[SOLVED] Problem with ControlClick

Recommended Posts

Radioham

I can't get ControlClick to work. I test with the following code:

  $Text = ControlGetText ("PowerSDR", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.34f5582_r11_ad1; INSTANCE:41]")
  MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $Text, 2)
  $Success = ControlClick ("PowerSDR", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.34f5582_r11_ad1; INSTANCE:41]")
  MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $Success, 2)

ControlGetText  does give the correct result, eg the text on the button.

ControlClick does return '1' (Success) but the button is not clicked as expected. Adding additional parameters (button and clicks) does not change anything.

I am running under Windows 8.1 Pro

Any suggestions please?

Throw in a WinActivate prior to the click.

A #RequireAdmin might help also, if the app is running as admin.

      #Include <WinAPI.au3> local $ClassName = _WinAPI_GetClassName(WinGetHandle(WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"))) ControlClick(WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"), "", "[CLASS:"&$ClassName&"; INSTANCE:1]", "primary") When I am running this script it just gives me a ConsoleWrite output of "0x001D04A8"
      When using "AutoIT v3 Window Info" all the info I need for the ControlClick is there and displayed perfectly as if I typed it in normally.
      Upon click the button it should be clicking it, I see the following inn the console window:
      If I replace the $ClassName with the actual ClassName of "WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.3296db7_r14_ad1" it works just fine, any ideas???

      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?
      Thanks

      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?
