Could I get help with controlclick syntax?

Recommended Posts


I am trying to get controlclick to click the 4th tab on a menu. I have an ID 12320 and control click coords of 194,13

I am having a hard time getting them into the correct syntax for autoit. here is what I have tried..

;ControlClick("Microsoft Exchange Server", "", "194, 9")

;ControlClick("[class:12320; instance:4]"


The help file shows this ControlClick ( "title", "text", controlID [, button [, clicks [, x [, y ]]]] )

Does that mean i repalce the text "controlID" with the actual control ID # 12320 or do I use the text "controlID:1230"?

Welcome to the forum.

You cannot skip parameters:

ControlClick("Microsoft Exchange Server", "", "194, 9")

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

You skipped the ones that I marked in red to get to the coordinates.

If you copy/paste/post the contents of the AutoIt Window Info tool's control tab - I'm sure that someone will stop by and help you formulate the correct syntax for your control click. You can also check the return from controlclick via a consolewrite or msgbox to see if AutoIt found the Control as you specified it.
