Sending a click to a control that does not show in Window Info tool

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to automate a task and that involves clicking in a button in the software dnSpy when I hover over the button with the Spy tool there is no control information (I'm trying to send a ControlClick), I suppose I could use the mouse to click it but that's risky as it could lead to errors, the application is .NET (I think), so is there a way to use ControlClick to send commands to the buttons in the application?

 

Thanks.

@mLipok Any ideas for the same but with respect to Java controls?

No idea if it will work but I use Ranorex spy to get information on things that don't come up with the Autoit Info tool.  Doesn't always work but I have had some success.

@pranaynanda you have a thread going already for that question, and have been pointed to exactly the same thread that the OP is being pointed to. Please do not hijack other people's threads just because you're not getting the answer you want.

See faq 31 in wiki faq. Simplespy and jabsimplespy and ranorex spy and au3inf give the basic answer on what can be done with free software. Deviare is more complex and tools like rational or hp uft or testcomplete see sometimes more in specialized areas.
