Switching Tabs On File Properties

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello. I need to switch Compatibility tab on file properties on Windows as automated, the coordinates and tab order are not constant, so i cant use mouse or keyboard. Can use such a function like _GUICtrlTab_ActivateTab or other solution?

#include <GuiTab.au3>
$Window = "Backup Properties"
$searchTAB = "Compatibility"

$hWnd = ControlGetHandle ( $Window,"",'[CLASS:SysTabControl32; INSTANCE:1]' )
For $i = 0 To _GUICtrlTab_GetItemCount ( $hWnd ) - 1
$txt = _GUICtrlTab_GetItemText ( $hWnd,$i )
If $txt = $searchTAB Then _GUICtrlTab_SetCurSel ( $hWnd, $i)
Next

something like this?

Why not just alter the registry and forget about manipulating the GUI, all the GUI does is shortcut the registry entries.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

@BrewManNH The user must do rest of settings, i just need to activate Compatibility tab.

@Aelc Thanks but not working. I've checked ControlGetHandle, it returns the handle and @error is 0. _GUICtrlTab_GetItemCount() returns correct number of tab count. But when I try to see what _GUICtrlTab_GetItemText() returns, there are only weird characters. My OS is in Turkish language which mostly uses Latin Characters, what's the problem?

You need to run it x64, and you may also need to use #RequireAdmin.  Add this line at beginning of script :

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y

Should work now...
