AutoIT Info does not see all controlls in windows Vista

Reported by: Lang Owned by:

Using the following code to get to the window in question, you will find that auto IT can not see any or a least most of the controls on some windows in Vista. Note: Your wireless adaptor is assumed to be nammed 'Wireless'. You can either change the name I used or change your adaptor's name. I am attaching the code as well as the information the AutoIT info viewer reports. The mouse was over the control I wish to use, but it does not appear in the info text.

To open this window manually (in case my script doesn't work for you:
Open Network properties:
Right click on wireless network adapter
Select: Connect/Disconnect
In New window - Connect to a network: Select Open and Network sharing center

It is on this window that I wish to select "Manage wireless Networks"
I Have attached what my info box displays with the mouse over this control.

Also of note: The window launched by this control has the same issues, but these issues are worse from my perspective since I can't tell when certain controls like remove are present and I can;t seem to get a list of network profiles I have set up.

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

Much like #158, you are trying to interact with a non-standard control. It is comes as no surprise to me that there are elements in Vista you can't see because they are not built using the basic control types we support. This does not mean it is a bug. As mentioned in #158, you should be posting Support questions on the forum. This, too, is no bug and is being resolved as such.

Guidelines for posting comments:
