Windows Media Player automation

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm having trouble to obtain the current playing song in WMP.

Big images in spoiler:


What I would like to read


The autoit information tool doesn't work here


Ranorex however does work.

I want to read the contents of the three lines in WMP, Song name, song artist and song album. (look in the spoiler for examples of what I mean).

The Built-in spy tool doesn't give me the information I need, but ranorex spy tool does.

However, I don't know how to work with the information I got.

$WMP = "Windows Media Player"

$handle = WinActivate($WMP)

; Help :(

The specific content I need is in the third image, under ranorex spy Element - Value.

Is it possible, and if yes, how, to get that information?


Thanks in advance for any help :)
