Do something if specific text shows up on screen

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to do an action if specific text shows up on the current screen?

Like, playing a game for example and someone were to type 'text'.

Then if it find's the word 'text' it will do an action. Is this possible?

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

The answer to your question is usually "Yes", but the manner in which you have posed it is not in accordance with our Forum Rules. Please read those rules before you post again. ;)

See you soon with a legimate question I hope. :)


P.S. The reason I say "usually" above is because many games will not let you read the screen, nor interact with them. ;)
