Get the status of the Menu(Checked or Unchecked)

Recommended Posts


Can I need to get the status of the Menu whether is checked or not using the AutoIt tool.

Is this a menu in a autoit script, or a menu from a different program?

If it's in autoit you could do something like:

If GuiCtrlGetState($menuItem) = $GUI_CHECKED then Msgbox(0, '', 'This menu is checked')

Look at the next post!

EDIT: I just messed around with the autoit tool but I don't think you can find it that way...

If GuiCtrlGetState($menuItem) = $GUI_CHECKED then Msgbox(0, '', 'This menu is checked')

The menu items must be checked with GuiCtrlRead() = 65, 68...

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$Gui = GuiCreate("Test")

$Menu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Test Menu")
$MenuItem = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Menu Item", $Menu)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, 1)

$Check = GUICtrlCreateButton("Check Item", 20, 40)


While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case -3
        Case $Check
            If GUICtrlRead($MenuItem) = 65 Then
                MsgBox(64, "", "Item is Checked")
            ElseIf GUICtrlRead($MenuItem) = 68 Then
                MsgBox(64, "", "Item is NOT Checked")

The menu item is designed in the VB application

We are using autoit for testing whether the check menu item is checked or unchecked

Can we use the control id's which are identified by the AutoIt Window Info in the function "GUICtrlRead" to identify the check box.

Our application is developed in onsite & we are using AutoIt in offshore to test the application
