Data Extraction

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am new to AutoIT and trying to get an understanding of its capabilities and limitations. I have a need to insert and extract data from a java thick client application.

Does AutoIT have the ability to gather the data contained in a text box or data grid from a thick client (i.e. non-html)? I have looked through the documentation. It seems that GUICtrlRead() can return a value, but I do not know how to reference the textbox or data grid, since I did not create it in the first place.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi, mrabidou, welcome to the forum. AutoIt works with the Windows API, and thus has issues interacting with Java GUIs. You might want to do a search for the JAVA UDF in the Examples section. I haven't used it myself, but it may provide some of the functionality you're looking for. Aside from this, probably the best way to ascertain what you will and will not be able to do is to explain what application you're trying to manipulate, and provide screenshots if possible.
