How can i get a button inside in Panel - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I am new with autoit, I have a difficulty because I need to automate an application and it has a button inside a panel, I need to click that button.
But when using AutoIt v3 Window Info it does not give me the name of the button, it just gives me the name of the Panel.

How do I find the buttons inside the panel? Is there a command for this?
with the command:
ControlClick ("TITLE", "", "[CLASS: TFlatPanel; INSTANCE: 4]"), I'm seeing the panel and clicking it, but I can't see the button.

I don't want to use mouse position

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:


General development and scripting discussions. If it's super geeky and you don't know where to put it - it's probably here.

Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support or AutoIt Technical Discussion forums.

You can see more controls through code (sometimes). Try something like this to get the full list of controls: (I used the active window, but you could use a handle or the title instead)

#include <Array.au3>


Func GetControlNames($hWnd)
    ; An array of control names to return
    Local $aControlNames[0]
    ; Get the list of controls from the window and split into an array
    Local $aTemp = StringSplit(WinGetClassList($hWnd), @LF)
    ; The control name
    Local $sControlName
    Local $iCount
    ; For each control found
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aTemp) - 1
        $iCount = 1
            ; Build a name
            $sControlName = "[CLASS:" & $aTemp[$i] & ";INSTANCE:" & $iCount & "]"
            $iCount += 1
        ; Loop until the name isn't taken
        Until Not _ArrayContains($aControlNames, $sControlName)
        ; Add it to the array of controls
        _ArrayAdd($aControlNames, $sControlName)

    Return $aControlNames


; Checks if an item is in an array already
Func _ArrayContains($aArray, $vItem)

    For $i=0 To UBound($aArray) - 1

        If $aArray[$i] == $vItem Then Return True


    Return False
