Interact with Combo boxes & edit boxes

3 posts in this topic

Hi All

I am looking to control the pull down menu (class: Combo box) and text input box (Class: edit)

I've tested and understood winwaitactive and sendkey but I dont know how to specify

e.g. 

context combo box, sendkey x      context  edit box sendkey    y

Ive looked online but i see scripts I dont understand as they dont have explanations

Anyone in the know?

Thanks for reading

Which program do you try to automate?

Send is not always reliable because the user can take away focus and then you send to the wrong window.

I suggest to use Control* functions.

Im trying to automate some windows explorer tasks so I would have to have a command to interact with the pull down menu.

[edit]

I figured this out. Was really simple, Holding down the alt key shows hidden menu's, didnt know this.

Holding alt spawns pulls down a new menu.  we then can send the appropriate key.  Below  is the solution to do this. It will interact with the map network drive pull down and text boxes

send ("{LWINDOWN}")

Send("{e down}")

Send("{e up}")

send ("{LWINup}")

WinWaitActive("Computer")

sleep(500)

send("!t")

send("n")

send("{ENTER}")

sleep(500)

Send("servershare")

sleep(500)

send("!d")

send("b")

sleep(500)

send("!f")
