issue with selecting menu item and edit box content.

Recommended Posts

I am trying to automate basic functionality on freeOCR.
I am  using below code to select a menu item:
WinMenuSelectItem ( "FreeOCR", "", "File", "Open")
It is not working.
Simillarly I am using below code to get text from an edit box.
$value = ControlGetText ( "FreeOCR", "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]")
Could any one please assist.

Try this:

Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("FreeOCR")

ConsoleWrite(ControlGetText($hWnd, "", "[NAME:TextBox1]") & @CrLf)

;Note: The window's menu is customized and can not be manipulated otherwise than Mouse* functions.

Local $aWndPos = WinGetPos($hWnd)

MouseClick("left", $aWndPos[0] + 30, $aWndPos[1] + 40, 1, 0)
MouseClick("left", $aWndPos[0] + 30, $aWndPos[1] + 60, 1, 0)

Local $sFilePath = "image.bmp"

ControlSetText("Select Image to OCR", "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]", $sFilePath, 1)
ControlClick("Select Image to OCR", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")
Edit: Welcome to the autoit forum :)
