How to know if a button is clicked

11 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have searched this forum for a solution. But i couldn't find one. I have a third party application and it has a button. I need to start my script when that button is clicked. I have tried with "GUIGetMsg" function but didn't work. I have all the information about that program like window title and button handle etc. Please help.

Well, you are trying to run a script the second you push a button in a 3rd party software.

Which is proving to be a challenge.

My suggestion is to start your 3rd party program with your script.

Which can in turn push this button and any other functions you care to add.

Example:

I have a cubase (music mixing software) template that I start anytime I want to practice.

It needs 20-40 seconds to load and there are several pop ups that have to be clicked for it to continue loading.

I made a script that starts cubase with the practice template and continues running, watching for the pop ups and clicks on them as they appear.

Just a suggestion on a different way to proceed, may or may not be viable for your situation.

good luck !

Bill

Hi 

l3ill, That's a good idea. I can wrap the 3rd party app inside my script. Thank you for this suggestion. But What about  my question ?. Is that an impossible task ?

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

      I am clicking on a button on to submit o form UI.
      Problem is, the code working on windows 10,7, server 2012 r2 but not on windows server 2008.
      I checked the IDs also on that OS, they didn't change.
      Even the ControlClick is returning the status as success only but button is not getting clicked.
      But controlsettext on other fields are working.
      ;$MartConfigWindow is window object ControlClick($MartConfigWindow, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a; INSTANCE:2]")

      I used the window info tool to get what I've got below, but it just doesn't click the button. I run the script, nothing happens. 
      WinActivate("SELECTION") Sleep(200) ControlClick("SELECTION", "", "[CLASS:Button;INSTANCE:2]") i think maybe the autoit cannot detect the windows. So what i do:
       
      MouseClick( "", 503, 500) local $blanktitle = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]") If StringInStr($blanktitle, "SELECTION") Then msgbox("","", "got") WinActivate($blanktitle) ControlClick($blanktitle, "", "[CLASS:Button;INSTANCE:2]") Endif The script can detect the windows as the it is prompt "got" message. But it just doesn't click the button.
      Please help.
      Thanks for any help you can offer.

      Hello, I have a Logitech MX500 mouse, this has 7 buttons plus a wheel.
      I am trying to figure out how to detect clicks on three of the buttons on this mouse but have been unable to do so. I am not running any Logitech software just the standard Windows 7 driver. The buttons are all working fine but when I try to figure out which button was clicked unable to detect three of the buttons.

      Using this code snippet I am able to see all the button presses with the exception of these three marked by '?'.
      Is there some alternate method for detecting button clicks? I have been searching for example but have yet to find anything.
      Thanks...

      Hello,
      I am currently trying to automatically click the "Yes" button in the ActiveX prompt/popup message after opening the IE (html).
      At 1st, I encounter the "Allow Blocked Content". I already resolve it just by changing settings in the IE Options. But after resolving the "Allow Blocked Content", there's a popup message appear.
      I have attached the ActiveX Prompt.
      Here is the 1st code that I try to use.
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> _IECreate("C:\Users\april\Documents\Logo\JRB\AutoIt\AutoBOT\AWD10\sampleAWD10.html",0,1,0) Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) AdlibRegister("_ActiveXRun",250) Local $oLastName = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "Text4") Local $oGetItem = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "getitem") _IEAction($oGetItem, "click") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Element Value", _IEFormElementGetValue($oGetItem)) Func _ActiveXRun() $retWin = WinGetHandle("[Class:Button]","") $winTitle = "[HANDLE:" & $retWin &"]" $ctrlHandle = ControlGetHandle($winTitle,"", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]") $ctrlTitle = "HANDLE:" & $ctrlHandle &"]" WinWaitActive($ctrlTitle,"[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]",10) $k = ControlGetPos($winTitle, "","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]") $x = $k[0] $y = $k[1] WinActivate ($winTitle,"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page.
