Click on first listview item does not work

Recommended Posts


I am creating a other post since the problem has evolve and is not the same anymore. Everything is working like I want except it click the top left coner of the listview instead of the first item. I realy don't know what I miss. I need a left double-click but used right-click to see where it click. So only need to click on the item instead of the listview header. See screenshot attached for the printer window and Autoit window info. Here is my code :

Func InstallPrinters($PrinterName)
   ShellExecute("C:Program Files (x86)BAAD Printer LookupPrinters.qds")
   WinWaitActive("Find Printers")
   $PrinterWindowHandle = WinGetHandle("Find Printers") ;Get handle on Find printer window
   ControlSetText($PrinterWindowHandle,"","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]",$PrinterName) ; Put printer number into search field
   WinWait("Find Printers","",2)
   ;$ListViewHandle = ControlGetHandle($PrinterWindowHandle,"",544) ;Get handle on the listview
   $ListViewHandle = ControlGetHandle($PrinterWindowHandle,"","[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:7]") ;Get handle on the listview
   if @error Then
         ; add error handling here

   MsgBox(0,"",$PrinterWindowHandle) ;for debug, getting printer window handle works
   MsgBox(0,"",$ListViewHandle) ;for debug, getting listview handle works
   MsgBox(0,"",_GUICtrlListView_GetItemText($ListViewHandle,1)) ;for debug, return empty/null string at the moment
   _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($ListViewHandle, 1, "right", True, 1) ;Click on first item in listview, does not work

Ty guys!

Listview items start numbering at 0, not 1.

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.
