ControlClick not working on Listbar type control

Recommended Posts

I have a script which needs to be executed by scheduled job - everything works when I'm logged on (I used MouseClick for one event). However when I switch to using ControlClick, it doesn't work.

The control is

>>>> Window <<<<

Title: Backoffice [JFR]

Class: ThunderRT6MDIForm

Position: -4, -4

Size: 1288, 1002

Style: 0x17CF0000

ExStyle: 0x00040100

Handle: 0x00180212

>>>> Control <<<<

Class: SSListbarWndClass

Instance: 1

ClassnameNN: SSListbarWndClass1


Advanced (Class): [CLASS:SSListbarWndClass; INSTANCE:1]



Position: 0, 3

Size: 113, 903

ControlClick Coords: 57, 417

Style: 0x56000000

ExStyle: 0x00000000

Handle: 0x00110368

>>>> Mouse <<<<

Position: 57, 489

Cursor ID: 0

Color: 0x848284

>>>> StatusBar <<<<

>>>> ToolsBar <<<<

>>>> Visible Text <<<<

Blank Form

>>>> Hidden Text <<<<

I'm using

ControlClick($backofficeUser, "", "SSListbarWndClass", "left", 1, 57, 489)

Which doesn't work, but the following does

MouseClick("left", 57, 489)

Can anyone help?

Hi - I need to use the coordinates, as the control is an "outlook" style listbar.

I need to click the "Price Feed Update". The coordinates are correct, its just that the control doesn't seem to receive the correct events.

Using Spy++, when I do it manually I get

<00038> 00890140 R WM_NCHITTEST nHittest:HTCLIENT
<00039> 00890140 S WM_MOUSEACTIVATE hwndTopLevel:004D00F4 nHittest:HTCLIENT uMsg:WM_LBUTTONDOWN
<00040> 00890140 R WM_MOUSEACTIVATE fuActivate:MA_ACTIVATE
<00041> 00890140 S WM_SETCURSOR hwnd:00890140 nHittest:HTCLIENT wMouseMsg:WM_LBUTTONDOWN
<00042> 00890140 S WM_NCHITTEST xPos:59 yPos:448
<00043> 00890140 R WM_NCHITTEST nHittest:HTCLIENT
<00044> 00890140 R WM_SETCURSOR fHaltProcessing:False
<00045> 00890140 P WM_LBUTTONDOWN fwKeys:MK_LBUTTON xPos:59 yPos:376
<00046> 00890140 P WM_MOUSEMOVE fwKeys:MK_LBUTTON xPos:59 yPos:376

However ControlClick does

<00001> 005600F4 P WM_LBUTTONDOWN fwKeys:MK_LBUTTON xPos:51 yPos:379
<00002> 005600F4 P WM_LBUTTONUP fwKeys:0000 xPos:51 yPos:379
<00003> 005600F4 S WM_CAPTURECHANGED hwndNewCapture:00000000
<00004> 005600F4 R WM_CAPTURECHANGED

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.

ControlClick Coords: 57, 417

The coordinates I used above are correct - confirmed with mouseclick (prob a copy paste error in my post above).

The issue is that the control doesn't seem to receive ControlClick events.

Can anyone help?

I used Au3Info.exe

Initially my screen is like this:

I used

ControlClick($backofficeUser, "", "[CLASS:SSListbarWndClass; INSTANCE:1]", "left", 1, 56, 858)

Which works fine, and gives me this:

However no matter what I try (coordinates wise), I can't get controlclick to work on the price feed update button.

There are no keyboard shortcuts on this control.

THe only thing that works in MouseClick, but that isn't suitable as this needs to be a scheduled job.

ControlClick($backofficeUser, "", "[CLASS:SSListbarWndClass; INSTANCE:1]", "left", 1, 51, 377)

Doesn't work.

I'm out then sorry.

I don't have backoffice to try it either, but it seems you have been at it for a while anyway, so it

might just be unfortunate that you cannot do it in this fashion.

I'm not trying to put you off, but there are some controls that will not be manipulated ;)

Well, managed to get a little further, using the _MouseClickPlus script.

I use the _SendMouseMove and then _MouseClickPLus commands, and it appears to click the button.

However I then get the following error:

Initialisation of price feed failed with the following error :
Automation error
An outgoing call cannot be made since the application is dispatching an input-synchronous call.

It was essentially this:

Func _SendMouseMove($Window, $X = "", $Y = "", $Speed = 10)
    Local $WM_MOUSEMOVE  =  0x0200
Local $WinHandle = WinGetHandle($Window)
Local $i         = 0
Local $MouseCoord = MouseGetPos()
$StartX = $MouseCoord[0]
$StartY = $MouseCoord[1]
If $X = "" OR $Y = "" Then
  $X = $MouseCoord[0]
  $Y = $MouseCoord[1]
$StopX = $X
$StopY = $Y
If $Speed > 0 Then
  $JumpX = ($StopX - $StartX) / $Speed
  $JumpY = ($StopY - $StartY) / $Speed
  For $i = 1 to $Speed
   $X = $X + $JumpX
   $Y = $Y + $JumpY
   $lCoords = _MakeLong($X, $Y)
   __SendMessageCall($WinHandle, $WM_MOUSEMOVE, 0, $lCoords)

$lCoords = _MakeLong($StopX, $StopY)
__SendMessageCall($WinHandle, $WM_MOUSEMOVE, 0, $lCoords)

Func __SendMessageCall($WinHandle, $iAction, $iParam, $lCoords)
   DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "PostMessage", _
   "hwnd",  $WinHandle, _
   "int",   $iAction, _
   "int",   $iParam, _
   "long",  $lCoords)
