Grabbing Text

3 posts in this topic

Hello all, I just started using AutoIt tonight, I am trying to develop a automated start up program. This is the first time I have ever used any scripting language, and while I am coming along well, I am having a hard time with one aspect.

One of the programs I need to start up will show a dispay address, in a seperate window. This will always be prefixed by "Display: xxxxxxxxx" These two windows are in a Terminal emulator type program, where there is no copy and paste shortcuts. Also to select text it has to have a box dragged around it and sized. Is there a way to get the script to look in "Window 2" for the text "Display:" and then copy "xxxxxxxxxx" in to a variable?

Thanks for any assistance.

I'm having a hard time understanding the situation. It might be easier if you could post a screenshot, preferably showing the AU3Info tool as well.
