Can Autoit3 script monitor a button press?

Recommended Posts


I am trying to create a script that monitors a button press on the GUI window.

For an example.

Let's say I have a GUI window called "Calculator", and it has a button called "Button42".

When user press that button "Button42", I want the script to be aware of that event took place and take action accordingly.

Is this possible?

Thank you in advance.

Look at _IsPressed in the help file


erk... answered before I really read the post.... nevermind

To answer your actual question, no I do not think you can detect that in another application... unless you do something odd like using PixelGetColor to look for color changes on the button as it is pressed (if the button does change color in some way)

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]
