IE get text on screen

Recommended Posts

Hi, hello.

I have a question about IE, the purpose is as follows;

In example : AutoIt Forums > AutoIt v3 > General

Lets say i hover with my mouse over the word "General". Is it possible to make the script recognize the word i'm hovering over and place that in a listbox? Or if i rightclick the word a popupmenu comes up with "move to my listbox" or something. The script doesn't have to know the meaning of the word, just that it recognizes that it IS a word. Without having to copy paste it to a textbox or something.

I'm not sure where to start in my search to build this.

I was hoping for help from you guys :idea:

I'm not new to IE.au3.. but i cannot figure out how to determine wheter my mousearrow is on an image or hovering over text and how to recognize that.

Edit: in general, how to determine what happens in IE, events etc.

You need to read up on ObjEvent and the Event model in the DOM (see my sig for pointers).

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
