Can't get text from a window

Recommended Posts


Im trying to use this program and I need to get some information of it.

Specifically, the information displayed in the status bar at the bottom and the "xxx" colors, below the update button.

I tried reading it with the autoit window info, without succes it doesn't show it neither visible or hiden.

Any help?

Thanks in advance!

AutoIt uses the standard Windows APIs. Some GUIs or controls are drawn by other custom software libraries (owner-drawn) and AutoIt can't know how to deal with them.

You could see if the custom GUI responds to ordinary keyboard shortcut conventions, like ^a to select all, and ^c to copy.
