ControlClick not working in Windows 8 app

Recommended Posts

brad3260

Hello, I'm new to AutoIt so forgive me if this is a simple problem. I work for a company that makes communication devices and our consumers love to use the Camera app in Window 8. The easiest way for them to use any program is with keyboard shortcuts but this app has very few so I decided to make my own using AutoIt since we have a tool that let's the individual to run programs with just a push of a button. I have the following script that I am running while the camera app is running which should take a picture but it doesn't

#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Example()
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0)
    WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
    WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
EndFunc

Func Example()
_WinWaitActivate("Camera","",5)
Local $hnd=WinGetHandle("Camera")
ControlClick($hnd,"","","left",1,561,262)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", "Select the OK button.")
 EndFunc   ;==>Example
 

I'm going off of the following

#region --- Au3Recorder generated code Start (v3.3.9.5 KeyboardLayout=00000409)  ---

#region --- Internal functions Au3Recorder Start ---
Func _Au3RecordSetup()
Opt('WinWaitDelay',100)
Opt('WinDetectHiddenText',1)
Opt('MouseCoordMode',0)
Local $aResult = DllCall('User32.dll', 'int', 'GetKeyboardLayoutNameW', 'wstr', '')
If $aResult[1] <> '00000409' Then
  MsgBox(64, 'Warning', 'Recording has been done under a different Keyboard layout' & @CRLF & '(00000409->' & $aResult[1] & ')')
EndIf

EndFunc

Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0)
    WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
    WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
EndFunc

_AU3RecordSetup()
#endregion --- Internal functions Au3Recorder End ---

_WinWaitActivate("Au3Record","Address: C:Program ")
Send("{RWINDOWN}{RWINUP}")
_WinWaitActivate("Program Manager","FolderView")
MouseClick("left",1161,262,1)
_WinWaitActivate("Camera","")
MouseClick("left",1161,262,1)
MouseUp("left")
Send("{LWINDOWN}r{LWINUP}")
_WinWaitActivate("Run","Type the name of a p")
Send("{ESC}")
#endregion --- Au3Recorder generated code End ---
 

Can anybody help me? I have been going at this for two days! I need to use the ControlClick method because our software covers some of the screen.

So I tried the following and nothing still. Any other suggestions?

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>

Example()
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0)
    WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
    WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
EndFunc

Func Example()
   _WinWaitActivate("Camera","",5)
   Local $hnd=WinGetHandle("Camera")
   ControlClick($hnd,"","[CLASS:DirectUIHWND; INSTANCE:1]","left",1,1067,326)
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", "Select the OK button.")
EndFunc   ;==>Example

from documentation:

 

x [optional] The x position to click within the control. Default is center.
y [optional] The y position to click within the control. Default is center.

 
is this control:

ControlClick($hnd,"","[CLASS:DirectUIHWND; INSTANCE:1]","left",1,1067,326)

so big ?

Use the 'spy demo' in this post, and see if you can grab the child controls in that control:

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

Try this, also...might get lucky:

#include <Array.au3>
$hControl = ControlGetHandle($hnd,"","[CLASS:DirectUIHWND; INSTANCE:1]")
$a = WinGetClassList($hControl)
_ArrayDisplay($a)

This is what spy demo gives. I see two classes but don't I need an instance?

Mouse position is retrieved 784-360
At least we have an element [Preview area][PreviewControl]
Having the following values for all properties:
Title is: <Preview area>    Class   := <PreviewControl>    controltype:= <UIA_ListItemControlTypeId>    ,<50007>    , (0000C357)

Title is: <>    Class   := <TouchScrollViewer>    controltype:= <UIA_ListControlTypeId>    ,<50008>    , (0000C358)
