WinMenuSelectItem Question

Recommended Posts


There is a clicked item in the tree, using `ClickItem`, then it should `WinMenuSelectItem`. But the subMenu to be opened has no hotkey so I have to manually `Send("{DOWN}")` until it reaches the subMenu item. The problem is that it sends `Send("{DOWN}")` to the item of the tree and not to the subMenu items.


$sMenu = WinMenuSelectItem("Title","","&Menu")
            If $sMenu = 1 Then

Hey Bazinguuh,

The only difference between this post and the one you posted 23 minutes before it, (Here), is that you said "Hi" in the other one... Try not to double post like this please. 

How about trying the AutoIt Window Info Tool provided with installation, to see if there is a method other than simulating key strokes. This way, we can access the GUI your wishing to interact with a bit more seamlessly, and much more reliably.

Mouse over the GUI, particularly the object that is giving you difficulty, and press the following key combination: CTRL + ALT + F

This will freeze the screen, allowing you to copy and paste the data here so we can help. Unfortunately, with the information you've provided there's not a lot more help I can provide without hopelessly shooting in the dark. (Is it a GUI? Webpage? Did you make it yourself? Where is it? Can we see a screenshot, or maybe even a link?)

Help us help you :).
