controlclick coordinates help

Recommended Posts

Hi, so I'm currently doing test automation within a program known as Creo Elements. I'm new to AutoIt, and so far I really enjoy working with it. However while I've found automating IE to be really accessible with auto it, I'm having a bit more difficulty automating a program like creo.

I want a solution to automating that doesn't involve mouseclick, as that doesn't scale very well...

I've already looked to this thread for help on the matter:

It seems like specifying the coordinents per each resolutions is a huge hastle, and I would rather get control click working.

But my problem with control click, is there are multiple buttons within creo that all have the same information.

The control information for the button looks as follows:

>>>> Control <<<<

Class: MenuBar

Instance: 1

ClassnameNN: MenuBar1

Name:

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

ID:

Text:

Position: 0, 0

Size: 1139, 27

ControlClick Coords: 348, 14

Style: 0x54000000

ExStyle: 0x00000000

Handle: 0x000B0116

However when I use controlclick like this: ControlClick($sAppTitle,"","[CLASS:MenuBar; INSTANCE:1]")

it doesn't click on the Tools button like I want, it instead clicks on the Resources button.

So my question is can I use the the Control click coords, so that I may specify the location of this button that I want? If so, how I would I input, that, I've tried putting them after the in a manner like:

ControlClick($sAppTitle,"","","[CLASS:MenuBar; INSTANCE:1]","left",1,348, 14)

This is the way it specifies in the help doc, but when I do that I dont get any button clicked at all.

Thank you,

Athos

Oh wow, I can't believe I missed that. Now it seems to work fine.... Thanks John ;) My only problem is that as soon as it the drop down tool menu goes away really fast, is there anyway to slow it down?

Actually, now it's doing this thing where it's clicking on the button but the menu isn't dropping down....I'm wondering whats up with that...

      Cannot find example how to locate taskbar icon coordinates or position by window handle.
      I want to use PixelChecksum to check only rectangle area over specified taskbar item.
      Please help.
      What I already have found and succesfully run for whole taskbar area:
      $taskbar = WinGetHandle("[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]") $taskbarPos = WinGetPos($taskbar) $tasklistPos = ControlGetPos($taskbar, "", "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; INSTANCE:1]")  $iOldCheckSum = PixelChecksum($taskbarPos[0] + $tasklistPos[0], $taskbarPos[1] + $tasklistPos[1], $taskbarPos[0] + $tasklistPos[2], $taskbarPos[1] + $tasklistPos[3]);
      I know also that I can pass window handle as parameter to PixelChecksum, but don't know how to do this with taskbar icon.
       
      Also I was able to find something similar but seems outdated: WatchWindows

      thanks in advance

      #include <Constants.au3> Func Install()    ConsoleWrite("Install EasyLog" & @LF)    Local $handle = WinWaitActive("EasyLog USB Device Driver Installer")    ConsoleWrite("Install EasyLog2 " & $handle & @LF)    Local $blah = ControlClick($handle, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]", "Left", 1)    ConsoleWrite("Install EasyLog3 " & $blah & @LF)    WinClose($handle) EndFunc Install() ConsoleWrite("End of Install!" & @LF) Trying to get AutoIt to click "Install" on the EasyLogUSB Device Driver Installer window.
      Console displays:
      Install EasyLog
      Install EasyLog2 0x001B041E
      Install EasyLog3 1
      End of Install!
      Windows Info confirms the Handle is 0x001B041E

      Window Info for the Control

      For the life of me I cannot figure out why the script is not working. 
      Even $blah says the ControlClick succeeded.
      I've tried Send("{ENTER}") and MouseClick() those didn't work either.
      Any help would be appreciated.
      Thanks.

      Afternoon!
      This is my first post, so I apologize if this is in the wrong place. 
      I've created a while loop to click in a certain area of an application, and have the y axis change at the end of each loop. My loop continues to click at x:27, x:10, even though the $y is adding 15 at the end of each loop. I did a Send($x) and Send($y) into a Notepad to see if the $y had changed after each loop, and the 15 was being added to $y each loop. (If this makes sense)
       
      I'm unsure where I'm going wrong, and would be extremely grateful if someone can point me in the correct direction to fix this. 
      Local $rDirectory = "H:\oDemandProject\fList.txt" Local $rLine = _FileCountLines($rDirectory) Local $x = 27 Local $y = 10 While $rline > 0 WinActivate("OnDemand", "-> 1") WinWaitActive("OnDemand", "-> 1") ControlClick("OnDemand", "", "[CLASS:AfxFrameOrView120u; INSTANCE:1]", "left", 4, $x, $y) $y += 15 $rLine -= 1 WEnd

      #Include <WinAPI.au3> local $ClassName = _WinAPI_GetClassName(WinGetHandle(WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"))) ControlClick(WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"), "", "[CLASS:"&$ClassName&"; INSTANCE:1]", "primary") When I am running this script it just gives me a ConsoleWrite output of "0x001D04A8"
      When using "AutoIT v3 Window Info" all the info I need for the ControlClick is there and displayed perfectly as if I typed it in normally.
      Upon click the button it should be clicking it, I see the following inn the console window:
      If I replace the $ClassName with the actual ClassName of "WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.3296db7_r14_ad1" it works just fine, any ideas???
