Can I still automate a control without knowing it's ControlID?

4 posts in this topic

I can get the ClassnameNN but not the ControlID for a control I'm trying to Automate.

Can I do automation if I only have the ClassnameNN?

According to the help file you should providing the application uses standard Microsoft controls.

I think the reason I can't get the ControlID is because the app may not be using Microsoft standard controls.

Are there any other reasons why AutoIt can't report the ControlID?

That seems to be correct. I just tested AutoIt Window Info on Mozilla Firefox (which doesn't feature standard Microsoft controls) and while class names do appear, control IDs don't.
