Having Problems to press certain buttons - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

I was trying to automate photo presentation program. But here's the problem. Simple "             Send("{right}")             " doesn't work, neither does "              Send("{right down}")                Sleep(10)                  Send("{right up}")                      ". The photo programm works in strange environment and I don't really know what to do.

P.S Window is active when i run bot, also it presses left/right on other programs.

What is the photo presentation program you're using? If you use the AutoIt Window Info tool (in the same folder where you installed AutoIt) what information does it show for the application window?

Try controlsend and otherwise try tools mentioned in faq 31. Try allways activate on your window or setfocus. Tell what simplespy or inspect.exe returns.

ControlSend doesn't work either. None of tools mentioned in faq31 worked or I did something wrong (not sure, I'm fresh with AutoIt). I have ActivateWindow in my code.

I have run simplespy, that's what it gave


At least we have an element title: [Program Manager] class: [Progman]

Having the following values for all properties:
Title is: <Program Manager>    Class   := <Progman>    controltype:= <UIA_PaneControlTypeId>    ,<50033>    , (0000C371)    0;0;3200;1080
*** Parent Information top down ***

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

_UIA_setVar("ProgramManager.mainwindow","title:=Program Manager;classname:=Progman")

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


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

_UIA_setVar("ProgramManager.mainwindow","title:=Program Manager;classname:=Progman")

The program is made by a student and I have to use it (order from professor). I have no idea how and what he used to make it. I also have no contact info to him, he already graduated.
