Identifying Control ID

12 posts in this topic

I am having trouble identifying a Control ID of a button on a WIndow screen using the Window Info program. Is there another way to identify a Control ID of a button on a screen other than the Window Info program?

Yes, you mentioned 'about a problem', but you doesn't explain in detail what happens?

What it's your problem "Identifying Control ID" (specifically) ? :whistle:

In the Screen 2 I uploaded, I can not identify the control buttons circled.

There is a note in the helpfile about the controls that you need to know:

Controls - Info

Note: AutoIt only works with standard Microsoft controls - some applications write their own custom controls which may look like a standard MS control but may resist automation. Experiment!

But...a question: When you use the AWInfo over these buttons, what can you see?

Alternatively, you can use clicks with specific coordinates (Mouse..() related functions).

I see the ControlID and name of the buttons on SCreen 1 whether SCreen1 or SCreen 2 are up.

You could use ControlMove() to temporarily move those buttons to another location like (0, 0). This should give you the opportunity to view the control information of the other buttons using AutoIt Window Info.
