AutoIt has an interface to access COM objects, but is not Object Oriented (which is not the same thing).

You would use GuiCtrlRead() or _GUICtrlEdit_GetText(); see help file. The first is a native AutoIt function using standard Windows API (in C++, I think). The later is simply making a DLL call (look up the function in GuiEdit.au3 to see).

:)

Edit: Added explanation.

Thank you very much, ur my HERO :). That _GUICtrlEdit_GetText helped me alot since i discovered alot with this format "_GUIObject_Prop/Method" in the help file. That is what i was searching for. Have a nice day!
