Trouble getting ControlID

4 posts in this topic

My company has just updated its database and I need to transfer client information into the new database (ChildPlus.net, a thin client app), and have been trying to automate data entry. And failing.

It seemed like AutoIt should work for what I need, but instances and handles for fields change between records, and it doesn’t seem to respond properly to the name of the control either. I have most of the data in csv or excel files, it’s just that controlsend/click do not attach to the fields. I don’t see a way besides instance and class(nn) as names aren’t working.

I cannot just save mouse positions as the text reflow works against it, and there are not enough key commands to be able to script it easily.

The field has two distinct areas, the outer one has a .net name, and the inner just has class and instance(the instance changes if other menu commands are selected, and the class is the same for every field in the application). I can use ControlGetText("ChildPlus.net","","[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.3c47a4f_r17_ad1; INSTANCE:24]") for the inner field, but just the first time as the instance changes once I've clicked something else. ControlGetText("ChildPlus.net","","[NAME:txtAlternateID]") produces nothing.

Outer field:

Here for instance is a sample client id field I am trying to get text from. The outer control is named and that would be best IF i could use it, but it's only the inner control that holds text. And the instance and control ID change for that inner box.
Is there a way to get CLASSNN for the control contained inside [NAME:txtAlternateID] ?

KHCCData  you are on the wrong path.

This is a job for a database (or system) administrator. He can finish this kind of job in a matter of minutes.
