Identifying Button in Toolbar When There is no ControID

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I want to click on a button that is inside a custom ToolBar on a nonAutoIT created form.  I've been using MouseClick but that fails if the toolbar is detached or if the form is resized.

There is no ID associated with the toolbar but there is a handle.  I'm thinking that to get the handle I need a ControlID but that only gets me to the toolbar and I'd then need to have a way to identify the position of a button in order to click on it.  

I'd found a discussion about identifying the position of a noname button by, I believe, it's Tip text back in December but I can't find it now.  Memory is a bit fuzzy on how I even got to the topic because at the time I was searching for something else.   I'll continue to search but if anyone has seen the topic, or knows of another solution could you please point me in that direction. 

Thank you.

If you can get the handle you can still click on the specific button you want

"SendCommandID", Command ID Simulates the WM_COMMAND message. Usually used for ToolbarWindow32 controls - use the ToolBar tab of Au3Info to get the Command ID.

InunoTaishou - Thank you for the reply. 

The buttons are part of the toolbar and inherit the handle from the toolbar.   The toolbar I'm looking at has 15 buttons.  Using AU3Info and moving across each of the 15, they each show the same handle as the Toolbar.  None of the buttons, nor the Toolbar, show a Control ID in Au3Info.

So, I can a toolbars handle but I cannot identify a specific button to click inside the toolbar because they all show the same information, with one exception, and that's the Visible Text. 

In this application, nothing shows (as in it's totally blank) in AU3Info under the Toolbar or the Statusbar tabs when selecting any toolbar or statusbar.

Thanks again.

      Hello.
      I've got a problem. I want to center my input vertically, but I don't have any single idea how to do it.
      There's my example code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> $GUI = GUICreate("Gui", 237, 93, 192, 124) $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Center vertically isn't correct", 16, 16, 201, 62) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd What could I do?
      Greetings, "genotypek".

      Hi,
      working on my first autoit GUI an got some questions.
      Is it possible to get an action on the first menu level
      For example:
      $StartMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Datei") ... while 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $StartMenu MsgBox(0, "Test", "yes this works") (currently this does not work for me)
      Currently I have to create GUICtrlCreateMenuItem 's this will leed to a result
       
      And a 2nd question. I saw many time this:
      $StartMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Datei") For what does I need the ampersand? If I leave out the & nothing seems to change
       
      Thank you very much in advance

      Hey Guys,
      I am Struggling with a issue that i cannot seem to fix.
      I hope that you guys can help me with this.
      I have a GUI with some text attributes, for all i use the following code;
      $Label_ts_Header = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Manual Adress", 60, 10, 500, 50) GUICtrlSetBkColor($Label_ts_Header, $COLOR_WHITE) GUICtrlSetFont ($Label_ts_Header, 26, 800, 0, "Calibri") This is all working like it should, but when i activate the GUI on another pc the text size is bigger and the GUI size is somewhat smaller.
      The problem is that it isn't on all computers, i can't seem to find the problem,..
      If i make it fit on one pc it is to small on another or to big,..
      What am i doing wrong?
       
      Is there some kind of attribute that i need to add to the top of my script to normalize text sizes in the script?
       
      Thanks!
       
      EDIT: Found the problem guys, some computers has changed the text size to 125% // Can i force 100% for my GUI somehow ?
       
      EDIT2: Fixed it guys! // I used the Function Below to get the DPI Setting and used that to determine the text size (example below)
       
      Func _GDIPlus_GraphicsGetDPIRatio($iDPIDef = 96) _GDIPlus_Startup() Local $hGfx = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND(0) If @error Then Return SetError(1, @extended, 0) Local $aResult #forcedef $__g_hGDIPDll, $ghGDIPDll $aResult = DllCall($__g_hGDIPDll, "int", "GdipGetDpiX", "handle", $hGfx, "float*", 0) If @error Then Return SetError(2, @extended, 0) Local $iDPI = $aResult[2] Local $aresults[2] = [$iDPIDef / $iDPI, $iDPI / $iDPIDef] _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGfx) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Return $aresults EndFunc ;==>_GDIPlus_GraphicsGetDPIRatio  
      $Label_S2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Data from The Base", 10, 300, 400, 20) GUICtrlSetBkColor($Label_S2, $COLOR_WHITE) GUICtrlSetFont ($Label_S2, 13 * _GDIPlus_GraphicsGetDPIRatio()[0])

      Hey everyone, I'm curious if there is a way to incorporate a checkbox with a combo GUICtrl?
      so for instance I have a GUI that has a bunch of checkboxes that allow me to open certain programs as needed.  (this is just some parsing of my code, sorry, noob here and not sure what the preferred method of displaying code is, please enlighten me)

          $L0742 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 4.2", 110, 320, 100)
          $L07502 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 5.0.2", 110, 350, 100)
          $GenComm = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("GenComm", 110, 380, 100)
          $Templates = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Templates", 110, 410, 100)
          $MCT = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("MCT", 110, 440, 100)
          $Desktop_Shortcuts = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Desktop Shortcuts by Tester", 110, 470, 200)
       
      ...
      Case $msg = $RunBtn
                  RunPrograms()
       
      ...
      Func RunPrograms()

          if GUICtrlRead($L0742) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel4.2\viva\viva.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($L07502) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel5\viva\viva.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($GenComm) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPShared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester\Matt\CPI Generator\CPI Generator Windows 7 64 Bit\GenComm\GenComm.NET.exe", "")
          if GUICtrlRead($Templates) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Test_Templates")
          if GUICtrlRead($MCT) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Manufacturing Software\MCT\MCT.exe","")
          if GUICtrlRead($Desktop_Shortcuts) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\fpshared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester")
      EndFunc
       
      so i click some checkboxes, and hit a run button and the programs which are checked run, great.
      BUT i want to add a bunch of options under one checkbox. A combo that will list a bunch of versions of a program that can be opened. something like this... but I want that program to be part of a checkbox
      $ViVAComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("L01 Rel 13", 110, 320, 100)
      GUICtrlSetData($ViVAComboBox, "L04|L05|L07 Rel 4.2|L07 Rel 5.0.2|L09", "L07 Rel 4.2")
       
      is this possible? is there another GUICtrl that does this better that i am not aware of?
