Issue with ControlSend

5 posts in this topic

I'm having issues with the ControlSend function.

I'm trying to start up the Cisco VPN client automatically. I can pass it through just keystrokes with the Send() function just fine. But I'd like to use ControlSend because occasionally it borks out on me using just Send().

From the AutoIt v3 Active Window info window. I see when on the control edit box I want.

>>>>>>>>>>>> Window Details <<<<<<<<<<<<<
Title:  VPN Client  |  User Authentication for <xxxxxxxx(took this out)>
Class:  QWidget
Size:   X: 582  Y: 479  W: 481  H: 243

>>>>>>>>>>> Mouse Details <<<<<<<<<<<
Screen: X: 979  Y: 614
Cursor ID:  5

>>>>>>>>>>> Pixel Color Under Mouse <<<<<<<<<<<
RGB:    Hex: 0x000072   Dec: 114

>>>>>>>>>>> Control Under Mouse <<<<<<<<<<<
Size:       X: 372  Y: 99   W: 91   H: 20
Control ID: 
ClassNameNN:    QWidget8
Text:       username

My ControlSend looks like:

ControlSend($connWin,"","QWidget8",$vpnUserId)

$connWin is equal to the window title, which I know works because I've used it with a WinActive already. It also works when I use a WinActivate()

$vpnUserId is equal to the user id I want to use. It works when just using a Send()

However when I use the above, it just inserts the value in $vpnUserId into the edit box with focus instead of finding the correct control item. I've also tried passing in "username" instead of QWidget8. But that has the same issues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

doesn't work for me, too. But it isn't that bad.

I use something like,...

;Opt("WinTextMatchMode", 4) ; too shorten the title
Dim $code[2] = ['', "8a2510"]
Run("C:\Programme\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\vpngui.exe -sc", "", @SW_HIDE)
If WinActivate('VPN Client  |  User Authentication for "GAD via Router-Manuell"',"") Then
Send($code[1]&"{Tab}{Enter}")
EndIf

So long,

Mega

I'd gotten it working with SEND also. Was just hoping that I could get something more elegant up and running.

Either way, if someone else had issues with ControlSend on that app, it must not work.

Would be curious if anyone knows why it does not work still through.

Thanks for the confirmation,

Try a ControlFocus right before your ControlSend line.

I've used ControlFocus/ControlSend with that app for quite some time now.

Edit: now that I've had a chance to look at my code for this app, I don't send to the Username...

ControlFocus and ControlSend both report success (or failure if the control is not present)... they just do not work (as you found and JS explained).

It may be because of the Widgets not being a standard Windows API. That would be my assumption for the troubles. Widgets is another API for creating windows and controls.
