How to Select Radio buttons in the GUI

Recommended Posts

ur

I have below screen when I launch the application.

license.png

By default the first radio button is checked.

I want to select the second radio button as highlighted.

And when it is selected, the textbox highlighted will be enabled and we need to enter the license details.

 

To do that, I tried to get the control id with windo info tool , but I am getting the second section(Concurrent Licenses) completely as "Button" class with ID 12.But not that radiobutton ID.

Even I tried with that as below.

$hwd =WinWaitActivate("erwin Data Modeler Licensing","Acquire concurrent u")
ControlCommand($hwd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:12]","Check")

But not working.

Any suggestions please.

You could use Alt+W

Thanks @Subz

Your code is working but it is like depending on the shortcut key, but handling with a control id is more helpful.

For the textbox part, I got the control ID and the below code is working to add the text there.

ControlCommand($hwd,"","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]","EditPaste", 'string')

Is there any similar approach to handle the radio buttons also and how to get the Control ID for it, as windowinfo is not getting that text.

And also the below code is appending to the existing text in the textbox, how to clear everything in it?

ControlCommand($hwd,"","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]","EditPaste", 'string')

Try alternative tool (download links are in the post #86)

For replace text use the function

ControlSetText()

Can you try, this works on the latest version of CA Erwin Data Modler (except the latest instance is 14 rather than 12) 

ControlCommand($hwd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]","Check")
ControlSend($hwd, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:12]", "!W")

So I am using below one at present.
 

ControlClick($hwd, "", "[ID:1425]")
Send("{CTRLDOWN}a{CTRLUP}{DEL}")
ControlCommand($hwd,"","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]","EditPaste", 'chesr03-1w7')

It is selecting the radio button, but how did you get the ID for this?

ControlSetText is not working in this case for textbox.

I tried 

$time_out = 120
Func _WinWaitActivate1($title,$text,$timeout=$time_out);Will Return the window Handler
    ;Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text)
    $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    if not ($dHandle = 0) then
        If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
        return WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
    Else
        ExitProgram("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...")
    EndIf
 EndFunc
$erwin = 'C:\Program Files\erwin\Data Modeler r10\erwin.exe'
Run($erwin)
$hwd = _WinWaitActivate1("erwin Data Modeler Licensing","Acquire concurrent u")
ControlCommand($hwd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]","Check")

ControlSetText($hWnd, "","1425", "This is some text")
;ControlSetText($hWnd, "","[ID:1425]", "This is some text")
;ControlSetText($hWnd, "","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]", "This is some text")

But none of the below statements working, any help?

ControlSetText($hWnd, "","1425", "This is some text")
ControlSetText($hWnd, "","[ID:1425]", "This is some text")
ControlSetText($hWnd, "","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]", "This is some text")

Not sure why the last one isn't working for you, it works fine for me have included what works for me + how I got the Instance for the buttons:

$hwd = WinWaitActive("CA ERwin Data Modeler Licensing","Acquire concurrent u")
Local $sControl
For $i = 0 To 100
    $sControl = ControlGetText($hwd, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:" & $i & "]")
    If $sControl <> "" Then ConsoleWrite($i & " = " & $sControl & @CRLF)
Next

;~ These commands work for me
ControlCommand($hwd, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]", "Check")
ControlSetText($hwd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:3]", "This is some text")

Also have you just tried preconfiguring the registry with the settings?

I didn't get you.

Are you telling about saving the license server details in the registry directly instead of entering in the UI?

Actually we are testing whether dialogs are coming or not correctly, so automating the UI part itself.The registry part is already completed

Hi @Subz

I need one more help from you.

Is there anyway to read or write 64 bit registries from 32 bit exe.

As my exe should be able to run on both the 32 and 64, I have compiled it to 32 bit and it not accessing the 64 bit hive.

Can you please suggest.

      Hello everyone,
      First, watch the screenshot I attached:

      The background beneath the radios is that a value is subtracted from Player 1, and added to player 2, in the case of the screenshot I made.
      You can see that I created 2 radio groups. On the upper part, radio 1 and 2, and on the lower part radio 5 and 6. Now I automated the buttons in such a way ,that when in group 1 player 1 is selected, player 2 in group 2 automatically gets checked for you. Same thing when checking player 2 in the upper part: player 1 gets checked on the lower part. I did this because there is no reason selecting player 1 or 2 twice, because nothing will change. Now that runs smoothly using this script:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio6),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio6,1) If GUICtrlRead($Radio2)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio6),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5,1) If GUICtrlRead($Radio5)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio2),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio1),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio2,1) If GUICtrlRead($Radio6)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio1),1) And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio2),1) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio1,1) But there is a problem when clicking on a radio in group 2, the lower one. It is very hard to check one, because for some reason the radio get's deselected instantly most of the time. I already tried to prevent it by using the second BitAND() in the codes I shared (It doesn't check the radio automatically if the other radio in the other group is selected, meaning that the user want's to switch the radios). But it didn't work.
      Does somebody know why you sometimes can't check radio 5 or 6 (the lower part)?

      Hi guys! I have these checkbox that I'm trying to click on. They have the same inner-text string but a different ID. Sometime there can be as many as 4 checkbox
      with the same string but the ID is always different. I tried a few methods down below but I'm unable to make any real results. Any suggestions or solutions I would
      appreciate it very much.

And I'm unable to submit that without a click action.

I'm allowed only to check 1 box selection at a time per day for the submit button to work.  Any preference to select only the second box and bypass the other?
      Func _Morning() For $a In _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") If StringInStr(_IEPropertyGet($a, "innerText"), "Morning") Then _IEAction($a, "click") EndIf Next Sleep(10) ToolTip('Morning selected') EndFunc ;==>Morning The last method I tried was _IEGetObjById(). It doesn't click or respond to the checkbox.
      Func _Click1() $oChk = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "cx_checkbox1") _IEAction($oChk, 'click') Sleep(20) ToolTip('box1') EndFunc ;==>_Click1

      Hello,
      I am struggling in merging GUITreeViewEx, Shelltristate and enhancing to handle a third state that means : some items under are selected.
      I have difficulties handling expand order and key Space (especially when node is collapsed).
      Here the zip with UDF and and example.
       
      The problem I might need some advice to handle : 
      1- When load Treeview, have a correct settings of the checkbox for a tristate tree
      2 - Handle keyboard used for walking in tree
           Chicken is checked and  Steak is unchecked
          When walking with arrow to Meat, it gets unchecked
      3 - When node is collapsed and checked thru keyboard (space)
         the middle state is possible which should not
      Here is joined an animated gif showing the 3 problems
       
      Thanks for your advices

      Hello,
      I have used this forum to get help many times. I thought it was time to (hopefully) help others.
      I created a script that reads a text file with a list of videos, displays the videos in a GUI with checkboxes next to the names, and displays the selected videos. This will become a part of a larger script I am creating to test a video player. The tough part for me was creating the GUI and Dynamic list of videos. I had a lot of trouble finding samples to help me, but finally found one  written by Melba23. The link is in the code, so he gets credit for helping! I also have not used arrays much and they are very picky about looping through the arrays without getting the dreaded error " Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."  However diligence paid off!
      To run this code, take the video names commented below and create a videos.txt file in your script execution directory. You can put however many video names in this list. Thus the dynamic features of the code.
      Cheers!
