WinGetText not working

Recommended Posts


I want to see the text of a control.

But Au3Info didn´t show any text for the control so ControlGetText won´t work.

Au3Info shows the text in its visible text section but when i use WinGetText it returns nothing.

it doesnt work with AutoItSetOption("WinDetectHiddenText", 1) , either.

So when Au3Info is able to see the text .. i would like to know how.

Thanks for any help :D

Its always nice to show a example. Its kind of wierd somtimes I have to use WinGetHandle. :D

$WinHandle = WinGetHandle('My Window')
$text = WinGetText($WinHandle)
MsgBox(0, "Text read was:", $text)
