How to get data and control a Datagridview?

Recommended Posts

Good morning, i'm trying to automate an external c# .net 4 windows form app, the problem is that it uses few DataGridView and i must get the inside data, to double click on a exact row etc... 

but seems not possible using autoit and maybe isn't possible also in other ways....


From autoit v3 window info:

Windows Forms can be automated with the UI Automation framework.

Download the two UDFs in bottom of first post, and download and run the code in the "Simple spy demo" codebox in the middle of first post. The "Simple spy demo" will provide the same information as Inspect.exe, when Inspect.exe is running in UI Automation mode (and from the output in the text box, I can see, that it is).

To verify that a control can be identified place the mouse cursor over the control and press Ctrl+w. You can see an example here.

Note that the framework is based on COM interface objects (created with ObjCreateInterface), so it's not just as easy to use as most built-in commands.
