ControlClick Child Window

Recommended Posts

I've been searching around for this answer and can't seem to find it anywhere.

My problem is I want to run an external program like Notepad or something and then using ControlClick() click the file button within Notepad, is there any way to do this?

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$gui = GUICreate("title",500,300,-1,-1)
;---Found this searching around.
$hPid=Run(@SystemDir & 'notepad.exe',"", @SW_HIDE)
WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 5)
$hChild = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Notepad]", "")
$NEXSTYLE = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetWindowLong", "hwnd", $hChild, "int", 236)
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetWindowLong", "hwnd", $hChild, "int", 236, "int", BitOR($NEXSTYLE[0], $WS_EX_MDICHILD))
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetParent", "hwnd", $hChild, "hwnd", $Gui)
WinMove($hChild, "", 0, 0,320,240)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Gui)

Do you mean the 'file' menu?  You have to get your controls correct if you want relevant help:
