Tree View Node Selection

Recommended Posts


I have an application with tree view. Description is following of treeview










so on 


when i click on root the tree expands and shows only chield1, chield2(not showing 3rd level) and when i click on chield1 it shows plus mark(+) before chield1 and also shows  chield1.1, chield1.2.For this i have written following code

$idTreeView = ControlGetHandle("retrival window","","[CLASSNN:WindowsForms10.SysTreeView32.app.0.141b42a_r16_ad11]")

$hItemFound = _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItemEx($idTreeView, "root|chield1")
_GUICtrlTreeView_ClickItem($idTreeView, $hItemFound, "left", False)
$hItemm = _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItemEx($idTreeView, "root|chield1|chield1.2")     ; Till here there no problem
_GUICtrlTreeView_ClickItem($idTreeView, $hItemm, "left", False,1) 


Now problem is in last line it not selecting the node (chield1.1). It opens enternet explorer i do not know why"?

I have checked ($hItemm) the handle is of right node(root|chield1|chield1.2)


Please help

There's not a whole lot to go by in your description, so I'm going to make some assumptions.  Does clicking the item manually trigger IE? I see nothing in your post that would indicate any tie in to IE which is why I ask.  

Instead of using the _ClickItem function which triggers a "click" notification/message on the TreeView control, try using _GUICtrlTreeView_SelectItemByIndex() instead.

      I have a script that just adds some keyboard shortcuts for things like displaying the current song and artist, moving the window to the side so it won't pop up in my way, and play/pause, next song, previous song (these are the only 3 to still work since they don't need the window handle.)
      In some update recently, Spotify's window class swapped from "[CLASS:SpotifyMainWindow]" to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0]". Using the new class in my controls doesn't seem to work, I've tried getting the window handle from the process handle (_GetHwndFromPID($PID)) but that seems to fail as well.
      Does anybody have some idea of a way I could get this script working again?
      edit: seems like discord has the same window class name, so could be some issue with this? Still not sure of a way to solve the issue though, I added a function to get the handle of the active window and can just use that now, but it was able to find it on its own before on spotify startup or script startup which would be preferred.
