ControlClick won't work

3 posts in this topic

Okay, I need to know why my script is not working.  The first part functions correctly.  It opens the Run dialog and enters a command to open the Network Printer Installation Wizard.

However, once the Network Printer Installation Wizard is open, the ControlClick commands do nothing.  I've also tried ControlCommand and ControlSend.  When I look at the console output, I'm getting the correct window handle for the controls and the ControlClick commands are returning 1 which means they successfully executed according to the docs.

I am stumped.  Any ideas?

Send("#r")
Local $runDiag = WinWait("Run")
ControlSend($runDiag, "", "[CLASSNN:Edit1]", "printui.exe /ip")
ControlClick($runDiag, "", "[CLASSNN:Button2]", "left")
Sleep(1000)
Local $hPrntWnd = WinWait("Network Printer Installation Wizard")
ConsoleWrite("Window: " & $hPrntWnd & @CRLF)
Sleep(1000)
$ret = ControlClick($hPrntWnd, "", "[ID:5014]", "left")
ConsoleWrite("CC1: " & $ret & @CRLF)
$ret = ControlClick($hPrntWnd, "", "[ID:12324]", "left")
ConsoleWrite("CC2: " & $ret & @CRLF)
Exit

You should look in your other post on this subject, there was a suggestion on using another method to do this without trying to automate the window.


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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I'm looking into that solution as well, but having trouble wrapping my head around it. I'm new at the automation game. I posted this out of sheer curiosity. I cannot understand why my code above doesn't work and was hoping someone would explain it.
