Control Viewer - AutoIt Window Info Tool

A very nice tool Yashied. It is easy to use and has some nice features.

2 suggestions for improvements

1) You do not capture the control name information,. This is available with AU3Info and is very useful when trying to automate .NET applications, if the programmer has remembered to give the controls names.

2) It would be nice to be able to save a report, in tabular format, that included all available information for every control on the current window. You already have most of the information in the listview at the bottom.

Yashied,

I must be doing something wrong as Bowmore seems to have no problem, but I see nothing at all if the various fields of CV. No Window/Control title, class etc.

Tried the exe file and running from source. Sigh...

Can you please advise?

@4Eyes, You are using the 'Browse Tool' correctly, ya? Click and Drag from there to the Window/Control you are targeting. BTW, Yashied, nice.<br>

somedcomputerguy,

Oh... I didn't understand that was the way to use it at all. Yashied said it was quite sim to AutoIT Window Info so assumed I could just hover around a window.

Thanks for advising.

Wait. "Freeze" is enabled per default, so why would you assume CW is like Au3Info with Freeze off? Doesn't really make sense. You must be using a ancient AutoIt.

Holy crap! The single best part of this is that it shows ALL available controls regardless of state. This will be incredibly useful. Thank you sir!

Wow, extremely impressive. This should definitely replace the one packaged with AutoIt3 whenever the next version is released.

Looks really good Yashied. Definitely a candidate to replace the existing Window Info tool.

I have one small problem. When you drag the browse tool over a window that has a scrolled area then the information on the controls doesn't change as the cursor moves across them if the scrolled item covers that area. The information gets locked onto the scrolled window I think. I tried it on my program here but t is probably the same on any scrolling window. If you scroll fully left and fully down so that the scrolled window is not 'under' the icons at th eright then the information is shown as I would expect again.

This is because the controls is overlaping. CV highlights the top control, regardless of its style. But you can always make it invisible (click on checkbox in control's list), and continue to search for control of interest.

OK, I can make the control invisible using the checkbox, but the control highlit isn't the top one; the controls on top are not selected unless I make the bottom window invisible.

But it's not a big problem.
