Search tree and select items

Recommended Posts


Hi @all,

Do you know how to scan a tree and select an item. For example is the autoit help file. I expand all the tree and what it has to do next is scan the items with a "history" in its name. If true, it has to select it and sleep for 5 seconds and continue select the next item it finds until end loop. thanks

#include <GuiTreeView.au3>

$file = FileGetShortName("C:\Users\Smgl\Desktop\AutoIt3.chm")

Run(@ComSpec & " /c start " & $file)

WinWaitActive("AutoIt Help")
Opt("GUIDataSeparatorChar", "\")

_GUICtrlTreeView_Expand(ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:HH Parent;TITLE:AutoIt Help]","", "[CLASS:SysTreeView32; INSTANCE:1]"),0, True)

Global $hWnd = ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:HH Parent;TITLE:AutoIt Help]", "", "[CLASS:SysTreeView32; INSTANCE:1]")
$hItemFound = _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem($hWnd, "History",True)

_GUICtrlTreeView_SelectItem($hWnd, $hItemFound)
