ControlGetPos returns Position not ControlClick Coords

5 posts in this topic

Hi all

I am trying to automate a click that was done manually.

To summarize - User chooses Document to upload -> Uploads it -> Goes back into the same Document and verifies it -> Submits batch

Therefore when automating, I am allowing using manual testing for the upload but after user chooses the Doc item the rest is automated.

My code looks like this:

local $hWnd = WinWait ("Test Bank 1 Link (V2.2.39.0)", "", 2)
local $aPos = ControlGetPos($hWnd, "", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]")
..

..

ControlClick ($hWnd, 2, $aPos[0], $aPos[1])

 

When I remove the replace ControlClick ($hWnd, 2, $aPos[0], $aPos[1]) with  MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Position: " & $aPos[0] & ", " & $aPos[1])

Then it retrieves the Position (10, 178)

I believe that you are using the wrong syntax with ControlClick. Have you tried the following:

ControlClick ($hWnd, "", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]")

Dan

I used ControlClick ($hWnd, "", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]") but then it clicks in the center of that window instead of double clicking the exact document item I clicked before.

Try something like this:

ControlClick ($hWnd,"", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]", "left", 2, $aPos[0], $aPos[1])

Or this.

ControlClick ($hWnd,"", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]", "left", 2, 438, 149)

Or maybe even something like this:

ControlClick ($hWnd,"", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]", "left", 2, $aPos[0] + 20, $aPos[1] + 20)

##This Double clicks center
ControlClick ($hWnd,"", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]", "left", 2, $aPos[0], $aPos[1])

Or this.

##This defeats the purpose since we don't know what the user will choose. The cords will always be different.
ControlClick ($hWnd,"", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]", "left", 2, 438, 149)

Or maybe even something like this:

##This Double clicks center
ControlClick ($hWnd,"", "[NAME:gridvwDocuments]", "left", 2, $aPos[0] + 20, $aPos[1] + 20)
