UIAWrappers select combobox using automation id

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm using UIAWrappers  to make a script to select combobox inside a window. The app is made using WindowsForms10

and the ProcessIdPropertyId changes every time i restart the app. while CLASS name is same for all combobox 

The only permanent field that I can use is $UIA_AutomationIdPropertyId. is there any way/example to use this in _UIA_action

 

 

Thanks

Sorry @dranzer006.
I am more familiar with UIASpy tool.
Could you please download it and post the UI Tree?
Otherwise, I am not of much help here (sorry again!) :)

Here, I tried multiple ways (invoke, setfocus, click) however they don't select list box items directly . 

the only working solution I got was sending keyboard arrow keys directly to select, is there a better way to do this ?

 

 

Thanks

Well, from here you could try to get the handle of the ComboBox with ControlGetHandle(), using the $UIA_AutomationIdPropertyId as the "NAME" (The internal .NET Framework WinForms name) of the control;
otherwise, since the control supports theItemContainerPatter, maybee you can select the item with ItemContainerPattern.FindItem and select it from there :)

Thanks for the help can you give an example ? 

on older versions I used ControlCommand with selectstring, However its not supported in new .net apps

You should be able to see the ComboBox handle, and from there, we can operate in different ways:

P.S.: you need to adapt the code to find the missing controls :)

Note that the SelectionItemPattern is supported by the ComboBox control. The SelectionItemPattern is the correct way to handle selections. It's demonstrated in Example 11 of this post.

As the ComboBox supports the SelectionItemPattern, there is a good chance that the list items are also supported. Then check the properties of the listitems.
