Button with no form of identification

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am trying to automate the pushing of a button in an application but when i use the "window info" tool to find out some info about the button, i get nothing!

Is this indicating that this isn't a button?

Any suggestions on how i can achieve the pushing of this button would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

this is what "windows info" returns to me

>>>> Window <<<<

If it's for a game, game developers like to hide the info. like button IDs, etc, etc... in attempts to make cracking harder.

No, it's not from a game. It's actually from a piece of software that monitors security cameras via a video capture card. The button i'm pushing takes a snapshot of the selected video input and saves it as a bitmap. The card i am using comes with an sdk and the company that supplied it were responsive........until i asked them why the demo app in the sdk didn't work, then i got silence ;) and have heard nothing since

Ah, next question then is, is it a skinned GUI? If so, the button may not be a control, but just an image painted on the window.

Can you get to the control using tabs? I've had to use this a lot recently because I'm automating Lotus Approach and it's buttons are the same way.
