"ControlClick" should do that and AutoIt Window Info tool for the parameters.

From the helpfile:


Sends a mouse click command to a given control.

ControlClick ( "title", "text", controlID [, button][, clicks]] )

Here is the Script:-


$var = FileOpenDialog("Choose a Picture", "C:Temp", "Images (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 1 + 4)


Func _Uploadpicture($sPath)

$oIE = _IECreate ("www.imageshack.us")

$hwnd = _IEPropertyGet ($oIE, "hwnd")

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, 0)

$oFile = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "fileupload")


ControlSend($hwnd, "", "Internet Explorer_Server1", $sPath)

_IEFormSubmit ($oForm)

EndFunc ;==>_Uploadpicture

Now My Steps:-

1. Open file dialog box

2. Select a file

3. Insert the selected file path in web page file control

4. click on submit

I have issue with Step2. "Select a file"

Right now I am selecting a file manually. But I want to select it automatically.

Issue: Help me to automate this.

What do you mean by "But I want to select it automatically"?

If you know what file you want already, why bother with the FileOpenDialog?

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
