AutoIt Window Info does not differenciate the Controls of a software

Recommended Posts

KB505

Hello,

 

I'm starting a script in AutoIT to automize a task in a software. I need to click a several Controls
I'm just starting to learn AutoIT, and discovered that we can use the Window Info tool (au3info) to identify controls precisely and targetting safely a specific button.
However, when I try it, I realize that most of the controls in my toolbar have the same Control Info (No ID, same class, same instance, ...). The only thing that changes is the ControlClicks Coord but I don't think that it's interesting, I don't see the difference with the Mouse Coordinates. Besides, I was aiming to write a stable script that would work even if the button changes a little bit of place for example. 

Should I use another tool that Window Info tool to detect this Controls ? Is there another way to identify a Control ? 

Thank you in advance for your help

Hi,

You need to give us more informations about what you are trying to do: which software? what au3info shows exactly? what's the exact goal of your script?

Put some screenshots if possible :)

Sorry for the late reply. Thank you junkew for your answer, i'm gonna study this. 
 

@Neutro : For example, on Windows 10, when I try to select the buttom chrome on the toolbar, here is what I have in the control section of Au3Info  :
 Class : MSTaskListWXlass 
Instance : 1 
ClassnameNN : MSTasklistWClass1
Name
Advanced Mode : [CLASS : MSTaskListWClass; INSTANCE:1] 
ID 
Text                        Application in execution 
Position                                 ...
Size                                        ...
ControlClick Coords            ...
Style                                       0x...
ExStyle                                   ...
Handle                                   0x...  

And I get that for any button on the toolbar (World, Outlook, ...). That's why it seems unefficient to me, am I wrong ? Is there an info here that could allow me to use ControlClick to select the Chrome button ? 
By the way, I know that I could do that with a simple Run. It is just for the exemple. 

I just discovered Control Viewer, I think I'm gonna try it. Maybe it will be easier to use than Au3Info

      If is possible, what is the solution please?

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.
