How to Right Click Icon in Taskbar and use Menu?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to automate closing a program that has no other option than to right click on the systray icon, and click on "Shutdown". Currently, I am using the following code, but it requires that the desktop be unlocked which is a problem because of the screensaver locking for security purposes.

#include "SysTray_UDF.au3"

$process="AmicusServer.exe"
$pos=_SysTrayIconPos(_SysTrayIconIndex($process))
MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1])
MouseClick("Right")
Send("{DOWN}")
Send(@crlf)

Is there anyway to automate this so that it can happen without the mouse movements and keyboard strokes?

Also, is there anyway to get a list of actions from the menus that appear when you right click on the systray icons?

Would ProcessKill work or do you need to have it shutdown itself?

Unfortunately, killing the process leaves the db in a state that requires it to reindex itself on the next startup.
