Geting text from a terminal window

2 posts in this topic

I use a terminal in TXT format on my work, running in a window inside Windows Vista.

AutoIt:

I want to get a string from a specific part of the terminal window and put it in a AutoIt variable.

It's possible to do that?

OBS: The cursor can reach any part of the terminal window by using arrows, and it's also possible to select the required text and use Control + V to copy it.

Thanks in advance!

André.

You can send Alt space then ES then Enter to select all the text on the screen. Then past it into a variable and extract the part you want.

Something like this might do what you want.

Send("!E")
Send|("S{ENTER}")
$txt = clipget
MsgBox(262144,"Screen text is",$txt)

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.
