ControlClick using handle


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have the below toolbar which has buttons that are not visible for the Window Info tool.

So, in order to be able to click on those buttons, I searched the forum and found the below script which returns all controls for a given window.

Now that I know the data of the buttons I tried to use the below commands to click a button.  Without any success :( :

 

;Using the ClassNN
ControlClick($HDL, "", "[ClassNN:WindowsForms10.COMBOBOX.app.0.33c0d9d2]")
; Using the button handle
ControlClick($HDL, "", 0x001205E2)
; trying to go through the array and select the desired button
#include <Functions.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$HDL = WinWait("GNB_L_Ro")
WinActivate($HDL)

$ControlList = _GetAllWindowsControls($HDL)

Sleep(1000)

ControlClick($HDL, "", $ControlList[37][2])


_ArrayDisplay($ControlList)

;_GetAllWindowsControls function is defined in Functions.au3 and contains the script from the above link. 

Any suggestions on how to click one of those buttons? Any help is more than appreciated.

Thank you!

      I have a Delphi compiled program that I use for work and I can read some logs with this function:
      Func __ReadExternalListBox() Local $hListBox, $iItemCount $hListBox = ControlGetHandle("Software Setup", "", "[CLASS:TListBox; INSTANCE:1]") ConsoleWrite("$hListBox = " & $hListBox & @CRLF) $iItemCount = _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($hListBox) For $i = $iStart To $iItemCount - 1 ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlListBox_GetText($hListBox,$i) & @CRLF) Next EndFunc ;==>__ReadExternalListBox I can find pid and full path of the process.
      The problem is when I must open another process: I can't read the new ListBox because the title of the window to read is the same and the function 
      $hListBox = ControlGetHandle("Software Setup", "", "[CLASS:TListBox; INSTANCE:1]") return me only one handle.
      With Autoinfo I can read handle: is, for this instance, 0x0001099C and is $hListBox

      But I need to automize some function and I can't always change in runtime this values.
      Ideas? Is there e method to read this title windows associated to a determined pid?
      PS:
      I don't need the handle from the pid windows application, but from its control
      if I use
      _WinAPI_EnumProcessWindows() the function return me window handle, not Control handle
      I
      In this case Windows Handle is 0x001007DA but I need Control Handle that is 0x0001099C
      Thankyou

      I'm trying to call WinList() with a handle. That should be possible:
      But I only get back an 2d array that looks like this:
      ---------
      0 |
      (That means no window was found.)
      It's not the window or the handle. When I call other functions like WinExists() or WinGetHandle() it works.
      Is it because of me, the description in the reference or because of Autoit who makes a mistake?
      No, because of the rest of my program I don't want to use WinGetTitle() because the format of WinList() has to be kept. Alternatively, I could create a 2d array myself, but it should also work with WinList() ... I hope.

      Hello,
      Either drag drop the opened file on the server and the temp file, Aut2Exe could not copy to the destination file, as that one is opened, to the edits of this GUI, or take the Aut2Exe error message line to your clipboard, the line will be split automatically.
      This script does not check
      For the required rights to the destination folder (to close open file handles) for correct input Use either clipboard (Aut2Exe message), drag & drop, or copy the full paths of source and destination file *IN ONE* (don't type, if you want to do so, modify the script, for me it's fine this way ;-)  
      Example Error Message:

      I want to click on a button that is inside a custom ToolBar on a nonAutoIT created form.  I've been using MouseClick but that fails if the toolbar is detached or if the form is resized.
      There is no ID associated with the toolbar but there is a handle.  I'm thinking that to get the handle I need a ControlID but that only gets me to the toolbar and I'd then need to have a way to identify the position of a button in order to click on it.  
      I'd found a discussion about identifying the position of a noname button by, I believe, it's Tip text back in December but I can't find it now.  Memory is a bit fuzzy on how I even got to the topic because at the time I was searching for something else.   I'll continue to search but if anyone has seen the topic, or knows of another solution could you please point me in that direction. 
      Thank you.

