ControlGetText and ControlSetText

Recommended Posts


I am working on a small script to populate settings for a recording system, I can receive the text that is in the Edit boxes of the screen but ControlSetText or ControlSend do not do anything yet the ControlSend returns 1.


>>>> Window <<<<

Title: Global Settings Setup

Class: WindowsForms10.window.8.app.0.378734a

Position: -3, -3

Size: 416, 500

Style: 0x17C80000

ExStyle: 0x00050100

Handle: 0x0015051E

>>>> Control <<<<

Class: Edit

Instance: 1

ClassnameNN: Edit1

Advanced (Class): [CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]

ID: 1001


Position: 152, 28

Size: 222, 15

ControlClick Coords: 171, 4

Style: 0x50000380

ExStyle: 0x00000000

>>>> Mouse <<<<

Position: 323, 52

Cursor ID: 15

Color: 0xFFFFFF

>>>> StatusBar <<<<

WinWaitActive("Global Settings Setup")
WinActivate("Global Settings Setup")
$var = ControlGetText("Global Settings Setup", "", "Edit1")
ConsoleWrite($var & @CRLF)
$var2 = ControlGetText("Global Settings Setup", "", "Edit2")
ConsoleWrite($var2 & @CRLF)
ControlSend("Global Settings Setup", "", "Edit1",$IP & "\JAVS",1)
ControlSend("Global Settings Setup", "", "Edit2",$IP,1)

Both of the GetText commands return the values that are originally there.

I'm not sure I can help but wanted you to try another test. Controlsend is just a glorified send..right?

Try doing a controlfocus or controlclick then just do a normal send.

Help says that controlsend is unreliable for command prompts, perhaps this control is another one that is proving unreliable...?

Thanks, but the send does not do anything either. But I can do a ControlGetText with no problem to that control.

It was UAC that was causing the issue, disabled it through the registry.
