Selecting options from Context Menu

Recommended Posts


I'm working on a quick script to automate part of my workflow for some shop drawings I need to make.

Currently I'm stuck on trying to change my selection type. This is done via a right click context menu that allows me to choose different types of selecting. The script right clicks however I cannot have it click an option within the context menu.

I had assumed I could just get a control ID using the Window Info tool but no such luck clicking anywhere else causes the context menu to close.

I've tried the following so far:

ControlClick("C6-530","Select color","")
ControlClick("C6-530","Select color","[CLASS:EasyStoneView; INSTANCE:1]")

Attachment is a screenshot of the context menu.

There is a hotkey to not require a 'freeze' in the window info tool...ctrl+alt+f...unfreeze, mouse over the context, then refreeze...on the autoit window info tool.

Standard ones are