      The problem with not knowing the answer is not knowing the correct question to ask to find the answer. This is the exact predicament that I find myself at this moment so I will do my best to put order to some abstract thoughts.
      Given the function ControlGetHandle by definition retrieves the internal handle of a control. Let’s assume for the sake of argument that I have turned off UAC on both my test system and my problem system and that both systems are Windows 7 x86.That regardless of whether I have #RequireAdmin at the beginning of my script, that the results are the same on my test system.
      That the lines of code that I am having difficulty with are as follows
      $d = 0 Do $TestX = ControlFocus("Pxl", "Database has expired for", "Button1") $TestXa = ControlGetHandle("Pxl", "Database has expired for", "Button1") If $TestXa <> 0 Then ControlClick("Pxl", "Database has expired for", "Button1") Sleep(2000) EndIf $d = $d + 1 Until $d = 7What I am seeing happen is that on a test system, this works and I am able to interact with this button. However, if I take this same code to another system that has this client software installed, I cannot. I checked to see what was going on by doing the following:
      $Hope=WinExists("Pxl", "Database has expired for") MsgBox(0,"","If equals one window can be seen = " & $Hope) MsgBox(0,"",WinGetText("Pxl", "Database has expired for"))The result was a zero with no text being returned on the problem system. I then had the client software uninstalled and reinstalled making sure that elevated permissions were used. Following the reinstall, WinExists returned a 1, the text was returned, and the automation was successful. Sunshine, puppies and unicorns all day long.
      Two days later, on this same system, WinExists went back to being a zero for some unexplained reason. After doing an uninstall / reinstall routine again, WinExists still returns a zero. The fairy tale ended.
      Part of me wants to believe that it is an issue with the client installer but the other part fails to understand why it would just stop working or why on another system of the same OS persuasion, it runs flawlessly for 5,000 executions.
      To take this a step farther, if I run the Client software on the problem system as an administrator, WinExists returns a 1. So what would make a control that was previously available to a standard user session suddenly only want to give up its information when run as administrator? Why would one install work for 2 days and then break? Then have another install not work?
      So if I am making sense to this point, I have to ask, what I am missing? I have a reliable test where neither the script nor the client application need to be run as administrator yet I have this problem on other systems.
      Are there other factors that would create this behavior in AutoIt other than UAC?
      If I wanted to search the internet to find articles on how AutoIt retrieves the handles or better yet how the handles are exposed to the user session, what would I really search for? I have looked at process explorer and I see an access column if I turn on handles but it is my understanding that this is the access that was requested at the time the handle was created and is aimed at what the control is allowed to do but not who can access the information of the control. I am guessing that this possibility of access to the handle exists as it is the only conclusion that fits with what I am seeing, or am I wrong? This last question is what drove me to ask this question in the forum as I am having no success in understanding the concept of how this happens or what to search for. Any ideas?
       
      As a side note, here is what the info tool exposes about the button:
      >>>> Window <<<< Title: Pxl Class: #32770 Position: 477, 412 Size: 326, 161 Style: 0x94C801C5 ExStyle: 0x00010101 Handle: 0x00200880 >>>> Control <<<< Class: Button Instance: 1 ClassnameNN: Button1 Name: Advanced (Class): [CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1] ID: 2 Text: OK Position: 226, 96 Size: 88, 26 ControlClick Coords: 22, 14 Style: 0x50030000 ExStyle: 0x00000004 Handle: 0x00130752 >>>> Mouse <<<< Position: 728, 547 Cursor ID: 0 Color: 0xDBDBDB >>>> StatusBar <<<< >>>> ToolsBar <<<< >>>> Visible Text <<<< OK Database has expired for >>>> Hidden Text <<<<  
      P.S. Thank you Jon for getting my access restored.
      V/r
