Detect Button Text

Recommended Posts


I'm building a script to interface with an internally build application made with .Net.  My end goal is to have a script that will take the user's Username/Password as command line arguments and insert them into the applications login form.  

The issue I'm running into is around detecting text in a button control.  On the login page,there is a button to switch between Smart Card and UN/PW login.

>>>> Control <<<<
Class: WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.2bb23b_r22_ad1
Instance: 3
ClassnameNN: WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.2bb23b_r22_ad13
Name: btnLoginMode
Advanced (Class): [NAME:btnLoginMode]
ID: 852626
Text: Standard Login
Position: 156, 113
Size: 102, 26
ControlClick Coords: 55, 14
Style: 0x5601000B
ExStyle: 0x00000000
Handle: 0x000D0292
Can anyone please help guide me how to add logic to determine if this button says "Standard Login" vs "Smart Card"?  I need the script to wait until the "LoginMode" button says Standard Login or cancel if the user clicks the OK (NAME:btnOk) or Cancel (NAME:btnCancel) buttons.
Thank you.

I'm trying to use the ControlGetText() function, however get @error=1 and ""

Local $btnLoginMode = ControlGetText("Workstation Login","","[NAME:btnLoginMode]]")
    MsgBox(0, "Value of $btnLoginMode is:", $btnLoginMode)
    $btnLoginMode = ControlGetText("Workstation Login","","[NAME:btnLoginMode]]")
Until $btnLoginMode = "Smart Card"

which Smart Card software you use ?


no longer valid misunderstood your post
I understand that signing the application is a separate application, not related to the manufacturer of the smart card reader.

I ended up using a wait loop to work around this.  Thanks for the help

While ControlCommand("Workstation Login", "", NAME: txtPassword, "IsVisible", "") = 0
    If Not WinExists("Workstation Login") = 1 Then Exit
