How can I get text from a Win 7 Gadget?

1 post in this topic

I have 2 instances of the same windows gadget running and I want to get the the text ($oIE.document.body.innerhtml) from those windows.

I know very little about gadgets, but they appear to be running in an embedded IE window (similar to an HTA). I can get the HWNDs for both host windows, but then I get stuck.

A Copy of the script I'm working on

#include <IE.au3>

Local $vGadgetHWNDs, $oIE, $hWinHostIE

$vGadgetHWNDs = GetList('[Class:SideBar_HTMLHostWindow]')

If IsArray($vGadgetHWNDs) Then

    ConsoleWrite('DebugOutput : Window Count ' & $vGadgetHWNDs[0] & @TAB & $vGadgetHWNDs[1] & @TAB & $vGadgetHWNDs[2] & @LF)

    $oIE = _IEAttach($vGadgetHWNDs[1],'HWND')
    If IsObj($oIE) Then
        ConsoleWrite('DebugOutput : HWND method : object name=' & ObjName($oIE))
    Else
        ConsoleWrite('DebugOutput : HWND method : not an object')
    EndIf


    $oIE = _IEAttach('[Class:Internet Explorer_Server]','title')
    If IsObj($oIE) Then
        ConsoleWrite('DebugOutput : Title method 1 : object name=' & ObjName($oIE))
    Else
        ConsoleWrite('DebugOutput : Title method 1 : not an object')
    EndIf


    $oIE = _IEAttach('[Class:SideBar_HTMLHostWindow]','title')
    If IsObj($oIE) Then
        ConsoleWrite('DebugOutput : Title method 2 : object name=' & ObjName($oIE))
    Else
        ConsoleWrite('DebugOutput : Title method 2 : not an object')
    EndIf
    
    $hWinHostIE = _IEAttach($vGadgetHWNDs[1], "embedded")   
    ; causes a error and stops the script

    ;$hWinHostIE = _IEAttach($vGadgetHWNDs[1],'dialogbox')
    ; causes same error
EndIf



Func GetList($sTitle)
    Local $vHWNDs[1]=[0], $vList = WinList($sTitle)
    If IsArray($vList) Then
        For $i = 1 to $vList[0][0]
            If IsVisible($vList[$i][1]) Then
                $vHWNDs[0] += 1
                ReDim $vHWNDs[$vHWNDs[0] + 1]
                $vHWNDs[$i] = $vList[$i][1]
            EndIf
        Next
    EndIf
    Return $vHWNDs
EndFunc

Func IsVisible($HWND)
  If BitAnd( WinGetState($HWND), 2 ) Then Return 1
  Return 0
EndFunc
