Read Tooltip / or ToolText from ShellTray_Wnd

Recommended Posts

ekstasy

Hi folks,

I am a German student so sorry for any language errors.

My problem is:

I want to read the last Database release Date from Kaspersky Pure (Virus Scanner) for a study. The Scanner has a Symbol in the Taskbar and the Tooltip shows my wanted information. If I check the ShellTray_Wnd with the Window Info of AutoIt I can read the wanted Information in the "ToolBar" Tab (Index 1, Command ID 3, Text <- this is the what I want to read out).

I searched the Internet and the Forum for a while but I could not find a clear solution to my problem (which is quite simple, in my opinion). I just need to read those Info and put it in a text file for being able to grab it with VMWare.

I would be so glad, if you could help me out with this.

My every attempt too use the ToolBar Index or Command ID failed and i dont see any documentation on it either.

@Kafu - do you even know how to get any of the info from "Toolbar" tab on the autoit window tool?

I think that would be a good start.

Will try that, thanks.

@KaFu: No you cannot read out of ANY file which version it is, the encoding is REALLY strange, believe me.
