ControlClick not clicking in mspaint >.<

Recommended Posts

trying to get controlsend to send a mouseclick to something like mspaint.... in theory the click would leave a single black pixel no dice though... any ideas?

#include <Array.au3>
#include <misc.au3>

Global $MsPaint2[3][3]

#cs

    WinActivate ( "untitled - Paint" )

    ControlClick ("untitled - Paint", '', '' , 'left' , 1, 200 , 200)
    ControlClick ($MsPaint2[1][1], "", "" , 'left' , 2 , 200 , 201)
    ControlClick ($MsPaint2[1][1], "", "" , 'left' , 1 , 200 , 202)

ControlClick ( "title", "text", controlID [, button [, clicks [, x [, y ]]]] )

And look at what you did:

ControlClick ("untitled - Paint", '', '' , 'left' , 1, 200 , 200)

I put the Autoit window info in the comments that shows the controlID as blank? this same logic works for controlsend - so basicly controlclick req a controlID and if it doesn't have one then its sol?

this is the window info output for mspaint... can u tell me what the controlID should be? O.o

yah for sanity sake i checked my other scripts....

this is working perfectly - program its sneding into doesn't have a controlid either

ControlSend ($WoWClient2[1][1],"","","{s Down}")
ControlSend ($WoWClient3[1][1],"","","{q Down}")
ControlSend ($WoWClient4[1][1],"","","{e Down}")

can't find much of any examples on the forums either think i may just have to focus each window :D

oh well...

The other thing I noticed is that you wrote "untitled" instead of "Untitled" (My Os isn't in english so I wasn't sure). Replace "untitled - Paint" with "[Class:MSPaintApp]" in all of them. This works for me:

Run("mspaint.exe", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
;~ sleep(1000)
;~ $MsPaint2 = WinList ("[Class:MSPaintApp]" )
;~ sleep(1000)
$pos = MouseGetPos()
ConsoleWrite( "left mouse click... Mouse x,y: " & $pos[0] & "," & $pos[1] & @CRLF)
WinActivate ( "[Class:MSPaintApp]"  )
ControlClick ("[Class:MSPaintApp]" , '', '[ClassNN:Afx:1000000:81]' , 'left' , 1, 200 , 200)
ControlClick ("[Class:MSPaintApp]", "", '[ClassNN:Afx:1000000:81]' , 'left' , 2 , 200 , 201)
ControlClick ("[Class:MSPaintApp]", "", '[ClassNN:Afx:1000000:81]' , 'left' , 1 , 200 , 202)

Afx:1000000:81 is what my window info tool tells me to be the ClassnameNN of the control... hope it works for you too.

This used to be easier with older Windows versions...
