Reading a check button.

7 posts in this topic

Tried to read a check button using the following but the GUICtrlRead always returns a zero. Is this the wrong approach?

jh

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Func autoLogon()

Run("c:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c control userpasswords2")

WinWait("User Accounts","")

$hWnd = WinGetHandle ("User Accounts")

Sleep(800)

$hCont = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", "Button1")

MsgBox(0, "User Accts should be open, handle = ", $hCont)

$result = GUICtrlRead($hCont)

MsgBox(0, "checkboxValue", $result)

EndFunc

Functions starting with GUI is for GUICreate and its family and not for windows created by other applications.

controlID - The control identifier (controlID) as returned by a GUICtrlCreate... function.

Have you tried to use ControlGetText instead ?

MsgBox(0, "checkboxValue", $result)

EndFunc

What I do to read a checkbox then check it if it is not already is:

If ControlCommand("Security for ROOT\CIMV2", "Allow Enable Account", "Button11", "IsChecked", "") = 0 Then
    ControlCommand("Security for ROOT\CIMV2", "Allow Enable Account", "Button11", "Check", "")
EndIf

Since your control is named "Button1", I'm assuming it's a radio button or checkbox, so this should work:

Func autoLogon()
    Run("c:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c control userpasswords2")
    WinWait("User Accounts","")
    $result = ControlCommand("User Accounts", "", "Button1", "IsChecked")
    MsgBox(0, "checkboxValue", $result)
EndFunc

:shocked:

Sorry to bother folks, was just proceeding based on a reply to an earlier post. I just tried ControlCommand and was going to say Never Mind but you guys are too smart and too quick for us old farts.

Watch how you use phrases like "us old farts" on grey-bearded penguins, Kid!
