How to select/click on tabs

Recommended Posts


I am trying to automate an application but am unable to select/click on the different tabs it has. When I use the AutoIt Window Info tool to look at each of the tabs they all show the same information (except for the coordinates):

Class SysTabControl32

Instance 1

ClassnameNN SysTabControl321

ID 12320


Position 6,7

Size 376,441

ControlClick Coords 65,10

I am able to move between the tabs by sending a right arrow (Send("{RIGHT}")) but that only works if the focus is on one of the tabs already. So it is not reliable.

I tried using the following but it does not work:

ControlClick("Toolbox","Color Settings",12320,"","",65,10)

Is there any easy way to select/click between tabs?
