      Global $l = GUICtrlCreateInput("3", 16, 48, 25, 22, $ES_NUMBER) Global $p = GUICtrlCreateInput("3", 56, 48, 25, 22, $ES_NUMBER) $go = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 136, 48, 83, 25) Global $m = GUICtrlCreateInput("1", 96, 48, 25, 22, $ES_NUMBER) Case $go $l = Number(GUICtrlRead($l)) $p = Number(GUICtrlRead($p)) $m = Number(GUICtrlRead($m)) Then I say consolewrite:
      ConsoleWrite(" l: " & $l & " p: " & $p & " m: " & $m & @LF); And first time when I hit Start ($go) button it gives me default numbers and works fine
      l: 3 p: 3 m: 1 But then I hit Start again and no need to change the numbers in input it gives me:
      l: 68 p: 68 m: 0 Then I hit again Start and this is result:
      l: 0 p: 0 m: 0 from this moment it is all the time 0 (zero) so what could be this?

      First of all I would like say infinite thanks to the team involved in designing this great tool.
      Here is my problem
      1. Press windows button
      2. ESC
      3. TAB
      4. It will take me to the first pinned icon in the taskbar
      5. If I I do SHIFT F10 which usually opens context menu like  right click of the mouse.
      6. For one of the application I am using it does not support  Shift + F10 context menu rather it listens to only mouse right click event.
      7. I do a search in a tree view of my application and the search item is selected or focused
      8. For eg


      Now if I search for User1 the tab or focus move to User 1 (Red)

      If I search for User3 the tab or focus moves to User 3
      Now my question is how can I move the mouse automatically go to the focused item on the window. Such that during automation I can issue MoveClick("{RIGHT}") as {SHIFT F10} is not working from the keyboard. It is a java app, unfortunately it is not honoring the right click events from keyboard to open the context


      the above scripts take the tab to the first pinned icon in the taskbar. Now i want
      MouseMove( "move to tab" selection")

      Hi Guys,
      i am working on a translation app. There are a couple of regular input fields with text that the user is supposed to change to a new language. 
      I want to change the color of the input field  as soon as the user leaves the input field. Is there a way to do that? 
      I know how to do this with a button, but i don't know how i can work with focus. Has any of you done something like this before?

      i did some researchs how to set the font and the only way is to overwrite the subclass with WM_DRAWITEM. With WM_SETFONT i can only change the font for all tab pages, but i want to change the font for a specific page.
      So i have to set the $TCS_OWNERDRAWFIXED style to the tab control to send the WM_DRAWITEM message to the parent window. When i set this style, i can change the fonts, but sadly the tab looses the nice and simple "AutoIt style". I created two child guis, the first is the owner draw tab and the second the "Normal" tab.
      My questions is, how to create this special "AutoIt style"???
