[Solved] WinMenuSelectItem doesn't work with my Dutch Notepad

Recommended Posts


I have a Dutch version of Windows 10.
The Dutch word for "File" = "Bestand" and for "Page Setup" = "Pagina-instelling".
WinMenuSelectItem doesn't select this items.  What can be the reason?


WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Bestand", "Pagina-instelling...")

@dreivilo47 look again at the example script in the help file. Notice the & symbol in front of the menu item...

@JLogan3o13, thank you for your reply.
You're right, I forgot the & symbol twice.  Sorry for that.
I've corrected it and it works!

WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "&Bestand", "Pagina-ins&telling...")

      How do I work with 2D arrays.  I've tried this but get errors.
      Local $aTest[4][4] = [[1,2,3,4],[5,6,7,8],[9,10,11,12],[13,14,15,16]]
      ;$aTest[0][] = [10,11,12]  ; Error at []
      Local $sTest = ""
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aTest)-1
        Local $aExtract = _ArrayExtract($aTest,$i,$i)
        $sTest = $sTest & MyTest($aExtract)
      Func MyTest($aTemp)
        ; Error at    v $aTemp
        Return String($aTemp[0]) & " - " & String($aTemp[1]) & " - " & String($aTemp[2]) & @CRLF

      I'm trying to fill a ListView with all normal viewable windows to act with them.
      First I tried with WinList:
      Local $aWinList = WinList("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.+)]") Local $aTmp, $iID ;~ _ArrayDisplay($aWinList) For $i = $aWinList[0][0] To 1 Step -1 ; going backwards not disturbing the index while cycling through and deleting some If StringStripWS( $aWinList[$i][0], 3) == "" Or _ Not BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), $WIN_STATE_VISIBLE) Or _ BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), $WIN_STATE_MINIMIZED ) Then _ArrayDelete($aWinList, $i) Else ; Window has a Title and is "visible" $aTmp = WinGetPos($aWinList[$i][1]) If $aTmp[0] < -1000 Or $aTmp[1] < -1000 Then ; Window is minimized or tray icon _ArrayDelete($aWinList, $i) EndIf EndIf Next $aWinList[0][0] = UBound($aWinList)-1 ; getting actual # of windows ; Each row is now [ID]=> [Title], [hWnd] But it keeps getting Windows which are definitely not there at least not visible:

      Those windows "Rechner", "Einstellungen", "Netflix", "Microsoft Store", ... are not there!?! 
      It should list only the first three windows, which are real.
      I even tried it with _WinAPI_ UDF:
      $hWnd = _WinAPI_GetForegroundWindow() ; Add items _GUICtrlListView_BeginUpdate($idListview) If $hWnd <> 0 Then $iI = 0 Do If _WinAPI_IsWindow($hWnd) And _WinAPI_IsWindowVisible Then _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($idListview, WinGetTitle($hWnd)) _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($idListview, $iI, $hWnd, 1) $iI += 1 $hWnd = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWnd, $GW_HWNDNEXT) EndIf Until $hWnd = 0 EndIf But it is the same...
      How can i distinguish those invisible windows from normal ones?
      PS: I'm using Windows 10, maybe it is important to know?

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,
      Davida Crozier
      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.

      Using sample code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Find a pure red pixel in the range 0,0-20,300
      Local $aCoord = PixelSearch(0, 0, 20, 300, 0xFF0000)
      If Not @error Then
          MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "X and Y are: " & $aCoord[0] & "," & $aCoord[1])
          MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Pure Not Found")
      EndIf ; Find a pure red pixel or a red pixel within 10 shades variations of pure red
      $aCoord = PixelSearch(0, 0, 20, 300, 0xFF0000, 10)
      If Not @error Then
          MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "X and Y are: " & $aCoord[0] & "," & $aCoord[1])
          MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Variant Not Found")
      EndIf   and the attached screenshot which has Pure Red (FF0000) in one icon in the area being searched. Would someone please check this out for me?
