Cannot edit textbox using AutoIT

Recommended Posts

zerothesavior

I can't get this to work.

ControlSetText("[CLASS:#32770]", "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]", $sString)

Am I doing something wrong? The string is not blank, I checked it with a message box.

Here is the information from the window:

>>>> Control <<<<
Class:  Edit
Instance:   3
ClassnameNN:    Edit3
Name:   
Advanced (Class):   [CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]
ID: 1001
Text:   
Position:   47, 78
Size:   187, 14
ControlClick Coords:    112, 9
Style:  0x50000380
ExStyle:    0x00000000
Handle: 0x000000000021064A

      i have a code where the ControlSetText was working perfectly. now its not working. please see the video and snap attached. The snap show the way i have used window info. In the video,  when the dialogue box opens, it used to key in 'sea.runx' , but now its not working so... what could be the reason. the script used is as shown below - thanks
       
      WinActivate("SACS 5.3 V8i")
       winwaitactive("SACS 5.3 V8i")
      send("^r")
      winwaitactive("SACS Run Files")
      ControlSetText ("SACS Run Files","",1148,"sea.runx")
      SEND("{ENTER}")2018-03-22 at 00-02-47.mp4

      I need to set value to a text box to a desktop application.
       
      I am trying to do that with 
      ControlSetText($MartConfigWindow, "", "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.378734a6", $dbserver)  
      where $MartConfigWindow has the window ID.
      And the text box field is having class as WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.378734a6
       
      THis code is working on one machine but on some machines, the last part of ID WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.378734a6, means 378734a6
      is changing.
       
      Is there anyway to handle this?

      Is it possible to know if a textbox is active in FireFox?

      if (Textbox in FireFox == Active) { }

      All,
       
      I have windows 10 64 bit pro with the latest versions of scite and 3.3.14.2 installed. Not that it matters for this instance.
      My monitor resolution is 1920 x 1080 progressive with a refresh rate of 64 HZ ( more in a min on that )
      I have a Nvida gtx 960 card and an HP monitor
      Since moving to Windows 10 and this configuration ( latest drivers of course ) I am unable to see the " ControlSetText " being displayed under the standard 60HZ refresh rate in WIndows 10. On Windows 7 machines this is flawless and always had been. The ControlSetText is updated at an extremely fast rate. IF I change the resolution one notch lower in windows 10 the display displays the text like in Windows 7 60HZ refresh. IF I user the max resolution 1920 x 1080 @ 60 HZ nothing is displayed in Windows 10. IF I create a custom resolution profile and just change the refresh rate to 64HZ it displays normally in Windows 10.
      If I enable " GUIGetMsg() " it displays fine but processes very slow fyi
      I will place the relevant code below. I am wondering:
      1) what is the max refresh/update rate for ControlSetText ( fasted it can be updated )
      2) Could this be adjusted either in code without hampering processing speed
      3) Does this need to be addressed in AutoIT program itself as a bug ?

      It seems that ControlSetText() sends only the first character to Scintilla controls.
      To see this, try the following:
      Open a SciTE window
      Put the following line into the window
      ControlSetText("[CLASS:SciTEWindow]","","[CLASS:Scintilla;Instance:1]", 'here is some text') and save the file.
      Go to the beginning of the line.
      Hit F5 to run the line.
      What I see is that the single letter h overwrites the text in the window instead of the desired text.
      Does anyone know how to get the Scintilla control to play nice? If not, is this a bug I should be reporting to the Autoit folks?
      I would like to avoid ControlSend(), because it has trouble with Unicode.
      Thanks for any tips.
      --- original post ---
      In an AutoIt script, I use ControlSetText() to send text to the Command window in the Stata statistical package.
      In Stata 14, the Command window was changed to a Scintilla control which understands Unicode instead of a RichText control (which used Latin1 encoding). In the past, all worked well, now only the first character gets put in the control.
      Here is an example which illustrates how it worked and now fails (which requires a running Stata 13 and a running Stata 14):
      Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1) ## in Stata 13 and earlier, the Command window was a RichText control ControlSetText("Stata/MP 13","","[CLASS:RichEdit20A;Instance:1]", "sysuse auto") ## result: 'sysuse auto' in the Command window ## in Stata 14, the Command window is a Scintilla control ControlSetText("Stata/MP 14","","[CLASS:Scintilla;Instance:1]", "sysuse auto") ## result: the letter 's' in the Command window I can use ControlSend() to send plain text successfully, but I'm betting it won't work properly with Unicode because the function is not Unicode-ready, yet.
      Any hints about what I need to do to fix the problem?
      I realize this is somewhat specialized because of the receiving software, but perhaps someone knows something about sending text to Scintilla Unicode-friendly controls.
      Thanks for any help.
