How to fin object reference in powerpoint addin?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I am trying to automate some tasks in a powerpoint addin named office timeline. It's free to install and use in basic mode if you want to try (https://www.officetimeline.com/).

I managed to open it from autoit with keyboard shortcuts but once opened I dont know which objects I can use to interact with it as the Window info gives me no control:
 

>>>> Window <<<<
Title:    Office Timeline
Class:    HwndWrapper[Otl.Addin.vsto|vstolocal;VSTA_Main;94563982-e478-4c06-b35a-f2be728f72cc]
Position:    29, 64
Size:    1220, 640
Style:    0x16080000
ExStyle:    0x00080000
Handle:    0x0002066E

>>>> Control <<<<
Class:    
Instance:    
ClassnameNN:    
Name:    
Advanced (Class):    
ID:    
Text:    
Position:    
Size:    
ControlClick Coords:    
Style:    
ExStyle:    
Handle:    

>>>> Mouse <<<<
Position:    1037, 651
Cursor ID:    0
Color:    0xF1F1F1

>>>> StatusBar <<<<

>>>> ToolsBar <<<<

>>>> Visible Text <<<<


>>>> Hidden Text <<<<

Example addin window here: 6NPl0ME.png

 

I suspect the objects exist anyway (new, import, recent file 1, 2...) , how do I find them?

I could use mouseclicks for some features but I'd rather have more robust code.

 

Thanks
