Up and Down arrow problems

Recommended Posts

JonAnton

The script I wrote uses Send( "UP or Down" ) to navigate a pull down on a UI. Every time it gets to that point and sends the Up or Down command it Errors out with an "Unhandled Exception" error. I researched it a bit against the code of the UI. When you manually hit the Up or Down key it returns something different than it does when I use the Send command from the script.

Can someone give me a little insight on what might be happening here?

Hi, JonAnton. How about posting your code? Without it, we're simply guessing.

ControlListView() doesn't work for you? That's what a "pull-down" is. It's a list-view.

Wouldn't a pull down be a combobox, and not a listview (generally), and also depend upon what program this "pull down" is in?

That's what I was after, it sounds like a third party combo box, but without more detail from the OP it is impossible to say for sure.

I'm sorry if I didn't explain it properly. It's not in a combo box created with AutoIT. I am the Change Management Officer on a development team. I am writing scripts to perform regression testing on some of our UI's. This problem occurs on our Login screen. I scripted it to enter in the username/password and then when I choose the environment to test (eg.. Development, Integration... etc) I use up/down arrows to choose from the combo box in our UI. This is where I get the error.

This is the code I use to accomplish the login. This will enter the username/password, tab to the first combobox, arrow up to create a starting point, arrow down to choose the environment I want, tab to the next combo box and do the same thing.

AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 100)

send( "" & $login )

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "" & $pwd )

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "{UP}" )

WinWaitActive( "Login", "", 200)

Send( "{Down} ")

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "{UP}" )

Send( "{UP}" )

Send( "{UP}" )

Send( "{Down} ")

Send( "{Down} ")

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "{Tab}" )

Send( "{Enter}" )

Can you read the handles of the controls you're interacting with using the Au3Info tool? Because if you can read them, you can interact with them using ControlSend and/or ControlCommand instead of the very unstable Send commands.

Thank You, I haven't worked with Control Commands yet. I will look into them and see what I can do with them.

Thanks.
