how to detect Hidden Buttons when they show up

4 posts in this topic

You know how online games usually have a launcher with a "connect" button thats hidden until it establishes a connection to the game server or somthing before showing it out.

how to use autoit to detect when the button shows up instead of guessing the delay time and without pixel detection?

also when i use

ControlSend("GAME", "", "Button1", 'MouseClick ("Left")' )

it beeps about 10 times before it clicks the button, the button wasnt even hidden and it causes bit of trouble. and if i set a delay for the clicks it wont work at all it just beeps every few sec

This line:

ControlSend("GAME", "", "Button1", 'MouseClick ("Left")' )

is equivalent to tabbing to the button with your keyboard and typing M o u s e C l i c k.... I believe you want ControlClick().

Try this out for size:

While Not ControlCommand('GAME', '', 'Button1', 'IsVisible')
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
ControlClick('GAME', '', 'Button1')

Thanks for the compliment! :">

For anyone else who stumbles on this thread wanting to wait for a greyed-out button to become available, the above example can be adapted by changing IsVisible to IsEnabled.
