ArcMap comands

03 Nov 2017, 08:51


I'm working in ArcMap 10.5 and would like to run some autokeys.
ArcMap has several "windows" inside. One of them is Table of Contents.
Inside there are layers.
I need to do following:
1. Select one layer inside TOC window inside ArcMap(I would do that manually)
2. Right click
3. Send E, Send E, Send {right}, Send S
4. Right click
5. Send S, Send M

Problem is I can't get this commands to work and I think problem is in identifying right window.
First set of commands under 2 and 3 are shown in video below at 42 second of video:

When I click random layer WinSpy say:
ahk_exe ArcMap.exe
ClassNN: SysTreeView325
Text: Tree1

All I have so far is:

Code: Select all

SetTitleMatchMode 2
#IfWinActive ArcMap
click, right
Send, S
Send, M
Click, Right
Send, E
Send, E
Send {Right}
Send, S
What am I doing wrong? Thnx in advance.

Hi there, I have been making all sorts of commands for ArcMap for a while now. Something similar to what you desire (to begin editing a layer) I have set up like this:

#IfWinActive, ahk_exe ArcMap.exe
^RButton:: ;Begin Editing layer when selected in TOC
Click, Right
Send, {e 2}
Send, {Right} {Enter}

Hold down control and right-click the layer to begin editing.

I find the most reliable way to send clicks with ArcMap is by using the FindText application that another user developed and you can find it on the boards.
