Is there any way to verify a checkbox is already checked or not using any method.

15 posts in this topic

I have a tool & in that i have a checkbox. I am clicking on that checkbox by using "ControlClick" method.

ControlClick("Internet Properties", "Start with ta&bs from the last session", "[CLASS:Button;INSTANCE:4]", "");

However i want to verify before clicking on that checkbox is already checked or not? Is there any way. 

Any example or help will be great.

@Bert I am creating a Autoit script which will read the inputs & based on that it will update the slider values.

EX: Say If the input is "High" it will set the slider to "High".

Code written for the same, however this is not a fullproof code, As if its already set to high, This code will not work. 

Needs some guidelines here:

If $sResult = "High" Then
    $CMD = "inetcpl.cpl"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD); 
    WinWaitActive("[CLASS:#32770]");  
    ControlClick("Internet Properties", "Use de&fault", "[CLASS:Button;INSTANCE:2]", ""); 
    Send("+{TAB}");
    Send("+{TAB}");
    Send("+ {RIGHT}");
    Sleep(1000)
    Send("{TAB}");
    Send("{TAB}");
    Send("+{UP}");

What do you mean by "will not work"? Expected versus experienced behaviour?

Expected: Lets say value is set to "low", expected is using the above script it should set it to high.

Experienced: When the value is set to "low", script is setting the value is medium.

I got a new solution for the above. Thanks for the help. :)

Well, that's easy... You only press "{up}" one time and you should press it twice as you want it to go up twice. Or just press "{HOME}" to up it to the maximum setting immediately.

Note: GUI automation is typically the last resort. The security settings can be set in other ways, perhaps you should try and directly set the required zone levels in the registry, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones.

RegRead, RegWrite...

Also, depending on what your network/deployment situation is, group policies may be the best way to go.

Refer to post #4, automating the GUI is the last thing you should be doing.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Using "Send" keys i am able to do. But that is not Foolproof.

As checkbox is already "Checked" how we will verify using "Send" key.

Send("{TAB}");
Send("+{DOWN}");
Send("+{SPACE}");

This code will do when checkbox is already checked then it will uncheck & if it is uncheck then it will check.

However i want to do first checkbox is already checked or not?

You need #RequireAdmin and ControlListView, but i also suggest regread/regwrite is the better way.

      Hello Everyone! 
      I'm attempting to create a checklist app that performs other functions. For performance, I would like to check the box, then have the button to the right enabled. After that button is pressed, the second checkbox is enabled, and ready to be checked, allowing the second button to be pressed. After the second button is pressed, the completion/exit button is enabled/shown. I have my code that currently creates the GUI, creates the checkbox, but when you check it it enables the button and the next checkbox. Can't seem to figure out a Case for GUISetOnEvent. Any assistance would be appreciated!
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Below is the GUI interface _DeploymentProcess() Func _DeploymentProcess() $aStep1 = GUICreate("Deployment Process", 475, 345, 500, 175) $CBcStep1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("1. Step 01.", 15, 25, 300, 25) $BTNS1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 01", 365, 25, 90, 20) $CBcStep2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("2. Step 02.", 15, 50, 300, 25) $BTNS2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 02", 365, 50, 90, 20) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) $CBcStep3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hurray! You're Complete!", 85, 276, 300, 60) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) ; Below are the button and checkbox enables/disables. GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete($aStep1) Return ; Step 1 Case $CBcStep1 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf ; Step 2 Case $CBcStep2 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf Case $CBcStep3 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS10, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) Else GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE) EndIf Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $CBcStep3 #comments-end Exit EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc

      Hi everyone,

      Is there a way to determine whether the script that is running, is already running, without using;
       
      If WinExists ?

      Or is there a way to use "If WinExists" to determine the script itself?

      The reason I am asking this is because if I want someone to run the .Exe I have and they rename it to whatever they want, how could I then determine in the script to check if there's already an .Exe open, or the script itself is already open?

      Should I use Class, or how do I achieve this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Id like to build a little helpertool for my boss in office but i dont know how to sart it.
      thats no complicated task. im working for an insurancecenter and have to search the customers in different orders and different tags.
      due to my boss is old and not really commen with pc he saves the customers without system.
      eg, customer andreas statham got an insurenca for his car then i got to search for
      andreas statham car, andreas car statham, car andreas statham, statham andreas car, statham car andreas, car statham andreass etc to find all the files from this customer in the harddrive.
      some customers also are fmiliarnamed in one file like andreas statam and monika rog are married an both got a carinsurance then i got to earch for
      andreas statham monika rog car, andreas statham monika car rog,.... this can take real long to find the right customer if i do it from hand.
      how can i realise this someone in here got an excamlple script or has any sugestion?

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.
