This functions attempts to read the first standard status bar on a window (Microsoft common control: msctls_statusbar32). Some programs use their own status bars or special versions of the MS common control which StatusbarGetText() cannot read. For example, StatusbarGetText does not work on the program TextPad; however, the first region of TextPad's status bar can be read using ControlGetText("TextPad", "", "HSStatusBar1")
StatusbarGetText() can work on windows that are minimized or even hidden.
