how to use simplySpy

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to use control click in a script to click on a tab in a windows desktop app.  I get the following info about the tab from simplyspy.  How do I use the simply spy info?  If I uncomment out the different _UIAM_Actions for oP(1-3) for highlighting (one at a time), then run the code nothing happens.  

At least we have an element title: [Project] class: []

Having the following values for all properties: 
Title is: <Project> Class   := <>   controltype:= <UIA_TabItemControlTypeId>    ,<50019>    , (0000C363)    58;30;68;25
*** Parent Information top down ***
2: Title is: <Innovaya Studio with Sage (Archtectural 2017_V1.invx)>    Class   := <WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.1e84ccb_r16_ad1>  controltype:= <UIA_WindowControlTypeId> ,<50032>    , (0000C370)    -8;-8;1616;876
"Title:=Innovaya Studio with Sage (Archtectural 2017_V1.invx);controltype:=UIA_WindowControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.1e84ccb_r16_ad1""   
1: Title is: <The Ribbon>   Class   := <WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.1e84ccb_r16_ad1>  controltype:= <UIA_PaneControlTypeId>   ,<50033>    , (0000C371)    0;-8;1600;157
"Title:=The Ribbon;controltype:=UIA_PaneControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.1e84ccb_r16_ad1""    
0: Title is: <Ribbon Tabs>  Class   := <>   controltype:= <UIA_TabControlTypeId>    ,<50018>    , (0000C362)    0;30;1600;25
"Title:=Ribbon Tabs;controltype:=UIA_TabControlTypeId;class:="" 

;~ *** Standard code maintainable ***
#include "UIAWrappers.au3"
AutoItSetOption("MustDeclareVars", 1)

_UIA_setVar("oP1","Title:=Innovaya Studio with Sage (Archtectural 2017_V1.invx);controltype:=UIA_WindowControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.1e84ccb_r16_ad1") ;Innovaya Studio with Sage (Archtectural 2017_V1.invx)
_UIA_setVar("oP2","Title:=The Ribbon;controltype:=UIA_PaneControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.1e84ccb_r16_ad1")  ;The Ribbon
_UIA_setVar("oP3","Title:=Ribbon Tabs;controltype:=UIA_TabControlTypeId;class:=")   ;Ribbon Tabs

;~ $oUIElement=_UIA_getObjectByFindAll("Project.mainwindow", "title:=Project;ControlType:=UIA_TabItemControlTypeId", $treescope_subtree)
_UIA_setVar("oUIElement","Title:=Project;controltype:=UIA_TabItemControlTypeId;class:=") ;ControlType:=UIA_TabItemControlTypeId;classname:=")

;~ Actions split away from logical/technical definition above can come from configfiles

Simplespy gives you the hierarchy of elements and gives example code. As long as parents get highlighted you know you are recognizing the element. After that you can add the actions like setfocus click setvalue etc.

You need the parents to setfocus first you cannot uncomment them all.
