Find or Wait for Object then Click other object

Post by Sam71 » Mon Jun 17, 2019 10:37 am

Hi Again!,

I have been playing around with Macro Scheduler again and trying out some new commands. What I want to do is creat a loop where it finds UIAutomation Name: Some text, then click an object thats further up left on the screen. Is this possible?.

Here is my attempt, its not working but hopefully it explains further what I'm trying to do.

Code: Select all

SetFocus>Web App - Mozilla Firefox
label>webapp
if
UIClick>{"Web App - Mozilla Firefox"},{"Search"}
endif

label>noresults
FindWindowWithText>No results found,0,strTitle
If>NumFound>0
UIClick>{"Web App - Mozilla Firefox"},{""}
goto>webapp

else

GetWindowHandle>Find Object Wizard,hWndParent
If>NumFound>0
FindObject>hWndParent,TTabPage,,1,hWnd,X1,Y1,X2,Y2,result
UIClick>{"Web App - Mozilla Firefox"},{"Buy Now"}
endif
endif

goto>noresults
This is how I used to do it:

Code: Select all

SetFocus>PS4 Remote Play
Label>Restart
FindImagePos>C:\Users\Documents\Tra.bmp,WINDOW:PS4 Remote Play,0.7,1,XArr,YArr,NumFound,CCOEFF
If>NumFound>0
  HoldKey>v,48,0 // Cross
  HoldKey>a,50,0 // D-Pad Left
  HoldKey>g,50,0 // Circle
  HoldKey>t,48,0 // Triangle
Endif

label>restarttwo
FindImagePos>C:\Users\Documents\NoResults.bmp,WINDOW:PS4 Remote Play,0.7,1,XArr,YArr,NumFound,CCOEFF
If>NumFound>0
  HoldKey>v,48,0 // Cross
  goto>Restart
else
Label>ResultStart
FindImagePos>C:\Users\Sam Wade\Documents\SearchResults0.bmp,WINDOW:PS4 Remote Play,0.7,1,XArr,YArr,NumFound,CCOEFF
If>NumFound>0
  goto>SearchResult
endif
endif
goto>restarttwo

Also is it possible to bind a keyboard key to an object?

Hi Marcus,

What I mean is for example, In a webpage you have buttons like submit, preview, save draft etc. I'd like to assign a shortcut key to some of these, if I press say the "S" it will save draft, if I press "T" key it will submit. I hope that clarifies it better.

@Sam71,
If you use the Object wizard to identify the object (button) you'd like to click, the next tab in Object Wizard let's you choose what action to take. If everything goes well, you will be able to choose "Left click the object" Assuming that......

You then could use OnEvent to setup a "hotkey" that will cause the object(button) to be left clicked. You can use the forum to get a list of the VK codes. If for example, you wanted it to click the button when you press 'F2' the OnEvent wold look like this.....

OnEvent>Key_Down,VK113,0,TheSubroutine
(this is one off the top of my head that I know, use the code for the key you'd like to use.)

The Subroutine is where you have the code inserted for the "action to take" with the Object Wizard. So when you press 'F2" OnEvent calls the subroutine, and the code there will click the object(button).

Ofcourse, this all relies on the buttons being objects and that the object wizard is able to identify them.

Hope this helps,

The immensity of the scope of possibilities within Macro Scheduler pushes the user beyond just macros!
