Try to set addressbooks in Outlook (ComboBox or ListBox and what number?)

2 posts in this topic

Hi

I'm trying to set which addressbook has to be shown first in Outlook 2007.

When checking with "Au3info.exe" I don't really get if this is a Combo Box or ListBox and which ID it has to set this.

And it just does not take over the settings I'm trying to make. I want to show the "ADDRESSBOOK" to "show this address list first". And then "keep personal addresses in: "Contacts". The Window is called Addressing.

This is the code in Autoit:

;Set show address list first

ControlCommand($Titles[$Addressing],"","[CLASS:REComboBox20W:651]","SetCurrentSelection","ADDRESSBOOK")

ControlCommand($Titles[$Addressing],"","[CLASS:REComboBox20W:652]","SetCurrentSelection",$Contacts)

CloseWindow($Titles[$Addressing])

WinClose($Titles[$ABStemcor],"")

But it does not take effect, it just closes the window.

I didnt see any examples of how to choose from a ComboBox or List Box.

Do I have to make a ControlSend as well?

If you need, I can send more details from the code.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I tried activate window with handle.

; Change into the WinTitleMatchMode that supports classnames and handles

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

; Get the handle of a notepad window that contains "this one"

$handle = WinGetHandle("classname=#32770", "")

then tried to access the combo box with window title

WinActivate ( "Choose Profile", "")

ControlSetText("Choose Profile", "", "REComboBox20W1", "test")

The above code worked for me.

When i was trying to access the combo box using same window access method it was not working.
