Edit1 is not the file menu, it's the edit box of Notepad


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.

I'd try specifying a button parameter.

 

Button, if no parameter is given, defaults to the left mouse button.  Which is *usually* the primary one.  Personally, I use the primary and secondary keywords to avoid having to check if the buttons have been swapped

 

 

tried this way:

WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad")

$handle = WinGetHandle("Untitled - Notepad", "")

ControlClick($handle,"","","",1,23,40)

not working neither:/

 

Double negative ... grammar mistakes aside, your X/Y coordinates are for the control ... that you didn't specify ... so no wonder it's not working.  Even if you did specify "Edit1" as the control, your coordinates are for the entire window ... so once again, the mouse would click in the text entry area, and not on the menu like you wanted.

Why not ControlSend() and Alt+F to the Edit1?

I use notepad for testing, actually I want to do this ControlClick method with a program called PokerCoach, to fasten up a few things like a hotkey for new game. But first i want to figure out how to do it with notepad. so the built-in hotkeys are not an option :/

Demete,

You might well missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation. So although we will be happy to help you automate Notepad, please do not start asking specifically about games. :)

In fact I would strongly advise not even mentioning the G-word again - all it does it get you on my radar, which is not something you really want. ;)

Use this for menus:

WinMenuSelectItem

Yes, it works woth WinMenuSelectItem, but my goal is to do the same with ControlClick, but thank you for your answer.

Melba23, understood and I am sorry :)

Then you need to get the Rect(angle?) of the menu you want to click

_GUICtrlMenu_GetItemRect
_GUICtrlMenu_GetItemRectEx

Those are your click coords.  Use the X + (width2) as your x, and Y+ (height2) for your y coord

Play around with it.  Include control "".  Do a mousemove before hand, with a slow movement option, so you can see what you are doing wrong.

Else, change the mouseclick autoitsetoption to be absolute, and add in the window position.
