Keywords: cClickButton cPostMessage
When I close the font window the fontwnd=dllwhnd statement tries to execute and fails since the window has gone away.
Although the method used in cClickButton is the recommended procedure, we have found that indeed it hangs in certain places.
With SendMessage, a message is sent and the program waits for a response for each message.
With Postmessage it does not wait for a response, so if some program is not responding....it does not stop.
The two situations where I have noticed this behaviour so far are the Add button on the 'Network' configuration dialog that brings up the 'Select Network Component type' dialog. and the chdir button on ws_ftp32. Both of these examples running on windows 95.
I would like to see cClickbutton returning normally after clicking the buttons. I might be able to use SendKeys to get around this temporarily, but I would not be a workable long-term solution.
A piece of what I was working on is below. I get stalled out at the "XXXX".

AddExtender("wwctl34I.dll") ;Open the Network Control Panel Run("rundll32.exe", "shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL netcpl.cpl") ;Get a handle to the Network Control Panel stitle="Network" hNetworkCP=DllHwnd(stitle) ;Get a handle to the Configuration Tab hwConfiguration= cWndByName(hNetworkCP,"Configuration") ;Click the Add button hbAdd=cWndByName(hwConfiguration, "Add...") cPostMessage(hbAdd,245,0,0) ; 245 == BM_CLICKED message("hello", "there")The problem is that if you try to do *anything* to the dialog (Select Network Component Type), I keep getting the window not found error.
I've used every function I can think of and I CANNOT get a handle to this window.
When I use the next two lines to choose the window (Select Network Component Type) that comes up
>sTitle="Select" >hAddWindow=DLLHwnd(sTitle)I don't think the above two lines work because the Message always pops up 0 for the handle when I try to display the handle in a message statement:
>Message(hAddWindow,"Test")Finally, this line then *ALWAYS* gives an error saying "parent window does not exist" which makes me think that DLLHwnd is not returning a valid handle on the statement:
>hlbMCMN=cWndByID(hAddWindow, 504)Help! I need a handle.
TimeDelay(3) xxx=WinGetActive() hAddWindow=DLLHwnd(xxx)A note regarding tabbed dialogs:
You MUST select the tab before going after the control in question. The trick is that Windows does not even bring the controls into existence until the tab is clicked.
So use the ummm cSetTabItem function to select the tab, do a small TimeDelay, then go after the control.
If WinExistChild("Microsoft Outlook 97 Setup", "Product ID:") ParentWnd=DllHwnd("Microsoft Outlook 97 Setup") ChildWnd=CwndbyID(ParentWnd,0) OKBUtton=CwndbyID(Childwnd,1) TimeDelay(3) cClickButton(OKButton) ;cPostMessage(OKButton,245,0,0) Endif
