Use the autoit window info tool which you can get the control, then use ControlGetText and there you go.

Ratna,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :mellow:

You need to use the ControlGetText command, after having used the Au3 Window Info tool to identify the edit control in Calulator.

This script shows how it works:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read", 10, 10, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            If Not WinExists("Calculator") Then
                MsgBox(0, "Error", "Please Start Calculator")
            Else
                $sContent = ControlGetText("Calculator", "", "[CLASS:Edit;INSTANCE:1]")
                MsgBox(0, "Calc Read", "Calculator is reading: " & $sContent)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Start Calculator (the script reminds you if you do not!) and when you are ready to read the result, press the "Read" button.

Ask if anything is unclear. :P

What other functions could I use to read text from a list box? When using the window info tool there is no visible or hidden text that is found.

hornet.

What does the Window Info tool tell you about the window and the listbox control? :mellow:

Hey M23, this is what the info tool shows me. I have tried to run _GUICtrlListBox_GetText and it returns "0". I have also tried _GUICtrlListBox_FindInText and _GUICtrlListBox_FindString with no luck. I have tried various _GUICtrlListView_ functions as well. Any further help or direction is greatly appreciated.

hornet,

This "Lobby" window would not be the lobby in Zynga poker, which your friend Phenom has been trying to read and been warned off here, would it? :mellow:

I would hate to think you were trying to get round the ban on getting help to break an EULA. Do you want a holiday from here that much? :P

Number 1, I have never spoke to Phenom before seeing his post...it just appears that he and I are looking for the same type of information. Number 2, just because it's a "Lobby" does not mean it's a poker lobby. And besides that, just like Phenom said in his post Zynga is not for real money, they don't consider bots cheating, and if I wanted a Zynga bot I would just download the one that is already available. So I would really like to find the information I am looking for just as Phenom probably is as well. Is this something that is too complicated for the massive volume of users in this forum?
