Regarding object properties in AutoIt v3 Window Info


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am new to AutoIt. Need help in following Issue

Issue : I am trying to automate .Net application where for some buttons & Menu bars, Objects properties ( Like Control Properties)  are same for the whole Menu bar but Menubar is having multiple buttons. As of now in my script i am clicking buttons by Mouse Co ordinations ( Which is not right approach).

What is the other way to progress?

Please help in this issue.

Have you checked out whether the individual buttons have a separate 'instance' number?

The Help file explains it probably better than I can, about the different elements, like 'instance'.

Check the Controls section of the Using AutoIt section of the Help file.

As far as I know (I've been dealing with a VB.NET application for a few weeks now) .. it works only partially. AutoIt only supports 'native' Windows controls. However, there is IUIAutomation... '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>


It's complex but it works. Perhaps go over this thread if you want to read about my trials & tribulations with a .NET application and some useful tips I got:


'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>


Also, if all else fails, there is useful discussion here:


Also, make sure you run the AutoIt Window Info Tool as Administrator, or you will miss important information.
