capturing text

5 posts in this topic

I am looking for a way to capture text from a window

When i hover over it with my mouse the mouse turns into the "I" shape which tells me there is text there, i was wondering if there is any commands to read something like this?

There is no gui control that i can read

but there is no visible text or hidden text using the Autoit window info tool, so WinGetText didn't work :(

Ahhh, that does present a problem. Is is a Command Prompt window by any chance?

I actually ran into the same issue, and my window is a popup window from Microsoft CRM called "Phone Call: New" plenty of fields with information to grab, but when you select it with the Window Info tool it only selects the main screen and not the controls and field on the screen itself, what is pretty useless.

Any ideas?
