ControlListView not properly selecting entries

Recommended Posts

DGClarke1

I am talking to an application that uses one if these lists, and while I can select an entry of my choice, AutoIT doesn't seem to select it like a mouse does.

I am using this statement :

ControlListView("Window Title", "Window Text", "SysListView32","Select",0)

to select the top item.

This does appear to select it, but not as clicking it with a mouse.

The 2 attached screenshots show the difference.

Autoit.png shows the effect of the statement

click.png shows the effect of clicking with a mouse.

I need the mouse type effect.

Anyone have any ideas? I'd be really grateful.

Dave

Try using _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem, see the help file for how it works, and see if that fixes the issue.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
