[Solved] AutoIt Window Info tool -> "Highlight Controls" MenuItem


Recommended Posts

Hi all


I am using AutoIt Window Info tool quite often,
and there's something I wonder about, since the first days of using AutoIt.

When I drag the ViewFinder icon, from the AutoIt Window Info tool, to another window,
then the target window/control is Highlighted
(when the Target Window has standard controls, and not some specially drawn controls).

So far so good.


The problem is, that this Highlghting happens when the MenuItem in Menu: Options\Highlight Controls is Off,
and If I select it, then the behavior does not change..

So in any case (Off or On), you get the controls highlighted.

So is this a tiny bug - inwhich this MenuItem's state is ignored by the code?
Or is it me missing something here?

No there is no bug.  You need to think with a wider scope.  There is a reason why this option exists. Try mixing different options and you will find the usage of this particular one.

Hmm

Freeze=Off + Highlight Controls=On
(and to make Freeze=Off express itself, we have to move the Focus away from the Window Info tool to any other window,
by clicking some other window, or else Freeze=Off will not be expressed)

Thanks..


BTW to make this easier for others, consider naming the MenuItem as "Highlight Controls even when Freeze=Off"
or something with this meaning)
