ClassnameNN vs. Control ID

3 posts in this topic

I am new to AutoIt & am using the tool to create a data entry script a client/server application built in Windows. In order to use ControlSend, I need the Control ID to access the field in question. For example:

ControlSend("Clinical User", "", 6, "{ENTER}")

There are a number of text fields & select list I need to work through in the application. If I simply Tab through the fields, I can output the ClassNameNN instead of the Control ID.

Local $i = 0

Do

sleep(300)

$id = ControlGetFocus("[CLASS:ThunderRT6FormDC]", "")

ConsoleWrite($id & @CRLF)

send("{TAB}")

$i = $i + 1

sleep(300)

Until $i = 26

The script I created runs fine using the ClassnameNN as opposed to the Control ID.

The question that I am trying to resolve - Is this approach valid?

To get the Id, ClassnameNN etc. of a control you can use the Windows Info Tool that comes with AutoIt.

kscott,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

The script I created runs fine using the ClassnameNN as opposed to the Control ID.

The question that I am trying to resolve - Is this approach valid?

Certainly - as explained here. Any one or combination of those properties is valid. :)
