How to get a control text in the active window?

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I have read the help, but can't find an answer.

ControlGetText ( "title", "text", controlID )

But the controlID changed everytime my window is opened.

ClassNameNN of the control is the same one, so I want to know how to get text of such control?

And here is my problem:

I want to set this text as a condition to choose what will be sent to the window.

$text = ControlGetText("windowtitle", "", controlID )

If $text = A


ElseIf $text = B





How can I do this?

You can also do ControlGetText ( "title", "text", "ClassNameNN" ). It allows that.


WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
MsgBox(0, ControlCommand("Untitled - Notepad", "", "Edit1", "GetLineCount", ""), "", 1)

This will return the number of lines in an untitled notpad window. ClassNameNN is used rather than ControlID.

Hope that helps!

It doesn't work in my window.

But it do work in notepad:

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
MsgBox(0,"", ControlGetText("Open", "", "Button2"))

I don't know why.

Anyway, thanks.
