Window with Visible Controls - ControlGetText returns null

Recommended Posts

automaterk

Hello again all!

Everyone has been a great help with my work so far, but I have come across something that hopefully has a simple solution.

I have a window that the Info tool can grab all control info from and easily identify the text of said controls. The window in question is below.

appscreen.thumb.PNG.291382f7642b4e572046

The text I am trying to grab are the acct, history and chart numbers. The output of the info tool is as follow:

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:   Admission/Registration Confirmation Screen
Class:  LSPANEL
Position:   587, 307
Size:   764, 461
Style:  0x94C40000
ExStyle:    0x00000100
Handle: 0x00000000000E1134

>>>> Control <<<<
Class:  LSSTATIC
Instance:   29
ClassnameNN:    LSSTATIC29
Name:   
Advanced (Class):   [CLASS:LSSTATIC; INSTANCE:29]
ID: 5
Text:   2000684
Position:   224, 39
Size:   60, 14
ControlClick Coords:    30, 7
Style:  0x5400008C
ExStyle:    0x00000004
Handle: 0x00000000000E1140

I have tried several variations of of things to get AutoIT to interact with the window. This was my latest

ControlFocus("Admission/Registration Confirmation Screen", "", "#327701")
;ControlClick("Admission/Registration Confirmation Screen", "", "LSBMPBUT4")
;Local $sText = ControlGetText("Admission/Registration Confirmation Screen","",     "[CLASS:LSSTATIC; INSTANCE:29]")
;Local $sText1 = WinGetTitle("Admission/Registration Confirmation Screen", "")
;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The text in LSSTATIC29 is: " & $sText)
;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The text in LSSTATIC29 is: " & $sText1)

I've also tried just having LSSTATIC29, etc.

After messing with everything for awhile, it seems AutoIt simply has issues working with this window at all as I can't get it to ControlClick the button either. All other windows of this nature have been completely usable. I noticed that with this particular window ,while I can identify the controls, when I click and hold - it allows me to drag a box across the window. Not sure if this matters or not, but thought it might be important for identifying the type of window.

I can't think of anything else I might be leaving out, but if there are any questions please let me know and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I will be working on the rest of this project on and off for the weekend. Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to give!

did you try $sText = WinGetText("Admission/Registration Confirmation Screen") ?

I have. I will try it again to be sure, but it still returned null. It just seems to have a problem with this window in particular. Is there any other way to get AutoIt to recognize it. It is driving me crazy since every other window has worked just fine. I don't know what could be different from the others.

What is the title of your window? There seems to be some characters before the "/"-character. Have you tried to identify the window with the last part of the title ("Registration Confirmation Screen")? Or directly with the window handle?

does the class and instance change if you hold it over different texts?
it could also be HTML inside a window, i have seen some software with that in the past, so what out for that too

https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/WinActivate.htm

build it in steps

First make sure you have the window itself

; Wait 10 seconds for the window to appear.
    Local $hWnd = WinWait("[REGEXPTITLE:.*Registration Confirmation Screen.*]", "", 10)

    ; Activate the window using the handle returned by WinWait.
    WinActivate($hWnd)
    WinMove($hWnd, "", 10, 10)

and then just iterate over all children

As AU3Inf is seeing them properly it should be possible with the standard functions.

If not you could give a try to IUIAutomation in Examples section

Thank you all for the responses. I have been out and unable to continue work the last few days, but will give all of this a try and let you know what seems to be working.

@jvds Each label has its own instance and class name, but they are static in the sense that they are the same every time if that's what you are asking.

To sum up -

1) This particular window's issue was solved by identifying it as "[REGEXPTITLE:.*Registration Confirmation Screen."

This allowed me to easily identify any of the buttons/labels I was having trouble with.

2) Additionally - I was having some other issues with identifying buttons in another window(I think it may have been hidden by a label in the application), but the child list/iteration helped me figure that out.

Thanks to everyone again, I'm super grateful for all the help you all have already provided!

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi, This is my first post on the AutoIt Forums, I most of the time was able to get help from this community by merely searching though google and have been able to solve hundreds of problems this way, though in this case I was incapable of finding a solution to my problem. I am quite confident that it is a user error (And my fault) but I haven't been able to determine what I did wrong, any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I have uploaded my whole script pardon passwords to provide as much information as possible.
      I declared a global array at the top of the script and am having issues when I try to set it's value, and I fail to understand why.
      Error Message:

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.
