Problem with control click

Recommended Posts



I am using the AutoItX in a C# application. It works great and I have already automated 99% of the stuff I wanted to do. Now, for some strange reason, I am

struggling with the click of a button (In my application, I clicked >100 buttons, and all worked without problems, but for some reason this one is different!?

These are some of the statements I already tried:

au3.ControlClick("AbbeyClone_12072012_205636_deg15.pir - Arta", "", "[iD:1312]")

au3.ControlClick("AbbeyClone_12072012_205636_deg15.pir - Arta", "", "[iD:1312]", "LEFT", 1, 10, 10) // added coordinates because it is a control with 2 buttons for up/down, 10/10 corresponds with the center of the top button

au3.ControlClick("AbbeyClone_12072012_205636_deg15.pir - Arta", "", "[CLASS:msctls_updown32; INSTANCE:6]")

au3.ControlClick("AbbeyClone_12072012_205636_deg15.pir - Arta", "", "[CLASS:msctls_updown32; INSTANCE:6]", "LEFT", 1, 10, 10)

au3.ControlClick("AbbeyClone_12072012_205636_deg15.pir - Arta", "", "[CLASS:msctls_updown32; INSTANCE:6]", "MIDDLE", 1, 10, 10)

All do NOT return "1" (and the button is not clicked of course...)

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Ok, I made a studpid mistake that took me quite long to figure out. The name of the window is "Untitled - Arta" and is only changed to "AbbeyClone_12072012_205636_deg15.pir - Arta" after the file is saved. The save instruction was after the ControlClick command of the updown control...

So statement 'au3.ControlClick("- Arta", "", "[iD:1312]", "LEFT", 1, 10, 10)' now works perfectly (WinTitleMatchMode=2 in my app)
