I have a very strange problem concerning MouseClick function.
I need to start Control Panel, navigate it on the Display Section (Adjust screen resolution link), click on it, and from the next Dialog choose Intel Graphic tool tab and navigate into it when it opens.
I wasn't using MouseClick() at first when I tried to use Control IDs, but I was fed up with the Autoit Window Info poor and inaccurate info (It flickers and the moment I click on the control the control ID and class disappear) so I ended up choosing the easiest way.
The code I'm posting worked OK until two weeks ago, the mouse clicks were accurately performed and the Script reached the end with no errors...and I was happy.
All of a sudden, between one try and the other, I noticed the cursor not flying exactly where it was supposed to, namely to the Control Panel ->Display->Adjust screen resolution link but it clicked some 30 pixels below and some 30 pixels to the left, choosing obviously and undesired function and from that point it screwed the whole thing up. And from that moment onward, it seems I can no longer regain the mouse to click on that sequence.
Could it be because my Control Panel ->Display form moved slightly from one test to another and therefore I got that small offside?
If you believe this is the reason, I should then re position the Control Panel ->Display window to 0,0 and recalculate all the clicks.
do you have a suggestion?
Thanks a lot
I need to open an INTEL Graphic Tool clicking on a Win7 Tray Icon. This icon is not shown on the Win7 Tray but it is shown once you click on a button that shows a little arrow-up. This button opens up an extension of the tray and there is my INTEL Graphic Tool Icon.
The first ControlClick('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', 1502 ) at line 26 of my source code (Rotatedisplays.au3) works fine as it clicks on the up-arrow shown on the uparrowfirst Menu.jpg picture and opens up an extension of the tray. Then I'm trying to click on the INTEL Graphic Tool Icon which is the first blue icon (up-left) of the tray extension but I failed all my attempts. Can somebody help me out?
Is this possible with autoit?
What I want to do:
Create a Desctop windows shortcut to run an executable application created with autoit, which shortcut would have some parameters which will send as a variable to the aplicagion .
Create an app : ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe
Run this with a shortcut which has: "C:/ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe" -option1
What I want to do is the ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe take the option1 and do something like this: Shellexecute("c:\myfolder\option1.exe")
Can I do that?
hi guys, how are you ?? fine? good...
Here is a little question: is it possible to know whish shortcut has been used to launch my autoit app ?
i'm quite sure that there's nothing to do with autoit, but mostly windows ...
My context: i have an app accessed from the network by my user.
In my app i use FileCreateShortcut to point to \\myfileserver\myapp.exe
Soon, in october, they are going to change my fileserver, so my app will be on \myNEWfileserver\myapp.exe
So in my code, i just rewrite my shortcut on the desktop's user. Everything works fine.
BUT..some users have several shortcut for my app (they just manually create another shortcut which i don't know the name).
So maybe they don't use my shortcut but their own ...
=> i know I could list all file on desktop, and for all the .lnk i check if destination is myapp.exe and modify the path but do you see another way ?
have fun !
I am trying to launch the shortcut through autoit, but I am getting below error.
[Window Title] C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk" [Content] Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk"'.

and also Run and RUnwait
