Control a commercial GUI without recording?

5 posts in this topic

Is it possible to get the handles of text boxes in commercial GUIs and use those in the automation script? How?

Recording mouse clicks isn't working well because the location of the text boxes is dynamic.

Thanks!

Use the AutoIt Window Info tool to get information about those controls.

I tried the windows finder and I think this isn't working.

I can get the info of my application (home window) but not the info of text boxes inside it.

Is there a way to change a textbox inside an application?

With Test-complete I am able to get the handle, but my trial expired...
