I'm developing again (everybody ruuun! )
I would like to develope a script that goes through basicly every user control on a window, and log things that happens, and maybe do some screenshots. I did something like this before.
My problem, which I would like to avoid this time (to improve my understanding and skill) , was that when I was unable to get a ControlID or handler or anything, I simply did some math and clicked on the coordinates it should have been (for example, maxing the window, and knowing the initial set up I was ablo to calculate given control position). I know that this is a bad solution for a number of reasons.
Now I got authorization to install autoIT here, and i started to the work, AU3Info was unable to find anything on the window (this could be a problem, since autoIT doesn't see anything on it then, if I understood the help file) So I got the SimpleSpy script (source:
I added a bit of code to the original to display ID as well, what I received is this:
Mouse position is retrieved 115-207
At least we have an element title: [ADD] class: [Button] ID:  (<-- coded this to display ID here as well)
Having the following values for all properties:
Title is: <ADD> Class := <Button> controltype:= <UIA_ButtonControlTypeId> ,<50000> , (0000C350) 10;187;120;35
*** Parent Information top down ***
3: Title is: <Compass> Class := <Window> controltype:= <UIA_WindowControlTypeId> ,<50032> , (0000C370) -8;-8;1936;1056
2: Title is: <> Class := <MainView> controltype:= <UIA_CustomControlTypeId> ,<50025> , (0000C369) 0;23;1920;1017
1: Title is: <> Class := <TileNavigationView> controltype:= <UIA_CustomControlTypeId> ,<50025> , (0000C369) 0;23;1920;967
0: Title is: <> Class := <AreasView> controltype:= <UIA_CustomControlTypeId> ,<50025> , (0000C369) 0;132;1920;858
so far I wrote this script:
WinActivate('Test') ;It works!! :D first official interaction Sleep(1000) ;1 sec sleep to be sure ControlClick('Test', '', '50000') If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, 'Error', 'ControlClick error') EndIf Sleep(1000) MsgBox(1,"Tracer message", 'ControlClick has happened') ;MouseClick() ;ControlCommand() AutoIt activates the window, but the click on the given button doesnt happen (I tried to write 50000 without ' ' on ID).
M'I doing the @error part correctly ? (no error Msg has been displayed), sorry I rarely use AutoIT and seems to forget less and less after each neglect, but still I'm far from a proffessional
Any help or suggestion is welcome, thank you for your time and insight!
Basically I'm trying to figure out what would be the most efficient means of making multiple use buttons. What I'd like is to be able to click a button and pop up a msgbox to gather some info, or two message boxes, but upon entering that info and the msgbox dialogue being over, it'll then switch to a different function. I was thinking of using 1/0 to designate which is true or not, but not sure if that'd be the most efficient way. Still very new to coding, and autoit, any help would be great!
I have created a bit of code to enable a script to find named controls on a userform, even though the MS CLASS description changes between machines.
e.g. The CLASS "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.24b689f_r14_ad1" for a text box on one PC is different on another.
The below code, (a cut-down version of the code from jdelaney original post) loops through all the controls and finds the first one with the desired string in the control class name - in this case "EDIT". This name is then usable for setting the text using ControlSetText.
#include <array.au3> WinActivate("Edit Part Rule") $TheClassName = GetAllWindowsControls(WinGetHandle("Edit Part Rule"), "EDIT") ;Sleep(500) ControlSetText("Edit Part Rule", "", "[CLASS:" & $TheClassName & "; INSTANCE:3]", $CmdLine) ControlSetText("Edit Part Rule", "", "[CLASS:" & $TheClassName & "; INSTANCE:4]", $CmdLine) Func GetAllWindowsControls($hCallersWindow, $sStringIncludes) ; Get all list of controls $sClassList = WinGetClassList($hCallersWindow) ; Create array $aClassList = StringSplit($sClassList, @CRLF, 2) ; Sort array _ArraySort($aClassList) _ArrayDelete($aClassList, 0) ; Loop For $i = 0 To UBound($aClassList) - 1 If StringInStr($aClassList[$i], $sStringIncludes) Then Return $aClassList[$i] EndIf Next EndFunc ;==>GetAllWindowsControls If anyone has any suggestions to improve it, or a better way to achieve the same thing, please let me know.
I want creat GUI, have button 1 to 10, but only use loop for ... to ... step ... next.
A UDF with Extended Functions for Window Management
This UDF is still in the development phase. All code works and should be generally bug free, however function names and parameters are subject to change.
Fixes _WindowGetClassList's barbaric returning of a @LF separated string instead of an array.
Automating applications that change their controls' handles/classes on each launch (e.g. half of Cisco's programs)
10/04/2016 (v0.4): _WinGetClassNNList Fixed : Not Returning an Index when using $2D_ARRAY _WinGetClassNNList Fixed : Not Properly returning $aArray[x] on Classes with instances > 9 when using $2D_ARRAY 10/03/2016 (v0.3): _WinGetClassList Added : Exactly the same as WinGetClassList but returns a more civilized Array _WinGetClassNNList Added : Returns Classes and their instances in either a 1D or 2D array depending on Flags _WindowGetHandleList Renamed: _WinGetHandleList SCRIPT BREAKING! _WindowGetHandleListFromPos Renamed: _WinGetHandleListFromPos SCRIPT BREAKING! 10/01/2016 (v0.2): WindowsExConstants.au3 Added : Flags in _WindowGetHandleListFromPos _WindowGetHandleListFromPos Removed: ConsoleWrite left in during debug _WindowGetHandleListFromPos Added : Flag for if part of a Control is at $X, $Y return it as well. 10/01/2016 (v0.1): _WindowGetHandleList Added : Retrieves the handles of classes from a window. _WindowGetHandleListFromPos Added : Retrieves the handles of classes at a specific position from a window.
