ControlClick Dosn't Work :)

23 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello, I'm back, i want to improve my AutoIT Skill, so i decited to create simple APP.

I decided to work with my calc.exe , so.

There is small example what i wanted to take.

1. ControlSend 2

2. ControlSend +

3. ControlSend 2

4. ControlClick =

Bold Works, None Nope.

Why ControlClick? thats why i want use a Mouse Click to improve my Control Skill :D , just Control Send would be so easy to me, I'm always looking for hardest way so.

There's my script:

Opt('WinTitleMatchMode','2')
$Title = 'Kalkulator'
$process = WinGetHandle(WinGetTitle($Title))
ControlSend($process,'','',"{2}")
ControlSend($process,'','',"{+}")
ControlSend($process,'','',"{2}")
ControlClick($process,'','',"left",1,200,250)

Working fine 1,2,3 but it can't click the button = via mouse left click.

x= 200 and y = 250 are possitions i taken from _WinApp_ GetMouse Possitions so I'm sure it's corretly, you can also check in this picture, i also made small red point where should be mouse click.

It was placed on top left corner and was minimized.

Have you tried it with Control ID for the third ControlClick parameter?

Use the AutoIt Window Info tool included with AutoIt to get specific control information about Kalkulator.  You can get ControlID's for each individual button.

Normally you can't get away with leaving certain parameters, like Control ID, out of the command, but it appears you have been able to do this with ControlSend. If you use the correct ID, you won't need the Mouse positioning.

Like as has been suggested above, fire up the Window Info Tool and have a play with it, until you understand how it works. Pay particular attention to the Controls tab, the active window of Calculator, and the mouse hover position.

Unfortunately, I cannot check your code, as I don't have an installation of AutoIt on this machine, only the Help file.

Okay, i did it, works with calc  :)

But now i want to do it via X,Y of mouse for another one, for example i did program in c++ and now the Window Info Tool cant find my created button (like in calc INSTANCE / BUTTON etc.) :)

So thaths why i want to use x,y.

EDIT - Typed this while you guys were already talking.  Ah well.  ;)

 

If you just want to send stuff to calculator, use this (it's fine to send all keystrokes together):

Opt('WinTitleMatchMode','2')
$Title = 'Calculator'
$process = WinGetHandle(WinGetTitle($Title))
ControlSend($process,'','',"2{+}2{ENTER}")

If you want to target specific buttons, use this:

Opt('WinTitleMatchMode','2')
$Title = 'Calculator'
$process = WinGetHandle(WinGetTitle($Title))
ControlClick($process,'','[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:11]')
ControlClick($process,'','[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:23]')
ControlClick($process,'','[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:11]')
ControlClick($process,'','[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:28]')

I got the "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:11]" information by using AutoIt Window Info, like I suggested before.  Check your Start menu - you likely have it in your AutoIt folder.  When the program is running, go to the Control tab.  Then drag the Finder Tool over the control you want to know about - like the Equals button on the calculator.  The Advanced Mode part is what you need to identify the control.  You can also go to the Summary tab (scroll all the way right) and copy the information directly.  The Finder Tool will tell you about each control you want to use.

Note that you won't actually see the mouse move - the application is internally told that those controls were clicked.

Okay, try this (careful - these co-ords worked for me, but my calculator is likely in a different position than yours):

Opt('WinTitleMatchMode','2')
$Title = 'Calculator'
WinActivate($Title)
MouseClick("primary", 361, 499)
MouseClick("primary", 438, 526)
MouseClick("primary", 361, 499)
MouseClick("primary", 475, 512)

Use the Mouse tab in AutoIt Window Info to know what x/y co-ordinates to use.
 
You can use WinMove if you need to position the window.  You can also use Opt('MouseCoordMode','2') if you want to use co-ordinates relative to the client area of the window (so it doesn't matter where the window is, but the co-ords take a little more work to figure out).

Only using X and Y and click to = button.

Oh, right.  I forgot you wanted to keep it minimized.  Yeah, ControlClick is the way to go.  (And the AutoIt Window Info has that information too.)

Read my post:

 

But now i want to do it via X,Y of mouse for another one, for example i did program in c++ and now the Window Info Tool cant find my created button (like in calc INSTANCE / BUTTON etc., there aren't any controls just mouse possition and color :)

So thaths why i want to use x,y.

If it's a program you made, there's nothing stopping you from modifying it.  But I'll assume you don't want to do that.  You need to know that your x/y co-ords are correct.  Try something like this:

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Quit")
AutoItSetOption("MouseCoordMode", "2")

$x = 0
$y = 0

While 1
    If $x <> MouseGetPos(0) Or $y <> MouseGetPos(1) Then
        $x = MouseGetPos(0)
        $y = MouseGetPos(1)
        ToolTip($x & ", " & $y)
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Is ControlClick failing?  Get its return value.  Success = 1, Failure = 0.  It might be failing if there's no control for it to actually click.

Now you have me suspicious of you, if I wasn't a little before.

If you have Calculator minimized, then you really don't need it all, as you can do all the maths with AutoIt code.

If it's a program you wrote, why not add a control?  I'm suspicious as well.

That's what I was suspicious of.  I refer you to the forum rules, especially Rule #1.
