Detect window position of other window?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, i have an AutoIt app that i want to launch from a HTA app.

The autoit app is a simple file drop area, and i'd like to position it ontop of the HTA.

Is there a way i can trigger positioning in my AutoIT app from the HTA.

Or a way that let the AutoITApp read the position of the HTA app?

Thanks

Use $WS_EX_TOPMOST exStyle in your AutoIt GUI...

Use WinGetPos() to retrieves the position and size of HTA window.

      Hello,
      I am currently trying to automatically click the "Yes" button in the ActiveX prompt/popup message after opening the IE (html).
      At 1st, I encounter the "Allow Blocked Content". I already resolve it just by changing settings in the IE Options. But after resolving the "Allow Blocked Content", there's a popup message appear.
      I have attached the ActiveX Prompt.
      Here is the 1st code that I try to use.
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> _IECreate("C:\Users\april\Documents\Logo\JRB\AutoIt\AutoBOT\AWD10\sampleAWD10.html",0,1,0) Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) AdlibRegister("_ActiveXRun",250) Local $oLastName = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "Text4") Local $oGetItem = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "getitem") _IEAction($oGetItem, "click") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Element Value", _IEFormElementGetValue($oGetItem)) Func _ActiveXRun() $retWin = WinGetHandle("[Class:Button]","") $winTitle = "[HANDLE:" & $retWin &"]" $ctrlHandle = ControlGetHandle($winTitle,"", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]") $ctrlTitle = "HANDLE:" & $ctrlHandle &"]" WinWaitActive($ctrlTitle,"[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]",10) $k = ControlGetPos($winTitle, "","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]") $x = $k[0] $y = $k[1] WinActivate ($winTitle,"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction?") ControlFocus($winTitle,"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction?","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]") ControlClick($winTitle, "","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]","primary",1,$x,$y) ControlSend($winTitle, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]", "{ENTER}", 0) EndFunc Here is the console output.

      Hello 
      I'm not so familiar with the scriptcontrol, can you help me with this little problem?
      Why is this script not working correctly?
      Global $oVbs = ObjCreate('MSScriptControl.ScriptControl') With $ovbs .Language = "VBScript" .AllowUI = True .AddCode('Class Test:Public Function X:X = 123:End Function:Set C = New Test') .AddCode('MsgBox IsObject(C)'); should be true, no? EndWith MsgBox(0,'',$oVbs.Eval('C').X) Also: how do I add code to the global module?
      Thanks,

      hi everyone
      i have an interesting question about the gold parser:
      info:
      http://www.goldparser.org/index.htm
      download (regsvr32 to register):
      http://www.goldparser.org/engine/1/vb6/index.htm
      on the website it seems that this dll can be used as an activex object,
      does that mean that it can be used in autoit to?
      help for the activeX dll:
      http://www.goldparser.org/engine/1/vb6/doc/index.htm
      it gives me error code '4' if i try to use it... 
      Const $gpMsgAccept = 3 Const $gpMsgCommentBlockRead = 9 Const $gpMsgCommentError = 7 Const $gpMsgCommentLineRead = 10 Const $gpMsgInternalError = 8 Const $gpMsgLexicalError = 5 Const $gpMsgNotLoadedError = 4 Const $gpMsgReduction = 2 Const $gpMsgSyntaxError = 6 Const $gpMsgTokenRead = 1 $Parser = ObjCreate("goldparserengine.goldparser") $Parser.LoadCompiledGrammar("test_script.cgt") $Parser.OpenFile("Program.txt") $Response = $Parser.Parse() MsgBox(0,'test',$Response) If there are people interested in answering or helping feel free to reply and then i will upload the "test_script.cgt" somewhere if you want
      i know this question is a bit specific but you never know.. 
      Thanks for reading!
