List Content of "Qt5QWindowIcon" Class

Recommended Posts


Hello everybody,

i've spent hours to google and find out how to get content of scrollable list view of our CMS Software...

i checked it with the "AutotIT window info" tool, but the only things I get are this:

Class: Qt5QWindowIcon
Instance: 18


but how can I get list contents of a class like that?


I was using AutoIT couple a months ago (but it was a ListView32 box) <-- was easy ;)


Thanks for any hints...




P.S: I also checked the AutoIT Editors help pages (Keywords: "Qt5QWindowIcon" "Qt5Q", nut cant find nothing... Thanks!

I also need some help with this window class. The new Mighty Text desktop app is Qt5QWindowIcon and I can only get SimpleSpy to setfocus to the main window. My experience with SimpleSpy and UIA is very minimal, this is what SimpleSpy gives me.

Mouse position is retrieved 148-185
At least we have an element [MightyText][Qt5QWindowIcon]

Having the following values for all properties: 
Title is: <MightyText>  Class   := <Qt5QWindowIcon> controltype:= <UIA_WindowControlTypeId> ,<50032>    , (0000C370)    57;-8;1317;784
*** Parent Information top down ***
0: Title is: <Desktop>  Class   := <#32769> controltype:= <UIA_PaneControlTypeId>   ,<50033>    , (0000C371)    0;0;1366;768

;~ *** Standard code ***
#include "UIAWrappers.au3"
AutoItSetOption("MustDeclareVars", 1)


*** Detailed properties of the highlighted element ***
UIA_title:= <MightyText>
UIA_text:= <MightyText>
UIA_regexptitle:= <MightyText>
UIA_class:= <Qt5QWindowIcon>
UIA_regexpclass:= <Qt5QWindowIcon>

UIA_handle:= <2495118>

UIA_IsVirtualizedItemPatternAvailable:= <False>
UIA_IsSynchronizedInputPatternAvailable:= <False>


if @error Then
	MsgBox(262192,"",@ComputerName&" slaps "&@UserName&" around a bit with a large trout!")

@NBG15: post simplespy output of your controls to give in indication if it can or cannot work

In general IUIAutomation supports accessibility of QT Widgets

However if the developers of your app are not nice to people with disabilities they forget to use the relevant QT Widget properties for accessbility. 

Check with a trial of Ranorex tooling but I think mightydesktop for sure is not behaving nice (I checked with NVDA and Simplespy and RanorexSpy and inpspect)


So all you can do is complain or sue the developers of mightydesktop not building accessible apps


edit: Its not about the QT class but about the QT Class properties developers are forgettng to give a value

edit2: Testcomplete seems to support more with injecting dlls into the qt application under test

Func Example()

    $result = _SendMessage($hWnd, $WM_GETOBJECT, 0, 0)

EndFunc   ;==>Example

After trying above and setting the environment variable no result (ranorex, simplespy, inspect, au3inf) but looking thru QT source it should be able to work.

I am on windows 10 so maybe different results on other windows system

Interesting direction to investigate

Use the QT_USE_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1 in your environment

It worked. But That Application is too lag. When i do something. i have to minimize it. And open it again

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

      Good morning everyone

      I was playing a little bit with "Screen Capture" UDF, and I was trying to make a "Window" capture, but, since I made a GUI which through I fire the event "Capture", my GUI is captured as well, and I don't want to
      This is the line of code that makes the capture:
      _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd($strScreenCaptureFileName, $objActiveWindow, 0, 0, -1, -1, False) And these are the lines of code which select the "active" window:
      Local $objCurrentWindow = 9999 If _IsPressed("01") Then $objCurrentWindow = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]") If $objCurrentWindow <> $objMyGUI Then $objActiveWindow = $objCurrentWindow EndIf EndIf Sorry If I made stupid mistakes
      Thanks in advance.

      Here is a function that will return a 2D array of visible windows.  You will notice that windows "Start" and "Program Manager"  windows will always be in the array.  The array returns the title of the window, the window handle, the PID of the process associated with the window, the process name associated with the window, the window's position, and the window's dimension,  Please see comments in the code about the numbers returned about the window's position.
