Problem with ControlClick

Recommended Posts


Hello im trying to send a left click to a minimized window but i could not make it work, the keystroke i use in the same while works correctly.

My code looks like this

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
$hwnd = WinGetHandle("classname=*******")
If @Error Then
   MsgBox(0, "Sorry the handle could not be found.")
While 1 = 1
   ControlSend($hwnd, "", "", "{Q}")
   ControlClick($hwnd, "", "", "Left",1,131,132)

Sorry for my english and thanks for the help :D

You have a null/blank ("") in place of ControlID? Consult help file for correct parameters or try finding control id using AutoIt Window Info...

To minimize a window, the WinSetState function works for me.

An example:-

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

WinSetState ( WinGetTitle("[Class:SciTEWindow]"), "", @SW_MINIMIZE ) ; Where SciTEWindow is the class of the window to be minimized.
;                                                                      Class of the >>>> Window <<<< found by SciTE menu > Tools > AU3Info.
;                                                                      Note square brackets used.

Malkey +1

You do not need to send any click on minimalize, since if your window get resize, your coordiantes does not work anymore. Better to use what Malkey posted.

P.S.: check your mouse coordinates. Use it on window coordinate, or windows screen coordinates?

Sry for my bad English, and double sry, but I am learning AutoIT language by myself. :)
