AutoIT Window Info + Japanese

3 posts in this topic

I'm running some automation on japanese XP. AutoIT itself works GREAT with NO issues. However, when trying to get window info, the window info tool flakes.

Basically what happens is the info appears 100% perfect in the window. However, if I go to copy/paste the japanese text, when I paste it it appears as garbage.

I know it's likely a character encoding issue, but the problem is I can't figure out the encoding the copy/paste is. I tried shift-jis/utf-8/some others, but it never appers correct.

Anyone have any suggestions, such as:

-a workaround

-knowing what encoding copy/paste from the window is

-an alternative tool for getting window/button info

Thanks

-an alternative tool for getting window/button info...

Try the code below. If the data stays intact, then you should be able to build a script that gathers some of the info that you want and upon hitting the hotkey of your choice, writes the data to the clipboard or to a text file.
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "Terminate")

While 1
    $Active_Title = WinGetTitle("")
    ToolTip("Active window's title: " & $Active_Title)
    Sleep(1)
WEnd

Func Terminate()
    ClipPut('WinWait("' & $Active_Title & '", "")')
    Exit
EndFunc  ;==>Terminate

Thanks, thatseems to work. The issue was that I'm running on XP US version, but with japanese enabled and set as default. I just discovered that the tool runs fine on Japanese XP.

Odd eh?
