Control ID changes for the same control...

Recommended Posts

corrado33

I'm making my script run as a service (as you would know if you read my other thread) now, I'm using ControlClick, ControlSend etc etc... however, I launch this program, MWSnap in my case (a simple screen shot utility), and I use AutoIt window info tool to find the ControlID of the button I want to press. So I do this for my whole program, I try to run it, and it doesn't do anything... So I look at the controlID for the SAME button (the application was closed down and restarted again) and the ControlID was different!! I don't really know what to do...

TIA

Control IDs are dynamic. Use things like Text, Class or Instance to get a handle to a control.


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y. Use Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)[topic="84960"]Brett F's Learning To Script with AutoIt V3[/topic][topic="21048"]Valuater's AutoIt 1-2-3, Class... is now in Session[/topic]Contribution: [topic="87994"]Get SVN Rev Number[/topic], [topic="93527"]Control Handle under mouse[/topic], [topic="91966"]A Presentation using AutoIt[/topic], [topic="112756"]Log ConsoleWrite output in Scite[/topic]

You can use the special format of the ControlID which allows you to specify, the Class, Instance, or the CLASSNN.

Look in the AutoIT Help file under the Controls main topic.
