Return Value from Windows GUI - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm working on automating a simple task that my team does on a daily basis.  I've been able to launch the program and navigate to the location within the program that we need for reports.  The information we are looking for is always a day behind.  So ideally, my script will need to return the current date within the program, compare it to today's date with _NowDate(), and then go to the previous day.

As way of example, today is 3/7/2019.  I need to capture the date field in the program which I can use CommandClick to highlight it, but I wan to compare it to _NowDate() and go back one day to 3/6/2019 to find the report I'm looking for it.

ControlCLick("ImageCentre - Connected to:", "", "[Class:SysDateTimePick32; INSTANCE:1; ID:209]")  

Above, allows me to select the field, but I need to add the date logic.

How do I capture that Class as a value I can compare to _NowDate()?
