GUICtrlRead returns 0

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am trying to get to grips with this function, so as a test I am trying to read a field of an outlook contact. So, I have this:

WinActivate("Test - Contact")
Sleep(50)
$x = GUICtrlRead("[CLASS:RichEdit20WPT; INSTANCE:4]")
sleep(50)
ShellExecute("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Sleep(50)
Send($x)

I expected it to send the "Full Name" field from Outlook into Notepad. But all I get is a 0?

Any pointers on this probably really basic error :graduated:

Thanks!

Cheer JohnOne,

I assumed that the ControlID was that the "Advanced (Class):" from the Window Info program. Works a treat now, thanks :graduated:
