Improved support for tk widgets

Reported by: SlackerAl Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: tk widget Cc:


After searching the forum, googling and posting it seems fair to say there is a problem using ControlClick on tk widgets (I found several other similar and unresolved queries). In my test it appeared to be activating the mouse-over event rather than the click event. An example application built with tk widgets can be downloaded from

Au3Info_x64.exe appears to identify the controls correctly. (better than simplespy).

I never had any success with it, I did manage to highlight the correct widget, but did not have any success activating it from AutoIt: I think I got as far as being able to trip the widget mouseover event, but that was it.

In the end it wasn't worth it for the time I was spending on it. I didn't reply because of the final line of "But seems atk and spi interfaces which are hard to reach when using windows. Tools fot tkwidgets you probably have to write in python", pretty much summed up where I got to.
