How do I click this button?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Trying to map my mouse button 4 (I'm pretty sure it's 4 rather than 5, but I can experiment) to click the back button in a program (screenshot attached). In terms of positioning it sits in the middle of 3 screens if that makes a difference.

I assume I can use something like (though I prob don't need the 1st two lines if using ControlClick?):

WinActivate("ConnectWise v2016.4 (41139)", "Chrome Legacy Window")
WinWaitActive("ConnectWise v2016.4 (41139)", "Chrome Legacy Window")
ControlClick("ConnectWise v2016.4 (41139)", "Chrome Legacy Window", "[CLASS:Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND; INSTANCE:1]", "Left", 1, 0, 30)

When I hover my mouse over the button I get the following information in Window Info

>>>> Window <<<<

You are using x,y params wrong, when used the coords must be the

ControlClick Coords:    81, 138

not the absolut MousePos coords.

That should have been so obvious given the position of the button was not anywhere near 0, 30 lol. TBH, I had some issues figuring out the controlID, turns out the above was correct by using the "Advanced (Class)", so while I was posting I was trying to figure that out more so than the coords.

Those coords work, all working now, thanks AB

Hmm, ok, so it's not working again, looks like the contolID is different...

Can someone advise what I can use in the ControlID field of the ControlClick()?

Hello.

Two options.

1.- Use mouse positions.

2.- Use IUIAutomation

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.

      Is there a way to close it through id? Is there a way to get it's position through it's ID?  
      Thanks in advance!

      I'm trying to click a button on a web page. I have added a couple of MsgBox lines to allow me to watch what happens on the page. As you can see the first half of my script enters data into text boxes on the page. I have no problem there. I just cannot click on the region buttons. The "set focus" line causes an outline to appear around the EU button and the "click button" line causes the "Pick a Region" text to disappear. Here is the code I have so far.
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://questchecker.com/") Local $iQuestID = "123456" Local $sCharacterName = "CharacterName" Local $colForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE) $iCount = 0 For $oForm In $colForms $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm) For $oFormElement In $oFormElements $iCount = $iCount + 1 Local $sTagName = StringLower($oFormElement.tagName) Local $sElementType = $oFormElement.type Local $sElementName = $oFormElement.name Switch $iCount Case 6 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, "MyRealm", 0) ; realm Case 7 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $sCharacterName, 0) Case 8 _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $iQuestID, 0) EndSwitch Next Next Local $oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "questForm") For $oButton In $oButtons If _IEFormElementGetValue($oButton) = "US" Then MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to set focus") _IEAction($oButton, "focus") MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to click button") _IEAction($oButton, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to quit") _IEQuit($oIE) Exit
