no ListView with Win7 (32 or 64)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I hope someone would be able to assist with my problem.

I've been using a program for a while on Windows XP.

Now, we are switching to Windows 7 (32) and part of my scripts stopped working.

I found that anything related to _GUICtrlListView_ is giving me trouble.

The code to get the handle of the main window and the handle of the SysListView32 works.

The following examples are trying to find an "Issue Number" of a multicolumn ListView.

This example returns 0 (even when entering the handle manually and "Issue Number" exists).

$Line = _GUICtrlListView_FindText($list, "Issue Number")

This example returns blank (even when entering the handle and line manually).

$IssueNumber = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($list, $Line, 1)

Please let me know if any further information is needed.

I've tested this on x64 and 32 bit Win7.

Is the text "Issue Number" in the first column of the ListView? What version of AutoIt are you using? Can you post a short reproducer script that shows the problem? As it is now, it's hard to reproduce it without reinventing your code with no idea how you wrote it.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Sorry about that.

Autoit v3.3.8.0 (Win7) v3.3.6.0 (WinXP)

SciTE v2.28

Cisco Agent v8.0.2.200 (Program with ListView)

My scripts is actually about 2600 lines.

This is the trimmed version of the part of my script giving the issue.

This same script works fine in Windows XP (both 32bit).

Tested script compiled under both XP and 7 using and

-Verified that $Agent is correct. Verified $list is correct. $Line returns 0. $Queue returns blank.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <ListViewConstants.au3>

$Agent = GetAgentHandle()
If Not @error Then
  ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & $Agent)
  $list = ControlGetHandle($Agent, "", "[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:2]")
  If Not @error Then
   ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & $list)
   $Line = _GUICtrlListView_FindText($list, "CSQName")
   $Queue = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($list, $Line, 1)
   TrayTip("Cisco Assistant", "Failed to Find ListView Handle.", 7, 17)
  TrayTip("Cisco Assistant", "Failed to Find the Cisco Agent.", 7, 17)

Func GetAgentHandle()
Local $Agent
$Agent = WinGetHandle("Reserved - Cisco Agent Desktop")
If @error Then
  $Agent = WinGetHandle("Talking - Cisco Agent Desktop")
  If @error Then
   $Agent = WinGetHandle("Work - Cisco Agent Desktop")
   If @error Then
    $Agent = WinGetHandle("Ready - Cisco Agent Desktop")
    If @error Then
     $Agent = WinGetHandle("Not Ready - Cisco Agent Desktop")
     If @error Then
      $Agent = WinGetHandle("Cisco Agent Desktop")
If $Agent = "" Then SetError(1)
Return $Agent
EndFunc   ;==>GetAgentHandle

Please let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas. There has to be some difference between XP and Win7 when reading this ListView.


I've had time to test some more tonight and still no luck.

I've tried changing "_GUICtrlListView_GetItemText" and "_GUICtrlListView_FindText" with "ControlListView".

Still the same results. Works on XP but not Win7.

Tried combinations of "Name or Handle" for the Window with "ClassnameNN or Handle or Advanced Info" for the Control.

Any other way of getting information from a ListView control?

Edit 2:

... I'm speachless ...

The ammount I worked on this just to find the simplest solution is crazy.

I went through every step of the _ListView_FindText() function and found the fault.

I found that I was getting an access error in the internal memory function __Mem_OpenProcess().

This could only mean one thing.......... UAC.

#RequireAdmin seems to be the best rout to ensure a working script. :)

      I have a very strange problem concerning MouseClick function.
      I need to start Control Panel, navigate it on the Display Section (Adjust screen resolution link), click on it, and from the next Dialog choose Intel Graphic tool tab and navigate into it when it opens. 
      I wasn't using MouseClick() at first when I tried to use Control IDs, but I was fed up with the Autoit Window Info poor and inaccurate info (It flickers and the moment I click on the control the control ID and class disappear) so I ended up choosing the easiest way.
      The code I'm posting worked OK until two weeks ago, the mouse clicks were accurately performed and the Script reached the end with no errors...and I was happy.
      All of a sudden, between one try and the other, I noticed the cursor not flying exactly where it was supposed to, namely to the Control Panel ->Display->Adjust screen resolution link   but it clicked some 30 pixels below and some 30 pixels to the left, choosing obviously and undesired function and from that point it screwed the whole thing up. And from that moment onward, it seems I can no longer regain the mouse to click on that sequence.
      Could it be because my Control Panel ->Display form moved slightly from one test to another and therefore I got that small offside?
      If you believe this is the reason, I should then re position the Control Panel ->Display window to 0,0 and recalculate all the clicks. 
      do you have a suggestion?
      Thanks a lot

      I need to open an INTEL Graphic Tool clicking on a Win7 Tray Icon. This icon is not shown on the Win7 Tray but it is shown once you click on a button that shows a little  arrow-up. This button opens up an extension of the tray and there is my INTEL Graphic Tool Icon. 
      The first ControlClick('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', 1502 ) at line 26 of my source code (Rotatedisplays.au3) works fine as it clicks on the up-arrow shown on the uparrowfirst Menu.jpg  picture and opens up an extension of the tray. Then I'm trying to click on the INTEL Graphic Tool Icon which is the first blue icon (up-left) of the tray extension but I failed all my attempts. Can somebody help me out?
