A control is not detected in a menu

Recommended Posts

An application is there which is created using vc++,mostly mfc.

 

DOn't know the details completely.

 

WHen I try to automate the control clicks for testing the UI.

THe below control is not detected.

As you can see, during UI operations I can click the elements one by one.

But all the elements is selected as a whole set, when I use the Windowinfo tool.

How to click this using AutoIT.?

 

Please suggest.

Using a combination of Win* functions, ControlGetHandle() and _GUICtrlToolbar_ClickIndex(), you get what you want ;)

#include <GuiToolbar.au3>

Global $strWinTitle = "new 1 - Notepad++", _
       $hdlWinHandle, _
       $strNotepadTB = "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:1]", _
       $hdlNotepadTB

WinWaitActive($strWinTitle)

$hdlWinHandle = WinGetHandle($strWinTitle, "")
$hdlNotepadTB = ControlGetHandle($hdlWinHandle, "", $strNotepadTB)
_GUICtrlToolbar_ClickIndex($hdlNotepadTB, 1) ; It starts from 0, so it will click on "Open..."

Thank you @FrancescoDiMuro

I tried the below code at present, by keeping the relative coordinates.

$time_out = 100
Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=$time_out)
    ;Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text)
    $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    if not ($dHandle = 0) then
        If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
        WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
    Else
        Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...")
        Exit
    EndIf
EndFunc

;_WinWaitActivate only,but with returning of GUI window ID
Func _WinWaitActivate1($title,$text,$timeout=$time_out);Will Return the window Handler
    ;Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text)
    $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    if not ($dHandle = 0) then
        If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
        return WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
    Else
        Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...")
        Exit
    EndIf
 EndFunc


 $hwd = _WinWaitActivate1("erwin DM","Model Explorer")
 Send("!tam")
 $hwd = _WinWaitActivate1("Add-In Manager","Menu Item Details")
 ControlClick("Add-In Manager","Menu Item Details", "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:1]","left",1,10,14)

 

The coordinates 10,14 are gathered using windowinfo tool.

I will test on different resolutions to check whether it is working on all scenarios.

Instead of using ControlClick, it is better to use handles and controls to automate stuffs; just because, if you change resolution, or you move your window, you can't use that code.
The example I gave you uses only handles and controls from a sample Notepad++ window ( and it does the trick! ) :)

      For example, a context menu includes standardized options on more than one control, such as buttons or check boxes
      to Create a context menu on one item am using this function
      GUICtrlCreateContextMenu ($ HWND)

      so i tried to add an context menus to all the controls but the script will be long, for that if their are any solutions i hope to give it to me
      thanks in advanced

      Is there a (simple) way to make your script using a picture-control to resize the gui?
      This would be useful for a transparant pop-up window with a custom made theme using picture controls:
      $Form = GUICreate('', 301, 173, 5, 5, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) GUICtrlCreatePic(@scriptdir & "\resize_win.bmp", 0, 73, 20, 51) ; some api call or code telling the os to use this picture as a resize border GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT+$GUI_DOCKTOP+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While True if GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then Exit WEnd  
      EDIT: to make it more clear what i wanna do, if you go with the mouse arrow over the border of a re-sizable window the arrow changes to a "resize" arrow, you click and drag the border and then the window size adjusts to the mouse position until you release the mouse button.
      I want my picture control to be used the same way as the resize border to resize my window.

      Hi dear
      This is the first include file I designed
      This work is especially directed to NVDA free screen reader users
      It contains a set of functions that enable you to control the program
      Such as forcing the program to read a custom text
      Force it to stop talking
      Find out if the program is running
      And show custom text in the Braille screen
      Available functions are
      _nvdaControllerClient_Load()
      to load the dll file
      _nvdaControllerClient_free()
      to UnLoad the dll file
      _nvdaControllerClient_SpeakText()
      to speak a custom text
      _nvdaControllerClient_brailleMessage()
      to show custom text in the Braille screen
      _nvdaControllerClient_cancelSpeech()
      to Force the NVDA  to stop talking
      _nvdaControllerClient_testIfRunning()
      to check if the NVDA is running
      important note :
      All of these functions depend on a nvdaControllerClient32.dll
      I've added it in the attachments, as well as a file for examples, and other files
      As the source and examples in other languages
      For those who wanted to download the free screen reader, this is the download link from the official website
      https://www.nvaccess.org/download/
      i hope you like this topic
      I hope you will try it and give me your opinions
      Thank you all members and administrators for their help
      now with the  Attachments

      I wrote a script a few months ago that was working at the time. When I tried it today it wouldn't retrieve any controls.  The application successfully launches, but I cannot figure out how to retrieve the control from the window that is launched. I'm on a windows 10 machine using AutoIt v3.3.14.2. The only thing I can think of that has changed is windows updates? Code is below, any help is greatly appreciated.    ; Notes: ; HandleError( handleToCheck, MsgToLogOnFailure, terminateAutoItOnFail ) : function that simply checks the handle and quits AutoIt if not present ; all of this works well FileChangeDir( $CLIENT_APPLICATION_DIR ); Run( "Client.exe" ) Local $hClient = WinWaitActive( $CLIENT_TITLE, "", 10 ) $terminateOnFail = 1 HandleError( $hClient, "LaunchClient::Error: Failed to launch client. Either timed-out or failed.", $terminateOnFail ) LogToFile( "Client launched, waiting for system to ready." ) Sleep( 5000 ) ; this part does not work ; $SYSTEM_INDICATOR is a global variable. I have tried these values: "SystemIndicatorWindow" (Text), "Qt5QWindowIcon101" (ClassNN), and ; "[CLASS:Qt5QWindowIcon; INSTANCE:101]" Local $hStatusIndicator = ControlGetHandle( $hClient, "", $SYSTEM_INDICATOR ) HandleError( $hStatusIndicator, "CheckStatus::Error: couldn't retrieve control: " & $SYSTEM_INDICATOR, $terminateOnFail ) This is what the spy reveals: 

       
      Edit: I just tried this code and it works for notepad++.
      FileChangeDir( "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\" ); Run( "notepad++.exe" ) Local $hNotePad = WinWaitActive( "new 1 - Notepad++", "", 10 ) If $hNotePad = 0 Or $hNotePad = -1 Then MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "Error getting app handle." ) EndIf Sleep( 1000 ) Local $hNewFileBtn = ControlGetHandle( $hNotePad, "", "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:1]" ) If $hNewFileBtn = 0 Or $hNewFileBtn = -1 Then MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "Error getting button handle." ) EndIf MsgBox( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Success", "Success." )
