How do I click this button?

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,
      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: [50000] (<-- 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
      "Title:=Compass;controltype:=UIA_WindowControlTypeId;class:=Window""    
      2: Title is: <>    Class   := <MainView>    controltype:= <UIA_CustomControlTypeId>    ,<50025>    , (0000C369)    0;23;1920;1017
      "Title:=;controltype:=UIA_CustomControlTypeId;class:=MainView""    
      1: Title is: <>    Class   := <TileNavigationView>    controltype:= <UIA_CustomControlTypeId>    ,<50025>    , (0000C369)    0;23;1920;967
      "Title:=;controltype:=UIA_CustomControlTypeId;class:=TileNavigationView""    
      0: Title is: <>    Class   := <AreasView>    controltype:= <UIA_CustomControlTypeId>    ,<50025>    , (0000C369)    0;132;1920;858
      "Title:=;controltype:=UIA_CustomControlTypeId;class:=AreasView""
       
      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!

      Hi,
      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[1]) ControlSetText("Edit Part Rule", "", "[CLASS:" & $TheClassName & "; INSTANCE:4]", $CmdLine[2]) Func GetAllWindowsControls($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.

      A UDF with Extended Functions for Window Management

      DISCLAIMER:
      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.
       
      Notes:
      Fixes _WindowGetClassList's barbaric returning of a @LF separated string instead of an array.
       
      Potential Uses:
      Automating applications that change their controls' handles/classes on each launch (e.g. half of Cisco's programs)
       
      Functions:
      _WinGetClassList
      _WinGetClassNNList
      _WindowGetHandleList
      _WindowGetHandleListFromPos
