AutoIt v3 Windows Info tool does not get control text

Recommended Posts

cabrunco

Hi all, I made a simple GUI with an input field (code goes below). I compiled it and ran the executable. Then I tested the AutoIt v3 Windows Info utility to get the text. It does not work. I type in the input field different texts, and nothing works for the utility. However, if I write a script and use the function ControlGetText, I get any text I type in there. And also if I use ControlSend I can type to the field. Any reason for that? Thank you very much,

Matheus

Code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("JUJU", 110, 100, 450, 168)
$Inputo1_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("",5,50,100,20)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOWNORMAL)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

cabrunco,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

[Mod Hat On]
But please do not double-post in future - stick to just the one thread. Merged.
[Mod Hat Off]

I get the visible text in the input when I tested. Are you looking under the "Visible Text" tab? What version of AutoIt do you run?

Very sorry for sending twice. I tried to erase the first one from the other thread and couldn't find how. I will try not to make such mistakes again.

The version I am using is 3.3.12.0. Well, it worked, thank you, when I look at the "Visible text" tab. Then I wonder what that "Text"under the "Control" tab is...

Still, if I have several input fields, I get all the visible texts regardless of which control I choose.

It is not a big deal, but a bit confusing. Thank you again!

cabrunco,

In the current version of the recently updated forum software, members cannot delete posts/threads - we hope the facility will return in later versions.

Glad you got the problem resolved.
