Trouble with Selecting a button on Program

Recommended Posts

dar100111

Hello everyone!

I am new to autoit and had a unique problem that I was hoping someone could help with.

I am trying to select something that's in a drop down menu on a toolbar.

I have found I can find the window name and control ID in the help tool with the sci-editor.

When I view the source I see what button I want to select but I'm having a hard time selecting

this button in the source code.

<button id="button_desktop_internal_aa879690956e11e2bcffe6b69e160b18" action="launch_desktop_internal_aa879690956e11e2bcffe6b69e160b18"/>

I've tried control click. Is there a way to do the action attached without actually selecting it?

I've tried ControlClick(mywindow, "", "[CLASS:TRzToolbar; INSTANCE:1]"). From what I've seen all the buttons to click on the toolbar have the same ID.

Thanks in advance! Below is the summary from the info Tool.

You need to send the commandid of the specific button on the toolbar via:

ControlCommand

"SendCommandID", Command ID

Simulates the WM_COMMAND message. Usually used for ToolbarWindow32 controls - use the ToolBar tab of Au3Info to get the Command ID.

you might get lucky and have the conmmand id's displayed on the au3info tool..toolbar tab...else you need a dev resource to provide them for you, or do a loop, and try to get it yourself.

Not sure if it will function for that specific kind of toolbar.

Last chance, look into the _guictrltoolbar* functions...you might be able to grab the buttons...or relative position clicks...the _guictrltoolbar would be much cleaner.

So far I can only get MouseClick to work (which I'd like to avoid) Since this is a homegrown program I may have to look into more options. I'm not sure how the _GUITOOLBAR functions would play into it either but I'll have to keep trying. Does anyone see a way to do this similiar to how the _IE functions would work for this source code? I underlined and bold the example. Thanks again for the help
