Click on button Windows Form Using .Net

Go to solution


I'm new to LabVIEW and this is my first time, working with the .net functions in labview. What I'm trying to do is to perform a click on a button that is on the Windows form application. 

I was able to load the application and pass data to some fields of the windows form application but I'm struggling trying to perform a click on the windows form using labview. I'm sure the approach i have it's probably not the best and it does need a lot of work, but so far it works the way i want so that's enough for me, any suggestion as how to perform the click please. Thanks a lot.


Below is the code i have so far, the control with the index number 6 is the button that i need to perform the click on.

You can use the .NET UI Automation functions.


UI Automation is intended to automate UI interaction for .NET, so exactly what you're looking for. It might not be easy though. You might need to spend a significant amount of time in making a library, because doing this 'ad hoc' will definitely create a mess.



UI Spy (obsolete), Inspect.exe (obsolete) or the successor accessibility insights (haven't tried it) use the same techniques. So you can use those to examine the 'automation tree' structure interactively, and than build only the branch you need in LabVIEW.
