And i'm not surprised. The syntax of WinGetHandle does not look correct - check the help file.

Have a look at the return value of WinGetHandle with ControlWrite($hwnd) then check it against the AutoIt Info Tool.

ControlSend works with a control not a window. The ControlID is not required to send a control text, look at ControlGetHandle.

Get the Window or Control first then try sending text.

Sry, I'm new to AutoIt and I'm still learning. This is what I've tried but all fail me:

$hwnd = WinGetHandle("classname=ZElementClient Window")
ControlSend($hwnd, "", "", "{1}")

$hwnd = WinGetHandle("classname=Element Client")
ControlSend($hwnd, "", "", "{1}")

$hwnd = ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:ZElementClient Window]", "", "")
ControlSend($hwnd, "", "", "{1}")

ControlSend("Element Client", "", "", "{1}")

Can you give me an example of the script?

Thanks

Thats ok

Try WinGetHandle("Element Client"). I would have expected ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:ZElementClient Window]", "", "") to have worked, did you look at the return and @error values?

If there is no control info then you can do something like

WinActivate($hwnd)

Send("{1}")

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 3)
$hwnd = WinGetHandle("Element Client")
ConsoleWrite("Window handle is " & $hwnd & @CRLF)
WinActivate($hwnd) 
Send("{1}")

You need control info to send keys to a control via ControlSend. If you can get something for ClassnameNN then you can use it.

Thanks for the fast reply and help :D

By the way, if I use WinActivate then it means the game window can't be minimized while my bot is running.

ControlSend() works on windows.

For example, I can use it to send keypresses to Guild Wars if I wanted to by simply doing:

ControlSend("Guild Wars", "", "", "Testing")

So that method should work, if not, then maybe your game has some kind of protection against it.

Nope, it don't work with

ControlSend("Guild Wars", "", "", "Testing")
and this game don't have any protection

Yes and No. You can minimize your Window however Send sends to the active window so it must be active, not minimized. I have asked MVPs and Devs on the forum so I feel confident saying, there is no way known to send (using Send()) keystrokes to a inactive window. Without control info your options are limited. Yes it is possible to use ControlSend for a Window but AutoIt needs to get a handle to the window. What did the ConsoleWrite produce?

Using WinGetHandle is not required however ControlSend will use a similar technique under the hood, doing something like a DLL call to the function FindWindow to get the window information. If you can't get a handle using WinGetHandle you have little chance of getting ControlSend to work using the same params.
