How to know if a button is clicked

Recommended Posts

kcvinu

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.

Example in F1 work fine!

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 300, 200)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 210, 170, 85, 25)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case -3
                Exit
            Case $idClose
                MsgBox(0,"","YouPess Close")
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

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.

      Hi everyone,
      I have a problem with ControlClick function. It doesn't work no matter how I tried all the possible combination of the parameters.
      Below is the scripts of possible parameter combination:
      ;ControlClick("title","text","controlID ","button","clicks","x","y") ;title= Title, Class, Handle ;controlID= Class, ClassNN, Instance ;Title here is empty when I check it with AutoIt Info ControlClick("", "", "[ScreenKeyboard::Button18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ControlClick("", "", "[CLASS:ScreenKeyboard::Button; INSTANCE:18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ControlClick("", "", "[INSTANCE:18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ;Title here is the Class of the window ControlClick("[ScreenKeyboard::SKFrame]", "", "[ScreenKeyboard::Button18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ControlClick("[ScreenKeyboard::SKFrame]", "", "[CLASS:ScreenKeyboard::Button; INSTANCE:18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ControlClick("[ScreenKeyboard::SKFrame]", "", "[INSTANCE:18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ;Title here is the Handle of the window ControlClick("[0x000907A0]", "", "[ScreenKeyboard::Button18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ControlClick("[0x000907A0]", "", "[CLASS:ScreenKeyboard::Button; INSTANCE:18]", "left", "1", "230","890") ControlClick("[0x000907A0]", "", "[INSTANCE:18]", "left", "1", "230","890") Am I coding it correctly?

      Hello, and apologies if this have been discussed before, but I googled and couldnt find anything relevant.
      I have a problem where I try to send a control clink into to a window. 
      Part of window I try to send clicks to looks like this . The black border is showing when I mouse over it Au3Info, I get following information:

      I am testing its interaction with code

      The result I get is that it makes control clicks trough first line, opens and closes menus, as expected.
      When It gets to second line, it does not click a single icon. I can tell that coords are correct as the dropdown menus (No view active) gets focused(altough not rolled out). Same behaviour happens if roughly 40<y<60, so I know I am hitting good height. You can look at how it behaves here: output.webm 
      Dropdown 1 focuses at around 8 sec mark, and 13 sec mark it changes to second dropdown, defocusing first one, seemingly not registering any clinks inbetween.
       
      Have you ever encountered similar behaviour? I need to click the Key button, first on second line, with controlclick (or any other way not hijacking the mouse). I cant trigger that button by keyboard and There is no other control having control over it.
      Help

      I need to automate a specific GUI from a legacy system written in C.
      The spy tool gives me this

      I use this code
      Local $swintit = WinGetTitle("[active]") ConsoleWrite("active Window " & $swintit & @CRLF) If $swintit = "FILES NOTES" Then ; If $swintit = "FILES NOTES" Then ; got Window, now atomate ConsoleWrite("got Window " & @CRLF) ; now focus, then click :) ;EditPaste ;ControlCommand("FILES NOTES", "", 404, $acno) ; paste acno GUICtrlSetState(404, $GUI_Focus) ControlCommand("FILES NOTES", "", 404, $acno) ; paste acno GUICtrlSetState(401, $GUI_Focus) ControlClick("FILES NOTES", "", 401, $acno) ; click okay EndIf ; If $swintit = "FILES NOTES" Then The idea is to paste the acno value into the edit box, then click an Okay button.
      I get a console write that the active Window is as expected, but my loop completes without ever writing anything into the GUI.
      I also tried the control ID as text "404" - same result
      What am I missing?

      I'm trying to use mouseclick in a panel above.  I want to click on a list item, such as 'Estimated'.  (I've given up on trying to use control click for this).  I'm using window info coordinates from 'Control' tab.

      ; click 'Columns' WinActivate("Innovaya Studio with Sage (Archtectural 2017_V1.invx") MouseClick("primary", 292, 88, 1, 1) WinActivate("Select Browsing Properties") Sleep(1000) MouseClick("primary", 27, 70, 0,0) Sleep(2000) Send("{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}{TAB}") Sleep(1000) Send("{ENTER}") ControlClick( But when I used the code Autoit doesn't click where the coordinates are.  In the scipts it is the second MouseClick that won't work.  Any ideas?
