ControlSend("[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]", "", 199624464, "Test")

Hi Chiitus,

It will be difficult to help without knowing some background info on the webpage, Are you able to provide a screenshot of the AU3info.exe output, when you select the control you're trying to access? (I assume this is what you were using?)

Also the additional code around this line would be useful, as it may not be an issue with this command, but the code leading up to the controlSend function.

It may be worth adding the following to your script for testing:

local $Test = ControlSend("[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]", "", 199624464, "Test")
ConsoleWrite($Test & @CR)

What does that return? If it returns 0 to the output window in ScITE, then the control cannot be found.



give a man an application, and he'll be frustrated for the day, Teach him how to program applications and he'll be frustrated for a lifetime.

ControlSend("[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]", "", "[CLASS:Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND; INSTANCE:1]", "Test")
