AutoIt Window Spy can't read controls

10 posts in this topic

Can someone tell me why the window spy cannot identify the controls in the Print dialogue.

Here's what I did:

Open MS Word document..

Hit Ctrl + P to show the Print Dialog

Hover the mouse over this Dialog, notice that AutoIt Window Spy does not identify

any of the controls.

I feel bad, because I can't act directly to the controls in my script, and I am forced to use MouseClick() which requires the dialog to be active..

please help me.. thanks in advance..

Hi,

If you are using Word, why not record or program an Macro for it ?

What about Windows without using AutoIt ?It would be the same as driving a car without an steering Wheel!

Maybe this would help me when using MSWord, but my problem is when I am using application that doesn't have macro recording capability.

I am doing a script that will automate my Printer Application Testing.

thanks for the reply though, anymore suggestions please..

The problem with office is that it uses "picture controls", therefore most controls cannot be accessed.


Who else would I be?

Can you recommend alternatives on dealing this?

Hope this feature be supported in the near future of AutoIt...

The only autoit way is to use send to access the info you need.
