      Hello everyone,
      I would like to get some advice or help with my code.
      I am try to make a simple script, what is reading the text form other program GUI.
      I do have an old communicator what was made with Delphi, and i try to read the message what i am geting on it.
      Here is the Info from the communicator:
      INSTANCE1 is the TOP side, and INSTANCE2 is the bottom side.

      I could manage only to sending message with script, but i could not read the exact panel text. See below.
      Local $WHnd = WinList("[CLASS:TMainForm]", "") ControlSend($WHnd[1][1], "", "[CLASS:TRichEdit; INSTANCE:1]", "asd") I tried to read it with GuiCtrlRead, and _GUICtrlRichEdit_GetText, and WinGetText but somehow it did not work, or i am just too lame to make it alive.
      Any idea how to make it or is it posible to make it with AutoIT?
