What applications DOES controlClick work with?

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to get controlClick to work in a web browser, to even just controlSend, but neither are working for me. I've tried IE, FireFox, Google Chrome and OffByOne. How can I tell what applications these will work for?

"Note: AutoIt only works with standard Microsoft controls - some applications write their own custom controls which may look like a standard MS control but may resist automation. "

I have always used these for message box type windows, such as when IE errors out and I need to click close. To automate a browser look at the _IE functions in the help file.

The 'AutoIt Window Information Tool' will help you there, if that tool can get ControlID's, so can AutoIt... :P

It is included with AutoIt.

As far as clicking inside a browser, look at the IE UDF... Under _IE in the help file. :unsure:

Happy coding. :D

Thank you both. Much appreciated!

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but can these _IE commands be executed on a minimized/hidden IE window?

Yes they can.
