Check text on other application

13 posts in this topic

Ok i want my autoit code to check a text on my other application. Now im using autoit v3 Window info and i get this info, theres a specific static field on the application that change values and i want to grab that info.

In the WIndow Info it says:

>>>> Control <<<<

Class: MozillaWindowClass

Instance: 5

ClassnameNN: MozillaWindowClass5

Advanced (Class): [CLASS:MozillaWindowClass; INSTANCE:5]

ID:

Text: Hello

Position: 0, 198

Size: 1663, 774

ControlClick Coords: 1186, 395

Style: 0x56000000

ExStyle: 0x00000000

Handle: 0x00530652

Now you can see the Text : Hello

i want to grab that because that changes, sometimes its Hello sometimes its something else. How do i do that?

And i would like to avoid the way to open up the window and use a OCR to find out that value.

Thanks in advance!
