Cursor well positioned on a "save" file button but no left click effective

Hi,

I use Xygrib, a soft to download .grb charts of wind.

The process is fine until I have to click on the "save" the file button (on the usual Windows pop-up window to save a file) .

The "left click" on the "save" button doesn't work thought the arrow is well positioned on the "save" button.

I tried also the send key "return" (which normally functions) but without the expected result.

Any idea to help? 

Thanks

If you press the alt key, do any underlines show up on the menu…for instance, in excel, you can do Alt F O to file-> Open. So you might try send keys in that fashion, such as {Alt}(fs) for file -> save

That happens sometimes.

 

This method might work better for you. Copy the code into your designer, and add your own UI element:

UIAutomation.GetElementDetails Element: appmask['Quick Launch Bar']['File Explorer'] AttributeName: $'''Location and Size''' AttributeValue=> AttributeValue
Text.SplitText.SplitWithDelimiter Text: AttributeValue CustomDelimiter: $''', ''' IsRegEx: False Result=> TextList
MouseAndKeyboard.SendMouseClick.ClickAt ClickType: MouseAndKeyboard.MouseClickType.LeftClick MillisecondsDelay: 0 X: TextList[0] + TextList[2] / 2 Y: TextList[1] + TextList[3] / 2 RelativeTo: MouseAndKeyboard.PositionRelativeTo.Screen MovementStyle: MouseAndKeyboard.MovementStyle.Instant

Thanks for your answer but not being a “geek”, I wonder what is the “designer” you mentioned in your answer.

Two other questions :

  • I am the administrator of my computer. Even if I launch Powerautomat with a right click to launch it as admin, I am still displayed on the task manager as a “user” instead of “administrator”.

I need to be admin as I am using 7-zip and the app denies me the right to extract the files to a directory.

How can I proceed?

  • For send-key : I see various way to do this :{control}, {controlkey}. What is the difference between these two ways? I need to simulate the “enter” key.

 

Thanks for your help.

Bye
