Reading tooltips on customized control

Recommended Posts


I am writing a test script to read the tooltip of a customized control on a GUI application. I have tired to use WinList("[class:tooltips_class32]") method to read but with no success. The I tried to Winlist("[class:Afx1d70000:8]") as given from Window Info. The window is detected but no string return from the WinGetTitle() or WinGetText(). I have also tried to use _WinAPI_EnumWindows() also no return on Title and Text.

Should I use Tesseract.au3 to OCR it out?

Note: I don't have access to the application as it's not written by me.

Note: I also notice the tooltip's [Class] and [Handle] keeps on changing.

WinInfo of tooltip:
