inspu,

You can use other things than the ControlID to identify a control - take a look at <Using Autoit - Window Titles and Text (Advanced)> in the Help file to see the options. ;)

In this case CLASS might be the way to go. What does the AutoIt Window Info tool tell you about the control? :huh2:

inspu,

Based on that information, try this:

ControlGetText("MotorolaFX7400 Properties", "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.3ee7db9; INSTANCE:1]")
