[Solved] Anyone Know a Good Alternative to Spy++, for Capturing Windows Messages?

Recommended Posts

Zohar

Hi

I am looking for an Alternative to Spy++, for Capturing Windows Messages,

so I can then simulate them via AutoIt, to control other apps.

If anyone can recommend, that would be great.

It doesn't work on all the windows I've tried, but you might try GetWindowText by SoftwareOK. (Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but thought I'd throw it out there.)

Edit: Punctuation and disclaimer added.

Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

Hi JohnQSmith

This looks like a very nice program, but it gets Texts from Windows,

and not Windows Messages, which is something else..

But thnk you for it :) It can be useful for other situations

WinSpector and WinDetective display messages

A better tool than Auinfo?

I've had enough of this forum and these people who never acknowledge posted working answers.

Hi Rover

The reason I have not answered yet was because I was at work..

I planned to check the 2 programs you mentioned during the weekend, and that's what I am doing now..

So first, thank you very much for the answer..

And second, I will soon write here my experiment with them..

Fossil Rock:

Thank you too, will check it out now.

OK now I had a chance to go over all of them.

WinSpector: I used it in the past, but now it seems it is not being developed anymore.

WinSpy++: Looks very nice.

WinDetective: Wow - this seems like something that was created by someone with good understanding of UI. I am going to download this one!

Thank you for them

This works very well for me, thanks. 

Very easy to use because of its simplicity and the needed information 'Title' and 'Class' are are well positioned.  Good design.

 

The other program WinDetective missed capturing some windows, e.g. Notepad2.exe.

When it's not developped doesn't mean it's not working.

I use this tool without any problems.
