Extracting an integer value

5 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I am trying to extract the an integer value for a window as shown in the attachment.

I have been able to extract it as a text value. But I need to be able to extra it as an integer value so that I can manipulate it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

AutoIt uses variant type for the variables. Therefore you don't need to convert it explicit to an integer, but you can do it like this:

$Integer = Int($String)

Thanks for your reply. I think I may be referencing the wrong location to pull the value from. I am able to get to the specified location and change the value if needed. But I still dont know which command to use to pull the value from the box. The MsgBox is just to check the value that is returned, which returns 0 no matter what number is in the box.

WinWaitActive("Account lockout threshold Properties")

$Integer = WinGetText("Account lockout threshold Properties")

$Integer = int($Integer)

MsgBox(0, "", $Integer)

Have a look at ControlGetText and the AutoIt Window Info tool coming with AutoIt.

Thanks for the reply, it took me a little while to figure it out but it looks like that should do it.
