Autoit Window info tool not recognizing controls in an external application

Recommended Posts

Please help me in my small doubt..

I wanted to find whether a button is enabled or disabled in an external application, but the Autoit window info tool is only getting the properties of the outside window(frame) and not recognizing the inside controls within the window. Without knowing the control Id for this button on which I wanted to perform operation, I cannot proceed with my script.

Can someone please help me by guiding what to do in situations where the Autoit window info tool is not giving sufficient information about the controls.

Autoit window info tool is showing the class for frame only when I am hovering cursor on the button inside the window of the application. Not getting the information about the button control i.e that is the info tool is only getting the properties of the outer frame instead of getting the properties of buttons inside the window. Please guide in accessing the properties of the button control.

The GUI is made in JAVA. The Autoit info window does'nt recognize the java controls. Do we have to install and include some java libraries for this to work?

On searching google.. I found that Java Ferret can be used for recognizing controls in java. Doers anybody has any information on how to proceed with this?
