Have a look at ClipPut() and ClipGet().

This would be the simplest way.


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y. Use Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)[topic="84960"]Brett F's Learning To Script with AutoIt V3[/topic][topic="21048"]Valuater's AutoIt 1-2-3, Class... is now in Session[/topic]Contribution: [topic="87994"]Get SVN Rev Number[/topic], [topic="93527"]Control Handle under mouse[/topic], [topic="91966"]A Presentation using AutoIt[/topic], [topic="112756"]Log ConsoleWrite output in Scite[/topic]

$Result = ControlGetText ('Calculator','','Edit1')
MsgBox (0, 'Test','Result : ' & $Result)

This will return the text of the "result edit" in windows calculator.

Also, If you're trying to automate calculator to get the answer to some sort of math problem you can also do this :

; * = Multiply, / = Divide, + = Add, - = Subtract
MsgBox (0, 'Example 1','2 + 2 = ' & Execute (2 + 2)); 2 plus 2
MsgBox (0, 'Example 2','4 - 2 = ' & Execute (4 - 2)); 4 minus 2
MsgBox (0, 'Example 3','4 / 2 = ' & Execute (4 / 2)); 4 divided by 2
MsgBox (0, 'Example 4','2 x 2 = ' & Execute (2 * 2)); 2 times 2
MsgBox (0, 'Example 5','((2 + 2) x 3) / 2 = ' & Execute (((2+2) * 3) / 2)); sum of 2 plus 2 times 3 divided by 2 which is acutally 12 / 2

Hope this helps!
