Click on tooltip balloon.

Recommended Posts


I am fairly new to Autoit, but I have found it very useful. I would like to know how to get Autoit to click on a tooltip that appears in the taskbar.

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums.

When you post here it always helps if you have had a go at solving your problems beforehand. Having some code to work on is a great help - and no-one here is too keen to help the "code it for me" brigade.

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here. Using the Search facility is also a good tip as there is a pretty good chance your question, or something like it, has been asked before. Look for the "Search" button to the right in the title bar.

This code shows you how to get AutoIt to click on one of its own TrayTips, which are windows of the tooltips_class32 type:

; Create TrayTip
TrayTip("Fred", "Test", 30)
; Wait for it to appear
While 1
    ; Look for a window of that class to appear
    If WinExists("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]", "") Then
        ; Get the position and size of the TrayTip
        $aPos = WinGetPos("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]", "")
        ; Exit the While...WEnd loop

; Move the mouse to the centre of the TrayTip and click it
MouseClick("left", $aPos[0] + ($aPos[2] / 2), $aPos[1] + ($aPos[3] / 2), 1, 50)


You may need to check the TrayTip you are interested in by using the Au3Info tool, which is in the same folder as AutoIt. It will give you the information on the specific TrayTip you are trying to click to enable you to adjust the above code.

Ask again if you have problems.
