To what end? :unsure:

If you want to action the control using ControlClick then you can already define the control using the coordinates as a parameter. Look at <Using Autoit - Controls> in the Help file to see how. :>

If you know the exact X/Y coordinates of the upper left corner of the control, relative to the the client area of the parent window, then this works:

$hButton = ControlGetHandle($hGUI, "", "[X:100; Y:100]")

Note that works with the coordinate OF THE CONTROL, not just any coordinate in the control.

To find the control by giving an X/Y coordinate somewhere within it, look for use of WindowFromPoint function, but that uses screen relative coordinates:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

Global $hGUI, $idButton, $hButton

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 300, 300)
$idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("TEST", 100, 100, 100, 100)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

        Case $idButton
            $hButton = ControlGetHandle($hGUI, "", "[X:100; Y:100]")
            ConsoleWrite("$idButton = " & $idButton & "; $hButton = " & $hButton & @LF)

        Case Else
            $avMousePos = MouseGetPos()
            $avWinFrmPt = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "WindowFromPoint", "int", $avMousePos[0], "int", $avMousePos[1])
            $hWinFrmPt = $avWinFrmPt[0]
            ToolTip("HWND = " & $hWinFrmPt & @LF & "X = " & $avMousePos[0] & "; Y = " & $avMousePos[1])
