Windows check box

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, Does anyone know the command(s) to check mark a button in windows XP Pro.

thanks !!!

Use the AutoIt Viewer to get the control ID

then read about ControlFocus ( "title", "text", controlID )

Send("{Space}") should do it from there.

Sorry to raise a old post, but that will invert the checkbox on each run. Is there anyway to determine which ones are checked and which ones are unchecked? I'm working on a program for our shop trying to automate the installation, updates, and scanning of various anti-malware tools we use. IEPrivacy Keeper is the one I need this for. Thanks in Advance!

Look for IsChecked in the help file.

ControlCommand() with the "IsChecked" command option, to be more specific. The function can set the desired state with the "Check" and "UnCheck" options.
