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

Recommended Posts

dreivilo47

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?

 

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]")
WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Bestand", "Pagina-instelling...")
Sleep(4000)
WinClose("[CLASS:Notepad]")

@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!

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]")
WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "&Bestand", "Pagina-ins&telling...")
Sleep(4000)
WinClose("[CLASS:Notepad]")

      Hello,
      I have to execute below block of code in elevated previllage, as that particular wmic class will work only with admin previlage.
      i am getting out put when i launch autoit as administrator,  but i will not be able to launch autoit as admin in this particular case but my user have admin rights.
      is there any better way i can run those command as administrator.?
      tried below steps:
      i have tried #RequireAdmin but that creates a user prompt  Tried using Runas command but gives error as wrong username or password , stuck with that step.

      traytip isn't working in windows 10. nothing happens when i use the Traytip command.
      here's a simple script i used:
      TrayTip("I'm a title", "I'm the message", 5) i tried changing the registry setting HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced ( which didn't have EnableBalloonTips) and creating a DWORD entry called EnableBalloonTips and setting it to 1 and logging off then back in. that did not resolve the problem.
      i'm running Windows 10 v1709 b16299.431

      Run("notepad.exe") GLOBAL $One = ('Line1' & _ 'Line2' & _ 'Line3' & _ 'Line4' & _ 'Line5') ClipPut($One) $Notepad = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10) ControlSend("Untitled - Notepad", "", "", ("^v")) Instead of having this paste as Line1Line2Line3Line4Line5
      How can I make it paste it into notepad as (without double spacing.)
      Line1
      Line2
      Line3
      Line4
      Line5
