052, and this refers to the entire area where you can load, save or delete a saved session:

I want to click on Nagios. I've tried specifying the coordinates of the click:

ControlClick ("PuTTY Configuration", "", 1052, "left", 1, 32, 80);

but this doesn't work.

What do I need to do? Thanks.

In Putty, I have to click on Nagios first. I can double click on it without needing to click on Load.

I'm guessing there is a invisible control covering all the controls in the "Load, save or delete a stored sessions" group. (perhaps group controls do this themselves)

The control that you want to click looks like it could be a ListBox.

Use this script to try and get all the controls within the window. That way you can look for a control that is most likely the one you want to click and send the ControlClick to that one, or use ControlCommand on it.

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <array.au3>

$hWnd = WinGetHandle("PuTTY")
If Not $hWnd Then 
    ConsoleWrite("Putty Window not found" & @CRLF)
$aControls = _WinAPI_EnumWindows(True, $hWnd)

You could also blindly try to use "[CLASSNN:ListBox1]"
