Find Position of Tabstop indicator in an SAP window without scripting

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm using SAP and trying to get the positions of tabs in a tab control. I can use tab keys to navigate between the tabs. However i need to get the position of the tabstop indicator on the screen as i press the tabs. I mean the position of the small red corners that are formed around the word "Text" which is the 7th tab in the attached picture.

WingetcaretPos does not work as there is no caret.. any other way?

P.S: This has to be done without GUI scripting being enabled

No.. It is not a regular tab control. Given below is the Au3Info details of the tab control

It is not detecting the tab control as a separate control. The entire window is just one big control.

What are you trying to get from the Text tab? Perhaps you can use the SAP UDF to get the value you want instead.

 

I've never seen SAP before so I don't know too much about this. Sorry.

Just found this too when I was about to close my google search

Thank you InunoTaishou.. But these UDFs need scripting to be enabled for them to work, which i do not have... I've included a PS and Changed the title for better understanding
