button click not working on windows server 2008

Recommended Posts

I have a button control as below screen.

Capture.JPG

This one I am able to suppress using below code in all the OS.

But on server 2008, sometimes the button highlighted in the image is not getting clicked and some times it is working.

I have cross checked the IDs when it is not working, but it is working only.

 

$win1 = "erwin Mart Configuration"


   $MartConfigWindow = _WinWaitActivate1($win1,"Database Details")
ControlSetText($MartConfigWindow, "", "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.378734a6", $dbserver)
      ControlSetText($MartConfigWindow, "", "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.378734a4", $dbname)
      ControlSetText($MartConfigWindow, "", "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.378734a9", $dbuser)
      ControlSetText($MartConfigWindow, "", "WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.378734a8", $dbpassword)
      ;Button clicl logic
      $iControlClickStatus = ControlClick($MartConfigWindow, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a; INSTANCE:2]")
      
      ;If above button click fails, trying with mouse click on the control
      if ControlFocus($MartConfigWindow, "", "WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a2")=1 then ;sometimes above button fails in win server 2008,so this loop
         Send("{ENTER")
      EndIf

 

Any suggestion on how to resolve this.?

Are you sure "WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a" still exist ?

it's probably a timing issue. you need to wait for controls to exist before poking them. Just because the control's host form is loaded, does not meant that button is ready. try adding a 5 second delay. if that works, then you need to implement a way to wait for controls.

Thank you very much for your inputs.

 

This is the windowinfo tool output.

Capture.JPG

It is showing  WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a

I already kept sleep of 40 seconds for every control, but still issue occurs.

Where, precisely, are you getting the Delay function from?

I feel your pain. Talking to WinForms and the newer WPF Forms is what drove me to use Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise Coded UI projects. They can record tests for ANYTHING and then you can maintain and add stuff at will. Other than that, you need to use the .NET CLR that was created by a user in these forums. Search for it.

It should work. make sure the Class is Constant. While Automating NET app is common get diferent classname.

Try to get the button position and use mouseclick.

Thanks @Earthshine, but is there any possibility to do in AutoIT itself instead of changing everything to CodedUI.

With Coded UI, you just record your tests!! and they run time after time. i would rather program in c# anyway so it's a no-brainer for me (you can use ANY .NET language, I love Python  as well for scripting). But with that link I posted above this comment, you should be able to talk to that tab control and the buttons.

 

thank you  Danyfirex !!! Loved your samples in that kit

      Hello,
      When new versions e.g. of your compiled script cannot be replaced on the server, as they are in use, you can use this script to manage to close the open handles and to replace the old file with your new version.

      Hi everyone,
      I wonder if there is a cloud service that can offer a physical server so that AutoIT can turn as it is in a physical machine.
      Thank you

      Folks,
      I have an issue I've been trying to solve for a while, I'm trying to add static routes in DHCP via a 121 route rule in Windows 2012 R2 is a brutal manual process and wanted to automate this via AutoIT.
       
      When I use the "ControlGetText" everything displays properly in the MSG box but when I try and use "ControlSetText" or "ControlSend" the values won't display in the input box but the action comes back as successful?
      Anyone able to help me with this? I'm thinking this might be an active window issue but i'm not sure.
      Here is a part of my code.
       
      $hWnd = WinWait("[TITLE:Add a Static Route]","", 10)
      WinActivate($hWnd)
      $Status = ControlSend($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:4]", "192"); Does not add 192 to the text box.
      Local $sTextEdit1 = ControlGetText($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]")
      ConsoleWrite ( "ControlSend Status: " &  $Status & @CRLF); Returns a Value of 1
      ConsoleWrite ( "ControlGetText Value Edit1: " &  $sTextEdit1 & @CRLF);
       
      Please see attachment for more info.

      I am clicking on a button on to submit o form UI.
      Problem is, the code working on windows 10,7, server 2012 r2 but not on windows server 2008.
      I checked the IDs also on that OS, they didn't change.
      Even the ControlClick is returning the status as success only but button is not getting clicked.
      But controlsettext on other fields are working.
      ;$MartConfigWindow is window object ControlClick($MartConfigWindow, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a; INSTANCE:2]")
