Window Info not returning any detail

Recommended Posts


I am fairly green with autoit. I am trying to automate an app that we use for help desk tickets (Wendia). 
The app does a web start which I can get to launch.

I cannot however seem to get Window Info to give me any useful information about the controls in the app. The only thing that changes for me is the Mouse coordinates. 

I am working with the code below which seems to find the window, but I get nothing (well one listing with "0 [0]" in the array display.

Any ideas? Really not sure the development technology, it is a web start app that has WinFX in the executable name.

; Create a browser window and navigate to a website

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Global $avChildren

Local $oIE = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($oIE, "url")

WinWaitActive("[CLASS:HwndWrapper]", "", 10)
$hWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:HwndWrapper]")
WinListChildren($hWnd, $avChildren)


Func WinListChildren($hWnd, ByRef $avArr)
    If UBound($avArr, 0) <> 2 Then
        Local $avTmp[10][2] = [[0]]
        $avArr = $avTmp
    Local $hChild = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWnd, $GW_CHILD)
    While $hChild
        If $avArr[0][0]+1 > UBound($avArr, 1)-1 Then ReDim $avArr[$avArr[0][0]+10][2]
        $avArr[$avArr[0][0]+1][0] = $hChild
        $avArr[$avArr[0][0]+1][1] = _WinAPI_GetWindowText($hChild)
        $avArr[0][0] += 1
        WinListChildren($hChild, $avArr)
        $hChild = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hChild, $GW_HWNDNEXT)
    ReDim $avArr[$avArr[0][0]+1][2]
;MouseClick("left", 56, 162)
;MouseClick("left", 70, 190)

I came across this tool WinID that lists more information (including handles)  but if I can't enumerate what is there, how can I get the handle on each new launch?

Pretty sure it is a .net app.  
has a lot of the new whiz-bang ui features (ribbons, etc)
It launches from a browser but it is not itself a browser, at least the window is of class HwndWrapper

I came across this:

trying to decide if I should plow down that road.
