Autoselect a matching member from a pull-down list

Recommended Posts


I'm using AutoIt purely for automation of a Windows application I'm using in order to

automate repetitive tasks. I need to be able to select AND read the contents(i.e. members)

of a pull-down list that contains 22 selections, then find a member from the list that

matches the name I need and select this name from the pull-down menu list.

Is this possible using AutoIt? i.e. I tried using the recorder to reverse engineering the

scripting code required, but it only listed the mouse movements/coordinates as I moved

down the pull-down menu to select the correct member. I want to fill out an input form,

then have the script/macro go to this pull-down list and select the member that matches

what I've entered in the input form GUI.

Thank you so much in advance.

FYI, when I say a pull-down menu/list I mean a drop-down list. Thanks.

Have you even made an attempt at reading the help file? Take a look at Functions >> Window Management >> Controls >> ControlCommand(). While you're at it read the first line in my signature.


Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.
