You may not be able to automate them using the "default" options like ClickItem or ClickCell or things like that. However, you can still interact with them using native methods and basic "Keys" and "Click" methods. You may need to write custom code for you to be able to simulate those items.

I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
