How to read current combobox selection from a Java awt applet

Recommended Posts




In the process of automate the reading of a Java applet form I found problems when reading the current selected value of a ComboBox.


I then replicated the case creating a small java applet that does the same thing (see CreateChoiceExample.java).

 Using the AutoIt Windows Information tool I got the following:

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:    Applet Viewer: testComboBox.CreateChoiceExample.class
Class:    SunAwtFrame
Position:    730, 200
Size:    216, 282
Style:    0x16CF0000
ExStyle:    0x00000100
Handle:    0x00000000001212E6

>>>> Control <<<<
Class:    ComboBox
Instance:    1
ClassnameNN:    ComboBox1
Advanced (Class):    [CLASS:ComboBox; INSTANCE:1]
ID:    1
Position:    67, 6
Size:    66, 22
ControlClick Coords:    16, 8
Style:    0x54000013
ExStyle:    0x00000000
Handle:    0x0000000000321080

>>>> Mouse <<<<
Position:    821, 265
Cursor ID:    0
Color:    0xFFDB90

>>>> StatusBar <<<<

>>>> ToolsBar <<<<

>>>> Visible Text <<<<
Applet started.

>>>> Hidden Text <<<<


I tried different methods (GUICtrlRead, ControlGetText, ControlCommand\GetCurrentSelection, ...) but without any success.

Any idea on how to achieve this goal?

Many thanks for helping.

Kind regards,
