simple basic script not working - Help!

Recommended Posts

I am very new to the AutoIt tool and below is the script i have:

WinActivate ("File Download")
ControlClick("[TITLE:File Download]", "", "[TEXT:&Save]")

Click on the save button in the Download dialog box. The Download dialog box is highlighted but it is not clicking on the save button.
Below is from the console:

>"C:AutoItv3SciTeAutoIt3WrapperAutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "C:ramDesktopautoIt_First.au3" /UserParams    
+>23:04:51 Starting AutoIt3Wrapper v.14.801.2025.0 SciTE v.   Keyboard:00000409  OS:WIN_XP/Service Pack 3  CPU:X64 OS:X86    Environment(Language:0409)

read the help file and try to use the auto it window info tool... o:) o:) o:)


Yes..reading the help file and using Finder tool also..

When i am adding Debug to Console on the WinActivate and ControlClick ..it is working 

But if i just run without the debug lines it is not clicking on the save button

My guess is timing based on your debug comment - sounds like the app may not be ready for your click.  Try WinWaitActive. 

Thanks for your comment. WinWaitActive did not work but i added a delay of 500ms and it is working fine now. Thanks so myuch

Try with the control ID or the Advanced Mode value (get it with AutoIt Window Info), instead of [TEXT:&Save]

Thanks for the reply. The problem was timing issue and now it is working fine. Thanks for letting me know about Advanced Mode..
