Auto scroll watchlist in Amibroker - (Moved)


Go to solution Solved by Luke94,

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I want AutoIt to scroll through the specified watchlist having stock names in it continuously in technical analysis software Amibroker.    

A utility to auto scroll the charts in the watchlist of Amibroker say every 10-15sec (stopping at each chart for 2sec) so that no need to manually go through each chart. Have no idea about coding so request your help make this utility.

If you're not familiar with it - check out the AutoIt Window Information Tool.

Post back the Control Information for all of the controls you can find in the area you've highlighted.

Edit: Just post screenshots of the AutoIt Window Information Tool (Control tab) for each control.

Did you use the Finder Tool on the actual list? I would assume it's a ListView. (SysListView32)

Those screenshots are of the column headers.

Use the Finder Tool on some text within the list - Try the scrollbars as well.

You can paste the screenshot directly into your reply, rather than uploading as a document.

I'm not able to test this but give it a try:

#include <GuiListView.au3>

Global $g_hWnd
Global $g_hListView
Global $g_iCount
Global $g_iIndex

$g_hWnd = WinGetHandle('AmiBroker') ; Get AmiBroker window handle
If IsHWnd($g_hWnd) = 1 Then ; Check the window handle is valid
    If WinActive($g_hWnd) = 0 Then ; Check if AmiBroker is NOT active
        WinActivate($g_hWnd) ; If it's NOT active, activate it
        WinWaitActive($g_hWnd, '', 5) ; Wait for the handle to become active
    EndIf
    While 1 ; Loop forever
        $g_hListView = ControlGetHandle($g_hWnd, '', '[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:5]') ; Get the ListView handle
        $g_iCount = (_GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($g_hListView) - 1) ; Get the number of items in the ListView
        $g_iIndex = 0
        Do
            _GUICtrlListView_EnsureVisible($g_hListView, $g_iIndex) ; Scrolls the ListView to the given index - which we're increasing by one below
            $g_iIndex += 1
            Sleep(2000) ; Wait 2000ms (2 seconds)
        Until $g_iIndex > $g_iCount ; Loop until we've reached the end of the ListView
        _GUICtrlListView_EnsureVisible($g_hListView, 0) ; Once we've reached the end of the ListView above, move back to the top of the ListView
        Sleep(15000) ; Wait 15000ms (15 seconds) - once we've waited, the While loop will restart
    WEnd
EndIf

I assume the two screenshots you've sent are different ListViews on different tabs? In that case, the above will only work (if it does) on the currently selected tab. If it does work, we can look into changing the tab periodically. Any errors, post them back. ☺️

Try this - it should double click each item.

#include <GuiListView.au3>

Global $g_hWnd
Global $g_hListView
Global $g_iCount
Global $g_iIndex

$g_hWnd = WinGetHandle('AmiBroker') ; Get AmiBroker window handle
If IsHWnd($g_hWnd) = 1 Then ; Check the window handle is valid
    If WinActive($g_hWnd) = 0 Then ; Check if AmiBroker is NOT active
        WinActivate($g_hWnd) ; If it's NOT active, activate it
        WinWaitActive($g_hWnd, '', 5) ; Wait for the handle to become active
    EndIf
    While 1 ; Loop forever
        $g_hListView = ControlGetHandle($g_hWnd, '', '[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:5]') ; Get the ListView handle
        $g_iCount = (_GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($g_hListView) - 1) ; Get the number of items in the ListView
        $g_iIndex = 0
        Do
            _GUICtrlListView_EnsureVisible($g_hListView, $g_iIndex) ; Scrolls the ListView to the given index - which we're increasing by one below
            _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($g_hListView, $g_iIndex, 'Left', False, 2, 0) ; Double click the ListView Item
            $g_iIndex += 1
            Sleep(2000) ; Wait 2000ms (2 seconds)
        Until $g_iIndex > $g_iCount ; Loop until we've reached the end of the ListView
        _GUICtrlListView_EnsureVisible($g_hListView, 0) ; Once we've reached the end of the ListView above, move back to the top of the ListView
        Sleep(15000) ; Wait 15000ms (15 seconds) - once we've waited, the While loop will restart
    WEnd
EndIf

Thanks. Its working fine when Amibroker is in front but when i open another window say chrome and Amibroker is in background then it scrolls but doesn't click the stock.  

Is it possible to click/select the charts/stock even when Amibroker is in background.

Not that I'm aware of. Someone else may be able to help with that though.

Luke,

One query....this script is using mouse click function to select the stock. Can this also be done by using arrow key function, as next stock can be selected by arrow keys also. Asking as this might then work in background.

See if this works in the background first.
