Automatically wait for desired control, then manipulate it

Recommended Posts

This is pretty useful to me at least, I hope to others. Whenever you need to poke a button or such on a GUI, you can just make calls to this UDF and instruct it how long to wait, 0 is forever, anyway, let the code to the explaining. Feel free to help expand this UDF. I plan to create new ones as I go along that support all the Win32 and .NET Controls. Ultimately, I would like to be able to fully control any type of control, this works well with most. Just an example of what you can do.

 

The test installs and can uninstall 7-Zip 15.14 (x64) Setup.exe

When I ran the test it produced the following console output : I have improved the logging messages in the code provided so logs will be more rich with data.

      Hi All,
      I think I'm so close to solving an automation problem but need that last bit of help. Anyone familiar with automation might know this answer.  The beginning of this code is a nice example from @IanN1990 which I dug into a little and found it's counting my tabs correctly in Chrome.  How may I print out each tab name (probably some sort of property in the automation object)
      #include "CUIAutomation2.au3" ; Window handle Local $hWindow = WinGetHandle( "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]" ) If Not IsHWnd( $hWindow ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$hWindow ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$hWindow OK" & @CRLF ) ; Activate window WinActivate( $hWindow ) Sleep( 100 ) ; UI Automation object Local $oUIAutomation = ObjCreateInterface( $sCLSID_CUIAutomation, $sIID_IUIAutomation, $dtagIUIAutomation ) If Not IsObj( $oUIAutomation ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$oUIAutomation ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$oUIAutomation OK" & @CRLF ) ; Desktop element Local $pDesktop, $oDesktop $oUIAutomation.GetRootElement( $pDesktop ) $oDesktop = ObjCreateInterface( $pDesktop, $sIID_IUIAutomationElement, $dtagIUIAutomationElement ) If Not IsObj( $oDesktop ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$oDesktop ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$oDesktop OK" & @CRLF ) ; Chrome window Local $pCondition $oUIAutomation.CreatePropertyCondition( $UIA_ClassNamePropertyId, "Chrome_WidgetWin_1", $pCondition ) If Not $pCondition Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition OK" & @CRLF ) Local $pChrome, $oChrome $oDesktop.FindFirst( $TreeScope_Descendants, $pCondition, $pChrome ) $oChrome = ObjCreateInterface( $pChrome, $sIID_IUIAutomationElement, $dtagIUIAutomationElement ) If Not IsObj( $oChrome ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$oChrome ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$oChrome OK" & @CRLF ) ; Tab item Local $pCondition1 $oUIAutomation.CreatePropertyCondition( $UIA_ControlTypePropertyId, $UIA_TabItemControlTypeId, $pCondition1 ) If Not $pCondition1 Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition1 ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition1 OK" & @CRLF ) ;~ Find All tab items Local $pTabs, $oUIElementArray, $iElements, $pFound, $oFound, $value $oChrome.FindAll( $TreeScope_Descendants, $pCondition1, $pTabs ) $oUIElementArray = ObjCreateInterface($pTabs, $sIID_IUIAutomationElementArray, $dtagIUIAutomationElementArray) $oUIElementArray.Length( $iElements ) ConsoleWrite( "$iElements:" & $iElements & @CRLF ) For $i = 0 To $iElements - 1 Local $pFound $oUIElementArray.GetElement($i, $pFound) ConsoleWrite($pFound & @CRLF) $pFound.GetCurrentPropertyValue($UIA_NamePropertyId,$value) ;<==PROBLEM HERE ConsoleWrite($value & @CRLF) Next  
      Thanks for any direction.

      TeraCopy Timer - A program of mine, front end really, that I have been working on (on & off) for some time, but not shared here before, that I recall. Third party program TeraCopy is required.
      Many of you will be familiar with TeraCopy, and it has been discussed here at AF on several occasions, in various sub forums, including Chat.
      BE ADVISED - I still use an older version of TeraCopy (v2.27), a goody but an oldy, so have only tested my program with that. It may work with the newer v3.xx, or may be easily adjusted to do so, but I have not yet gone that route. Likewise, I only use it with Win 7 and Win XP, but I don't imagine there should be any issues with newer Windows. Add to that, my program being devised and created in AutoIt v3.3.0.0.
      So what is TeraCopy Timer and why might you need it?
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Those familiar with TeraCopy use, know you can run multiple copy or move jobs either simultaneously or concurrently (one immediately after another has finished). With the free version at least, you have no control over precise order or timing, and no way to deal (without manual interaction) with the pesky Thumbs.db files in Win XP. TeraCopy Timer allows you to do all those things, and in a batch fashion.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Some screenshots and brief explanation
      Main Window
      Minimalist Window
      This new WAIT feature is the simplest and best way to use the program generally (in my view) ... but check out the following, as it is not always the case.
      Advanced Delay Window
      WARNING - It should go without saying, that you take all the usual precautions. For instance, don't use move with the only copy you have of precious files. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP! Don't hold me liable for anything, except for being a nice guy who likes to share.
      TeraCopy Timer v3.5.zip  (MAJOR UPDATE - see detail at Post #39)
      Enjoy!
      OLDER DOWNLOADS
      P.S. I am not affiliated in any way with those who created and provide the excellent third party program - TeraCopy.

      The rule against game automation is misguided and unhelpful for the following reasons.
       
      I am a developer, using AutoIt to automate testing for a game that I am developing. Singleplayer games can be mundane and sometimes cheating can be overlooked. Multiplayer games usually have anticheat against repetitive robotic actions anyways. People want to override the control schemes of games with bad customization. Eg. Axiom Verge, Fortnite (Crouching). Game automation is not always bad. If the user feels the need to automate a singleplayer game for boring or mundane tasks, that is their choice. Similarly, if I wish to use scripts to automate testing, that is my choice.
      Game automation can be a problem for online multiplayer games, giving players a competitive advantage. This could be countered by common sense; ask OP what game they are automating, and is it an online game? What is this script for, and what does it seem to do?

      Please revise the rule as it seems very unnecessary and harmful to people seeking help with innocent attempts at game automation.
