Read Button Text from an external Program

Recommended Posts



I want to write a program to automate Exact Audio Copy.

Therefore I need to know, when EAC is finished.

The only difference between "working" and "finished" is

the Button text: "OK" or "Abbruch".

Now - how can I read the Button text of this Program?

With Au3Info I get the Informations about the Button:

But I don't know how to use the informations.

This e.g doesn't work (0x00080160 is the handle of the Button)

$temp = GUICtrlRead(0x00080160)

MsgBox(0,"Button text",$temp)

Can anybody help me?

Many thanks and a nice christmas!
