ControlGetHandle not working propably

3 posts in this topic

Hello everybody,

I do have a serious problem in getting the handle of a control.

Im using Windows VISTA and AutoIt3.

It seems that my script does get a handle of a certain control.

But each time I want to work with that handle my script crashes within this function.

So in fact I'm not able to work with this handle.

Here is my code snippet.

$hCtrl2 = ControlGetHandle($hCtrl1, "Test", "") ;control of SQL Server instance edit field

If IsHWnd($hCtrl2) Then

MsgBox(4096, "", "It's a valid HWND")

Else

MsgBox(4096, "", "It's not an HWND")

EndIf

MsgBox(4096, "", $hCtrl2)

ControlFocus($hCtrl2)

MsgBox(4096, "", "After") ; this line is not executed any more, the script crashes before.

What is wrong? The autoIt info Window shows all properties of that certain control in a fine manner.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks Thomas

Looks like it should be

ControlGetHandle("Test","",$hCtrl1)

What is $hCtrl1?


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

You are providing the control handle where the Window title (or Window handle) belongs in the parameters for ControlFocus(). Look at ControlFocus parameters in the help file.

:P
