Flyout Menu hides from Window info tool

3 posts in this topic

I have a third-party application that has several buttons, each button in turn creates a flyout menu with more buttons on it.  As soon as the application loses focus, the flyout menu collapses and I'm unable to use the window info tool to get the control ID of the button I need.  Any tips on how I can get this to work?

Hit CTRL-ALT-F when the info tool window is open then click into your program, this "unfreezes" the info tool so that you can deal with issues like this.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Thanks, That almost got me there.  Now the problem is that window info tool isn't seeing anything on the flyout menu at all.  See the attached image and how all the controls are empty.  I do have a few values on the window.
