If you use the AutoIt Window Info tool you will get the correct ControlID to use.

ComboBox1 is the ClassNameNN

I understand that Classname should work in a lot of cases but it did not in this case. I was just suggesting another option.

Everything looks right. I would go with BigDod's suggestion of trying to use the actual ControlID, instead of the ClassNameNN. I have never actually used this function, but I just looked it up in the helpfile and your example seems to be by the book.

Odd.. ControlID = NULL, but it still has a ClasNameNN?

Never seen that one. Nice unique case.

When your holding your mouse over the combo box, and the window is active... can you post a copy of AutoInfo (the entire thing) in here... I'm a bit more awake now B), and I'll try to help.

Sorry it took so long... I was caught up with my own script:

Here try this:

ControlCommand("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "ComboBox1","SelectString","FUJITSU fi-4120C2dj")

Just do it, no action :-( The combobox don't change value.

ControlCommand ("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "ComboBox1","SelectString","FUJITSU fi-4120C2dj")

ControlCommand ("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "Button1","Check", "")
ControlCommand ("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "Button3","Check", "")

The check of buttons go right.

I'm sorry, I neither create PDF's, nor do I understand what you mean by "check" of buttons go right.

Did the command I gave you work?

Try this for the "check" of buttons.

ControlClick("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "Button1", "LEFT", 1)
ControlClick("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "Button3", "LEFT", 1)

Edit:

I think I understand that your saying the "check" of buttons are doing the "right thing". In that case ignore the above. If no one else can come up with a solution for you, you may want to try MouseClick() and Send() options if you know it will always be 2 down.

Maybe something like this?:

Opt("MouseCoordMode", 0); check the helpfile to see what you would need to set the "0" to.

MouseClick("LEFT", X, Y, 1, 1)
Send("{Down 2}")
Send("{Enter}")
ControlCommand ("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "Button1","Check", "")
ControlCommand ("Crea PDF da scanner", "", "Button3","Check", "")

Just an alternative... hope you get the answer you need B)!!
