SysListView search text and click

Recommended Posts


Hello guys,

I am new to AutoIt and not a good programmer. I have gone through guides and tutorials to get my script going. 

However, i am stuck on a little function. 

I need to search a text and click on the searched text. The program that i am using autoit with, ControlListView won't work since it needs to click on the text. 

The texts are under SysListView32 class. 

I tried following codes

$_UserName = "USERNAME"
$hWnd = WinGetHandle("WINDOW INFO")
$Finditem = ControlListView($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:1]", "Finditem", $_UserName)
$Select = ControlListView($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:1]", "Select",$Finditem)
_GUICtrlListView_SetItemSelected($select, 0, True, True)

any idea or tip?

Did you check the return values/possible errors of each function? :)
