Not sure how to send Ctrl+Alt+O

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm trying to write a script to log me out of our phone system when I lock my computer. However my script isn't working, when I run it the Shortell program acts like I haven't pressed alt(It opens options, which has Ctrl+O as its shortcut).

Here's my script:

;Restore window if its minimized
WinSetState("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", '', @SW_RESTORE)
;Activate the window
WinActivate("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "")
;Send("^!o") ; Normal send
;Click on the window
ControlClick("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "", "WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d1")
;Focus on the window
ControlFocus("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "", "WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d1")
;Press and hold Ctrl+Alt+O
ControlSend("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "", "","^!o")

Any and all help is appreciated!

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.

It works when I lock the computer, but it doesn't press alt(It just options the Shortell options, which uses the ctrl+o command). I see the options window when I log in, but the script isn't sending the correct keypresses to the application even though "^!o" should send ctrl+alt+o

Have you tried using the ControlID, that you use in the ControlFocus command, in the ControlSend command?

Thank you! I added that, and the script works as it when I run it(or compile it into an executable and run that). However, when I lock the screen it doesn't seem to work even though I've added it into scheduler to run when the screen is locked even though scheduler reports that the operation was successful. Any ideas on what to try next? This is the script thus far:

;Restore window if its minimized
WinSetState("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", '', @SW_RESTORE)
;Activate the window
WinActivate("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "")
;Send("^!o") ; Normal send
;Click on the window
ControlClick("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "", "WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d1")
;Focus on the window
ControlFocus("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "", "WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d1")
ControlSend("1539 - ShoreTel Call Manager", "", "WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d1","^!o")
;Press and hold Ctrl+Alt+O

Some windows will not accept the likes of controlclick if it is not active.

When you lock your computer no other window apart from the login screen will ever be active.

I suspect your window is one of those.
