Cannot SEND commands to Active Window

3 posts in this topic

I am attempting to kick off an application with my script, change the value of a drop-down menu and click a couple of buttons. THe application opens. I used Au3recorder to get the code for the dropdown and button presses. The applcation opens, but none of the send commands are working. Even when I used mouseclicks, those did not work. Below is the snippet of the script.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <Array.au3>

#include <WinAPI.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <EditConstants.au3>

#include <TabConstants.au3>

#include <UpDownConstants.au3>

#RequireAdmin

#NoTrayIcon

$debugging = True

FileChangeDir (@ScriptDir)

; Enabling USB Write

RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c Enablewrite.bat","",@SW_SHOW)

; Programming USB Plunger

WinWait("Delcom Setup Utility Ver 1.0","Device Name: \\?\hid")

WinActivate("Delcom Setup Utility Ver 1.0","Device Name: \\?\hid")

MouseClick("left",204,182,1)

MouseClick("left",176,314,1)

MouseClick("left",401,331,1)

WinWait("Program Manager","FolderView")

WinActivate("Program Manager","FolderView")

MouseClick("left",42,93,1)

WinWait("Confirm","Program device with ")

WinActivate("Confirm","Program device with ")

MouseClick("left",50,94,1)

WinWait("Delcom Setup Utility Ver 1.0","Device Name: \\?\hid")

WinActivate("Delcom Setup Utility Ver 1.0","Device Name: \\?\hid")

MouseMove(26,40)

MouseDown("left")

MouseMove(25,39)

MouseUp("left")

MouseClick("left",559,335,1)

RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c Disablewrite.bat","",@SW_SHOW)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've also tried it this way:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <Array.au3>

#include <WinAPI.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <EditConstants.au3>

#include <TabConstants.au3>

#include <UpDownConstants.au3>

#RequireAdmin

#NoTrayIcon

$debugging = True

FileChangeDir (@ScriptDir)

; Enabling USB Write

RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c Enablewrite.bat","",@SW_SHOW)

; Programming USB Plunger

WinWaitActive("Delcom Setup Utility Ver 1.0","Device Name: \\?\hid")

Send("{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive("Program Manager","FolderView")

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive("Delcom Setup Utility Ver 1.0","Device Name: \\?\hid")

Send("{TAB}{ENTER}")

RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c Disablewrite.bat","",@SW_SHOW)

Does using the Window Info tool give you the control IDs/Classes of the dropdowns and buttons? Using strictly coordinates and TABing isn't generally the way you would want to approach it unless you absolutely have to.

“Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

Hi, dachizzla, welcome to the forum. I think Control commands will serve you better for this application. If you use the AutoIt Window Info tool (Inside the AutoIt directory: Au3Info.exe), you'll see that every drop-down and checkbox has an ID. This app almost looks like an AutoIt tool, so you should easily be able to find the ID and then Use a ControlSend or other method to interact with it.
