ControlSend not working in Swing GUI when windows is not active

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm new to AutoIt and I've read all documentation to it and got a problem I didn't find solution in this forum. I am trying to write on the first input field of a Swing GUI when the window is not active.

To debug my handle I am using PsaltyDS's snippet:

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

Here you can see my code:

WinWait("Display BDoc Messages","")
 Sleep(200)
 ; RAW Send

$hWin = WinGetHandle("[Title:Display BDoc Messages]", "")
If IsHWnd($hWin) Then
    ConsoleWrite("Debug: $hWin = " & $hWin & @LF)
    $hCtrl = ControlGetHandle($hWin, "", 100)
    If IsHWnd($hCtrl) Then
        ConsoleWrite("Debug: $hCtrl = " & $hCtrl & @LF)
        ControlFocus($hWin, "", $hCtrl)
        ControlSend($hWin, "", $hCtrl, "hello")
        ConsoleWrite("Debug: Attempted ControlSend()" & @LF)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite("Debug: Error, failed to get control handle." & @LF)
    EndIf
Else
    ConsoleWrite("Debug: Error, failed to get window handle." & @LF)
EndIf

In my debug everything is right, but it is not sending anything to the text box:

Debug: $hWin = 0x00010472
Debug: $hCtrl = 0x00010488
Debug: Attempted ControlSend()

 

And here is the screen with AutoIt Window Info:

I also tried adding a ControlClick before it in the field, but with no sucess. It works perfectly when the window is active.

Thanks for any help.

Try ControlSetText if you want to set a text in a window.
I don't know that window but if it is running in admin mode then your script must run in the same mode to be able to handle that window

 I tried ControlSetText, same result =(. See code:

WinWait("Display BDoc Messages","")
Sleep(200)   

$hWin = WinGetHandle("[Title:Display BDoc Messages]", "")
If IsHWnd($hWin) Then
    $hCtrl = ControlGetHandle($hWin, "", 100)
    If IsHWnd($hCtrl) Then
        ConsoleWrite("Debug: $hCtrl = " & $hCtrl & @LF)
        ControlFocus($hWin, "", $hCtrl)
        ControlSetText($hWin, "", $hCtrl, "hello")
        ; ControlSend($hWin, "", $hCtrl, "hello")
        ConsoleWrite("Debug: Attempted ControlSetText()" & @LF)
    EndIf
EndIf

And also, I am running both in non admin mode. But I also tried both in admin, and still doesn't write "hello" in my box.
