controlclick

6 posts in this topic

I tried multiple ways, but it doesn't click the button:

Here's what I tried:

   ControlClick("[Title:Alarm]","[CLASS:Button]", "[INSTANCE:2]")

 

   ControlClick("[Title:Alarm]","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]")

 

   ControlClick("[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]", "")

 

   ControlClick("[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]", "Primary")

 

Here's the detail from WindowsInfo

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:    Alarm
Class:    #32770
Position:    -273, 143
Size:    874, 344
Style:    0x94CC0044
ExStyle:    0x00010104
Handle:    0x00140A70

>>>> Control <<<<
Class:    Button
Instance:    2
ClassnameNN:    Button2
Name:    
Advanced (Class):    [CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]
ID:    1008
Text:    Stop and Exit
Position:    635, 270
Size:    137, 25
ControlClick Coords:    92, 11
Style:    0x50010000
ExStyle:    0x00020004
Handle:    0x00140B8C

>>>> Mouse <<<<
Position:    462, 454
Cursor ID:    0
Color:    0xCEF0F0

 

The winactivate works and I know that part already; just the controlclick. Sometimes the alarm windows popup elsewhere if I use coordinates so it won't work.

any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

asianqueen,

Open the Help file page for ControlClick and compare those snippets to the required syntax. You will see that none of them match - so it js hardly surprising that none of them work. :(

You need 3 obligatory parameters: title, text, ControlID - you have a title, the Advanced CLASS information you have will act as a ControlID, and you can leave the text parameter as an empty string (""). So why not put those parameters into the correct places in the function call and see if it works then. ;)

Your button information is in the "text" parameter in your first 2 tries, put "", before the button information and use the second example you posted. The help file is the best place to find out how to use a function, optional parameters aren't optional if you use one of the other optional parameters that come after it Left to Right.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

will give it a try. I don't like the help file as it's using a notepad as an example which doesn't help at all.

EDIT:

Works great. Just missed the position :D

Both of you guys give good details to get it right. Don't know to select which one as the person who resolved my issue. Just mark as resolved.

Well, if you used the help file to find out how this stuff actually works, you'd stop making posts like this all of the time.

...I'm just sayin'

asianqueen,

A classic case of cutting off your nose to spite your face! :(

You are mistaken in what you need to look at - the examples are just that: examples. Look at the full syntax explanation in the top part of the page - that is the important stuff. ;)
