I wrote a script a few months ago that was working at the time. When I tried it today it wouldn't retrieve any controls. The application successfully launches, but I cannot figure out how to retrieve the control from the window that is launched. I'm on a windows 10 machine using AutoIt v184.108.40.206. The only thing I can think of that has changed is windows updates? Code is below, any help is greatly appreciated. ; Notes: ; HandleError( handleToCheck, MsgToLogOnFailure, terminateAutoItOnFail ) : function that simply checks the handle and quits AutoIt if not present ; all of this works well FileChangeDir( $CLIENT_APPLICATION_DIR ); Run( "Client.exe" ) Local $hClient = WinWaitActive( $CLIENT_TITLE, "", 10 ) $terminateOnFail = 1 HandleError( $hClient, "LaunchClient::Error: Failed to launch client. Either timed-out or failed.", $terminateOnFail ) LogToFile( "Client launched, waiting for system to ready." ) Sleep( 5000 ) ; this part does not work ; $SYSTEM_INDICATOR is a global variable. I have tried these values: "SystemIndicatorWindow" (Text), "Qt5QWindowIcon101" (ClassNN), and ; "[CLASS:Qt5QWindowIcon; INSTANCE:101]" Local $hStatusIndicator = ControlGetHandle( $hClient, "", $SYSTEM_INDICATOR ) HandleError( $hStatusIndicator, "CheckStatus::Error: couldn't retrieve control: " & $SYSTEM_INDICATOR, $terminateOnFail ) This is what the spy reveals:
Edit: I just tried this code and it works for notepad++.
FileChangeDir( "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\" ); Run( "notepad++.exe" ) Local $hNotePad = WinWaitActive( "new 1 - Notepad++", "", 10 ) If $hNotePad = 0 Or $hNotePad = -1 Then MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "Error getting app handle." ) EndIf Sleep( 1000 ) Local $hNewFileBtn = ControlGetHandle( $hNotePad, "", "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:1]" ) If $hNewFileBtn = 0 Or $hNewFileBtn = -1 Then MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "Error getting button handle." ) EndIf MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Success", "Success." )

Fixes WinGetClassList's barbaric returning of a @LF separated string instead of an array.
Automating applications that change their controls' handles/classes on each launch (e.g. half of Cisco's programs)

I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
In other words:
Any PC screen able to calculate the size
To consider the Task bar size
To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it
In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
Thanks a lot
I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear
I have a query please
It is about windows file explorer
If i design a tool in autoit language to delete files for example
and i added it in the context menu in File Explorer
If i right-click on any file And you choose the tool, it will be get the path of the selected file or folder
The problem here is
If i select a set of files or folders
it only detect the first one
The code that i used is
if $CMDLine = 0 then
msgBox(16, "error", "you don't selecte any files")
for $i = 1 to $CMDLine
msgBox(0, "files", $CMDLine[$i]
I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
This is my RunWait command:
RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
