    iGuidance 4 and AutoIt Scripts

    Now that arrow keys are disabled on the iGuidance 4 menus, it makes it more difficult to get to the windows you want using SendKey commands through the RR Skin Editor.

    I found some compiled AutoIt scripts (that were part of the Digital FX 2.0 RR skin) that were written for iGuidance 3. Some of them seem to work in iGuidance 4 for menu items that I can't seem to access by key presses. I can't explore the scripts because I don't have the source code.

    Sooooo....I was wondering if any had an example of how to do something like this with AutoIt or know what technique people are using to access the menu items.

    I know I can still get to the standard commands available through the File, Tools, and View menu with key presses. I'd like to know how to get to menu items like: Favorites, Destination (Street First), etc.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Nevermind, I figured it out.

    For anyone that's interested, you need to find the button's ID # (which you can do by using reshacker & looking in the "Dialogs" section).

    Then the code for the AutoIt script is as simple as follows (this demonstrates bringing up the Destination-->Address-->Street First screen):

    Code:
    ;Activates iGuidance
    Opt("WinSearchChildren", 1)
    WinActivate ("iGuidance")
    ;Shows main menu
    Send("{ENTER}")
    ;Presses the sequence of buttons
    ControlClick ( "", "Destination", 509 )
    ControlClick ( "", "Address", 500 )
    ControlClick ( "", "Street First", 551 )

    Autoit Window Info Tool Will Help As Well, Just Place The Cursor Over The Button You Need And The Tool Will Reveal The Button Id, Easier. A Lot Of Skins Have This Already Done, Some Even Hide Those Ugly Pop Ups With A Custom Graphic, Wait For Dfx 3.o And You Will See. I Even Have This In My Old School Skin.

    Cool, thanks for the tip.

    Reshacker was kind of a pain in the butt. I tried a different Window "Spy" type tool, but it would only reveal the control type & not the ID. I'll give the AutoIt Window tool a try.

    Autoit Window Info does a very good job on revealing the window, buttons, and other ..... properties.
