Reading from traytip

Recommended Posts

I have read many forum posts about this and tried many things but still cannot get this working

Basically my AMD Driver crashes now and again and I want to write to console when it does.

This is what I have so far.

While 1
        If WinExists("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]", "Display driver AMD driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered.") Then
        ConsoleWrite("AMD Driver Has Crashed")
        Sleep(30000) ;~ for the tooltip to go away

This however does not work..

Edit: looking at your info again it looks like the "text" is coming through as the title. So I would do something like:

If WinExists("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]","") then
 $title = WinGetTitle("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]","")
  If $title = "yadda yadda" then
  ; do something

Good Thinking,


Tried it out but weirdly enough it didn't show anything when the traytip displayed just a blank msgbox

That's because I assumed the text you wanted to match would come through as the text. I saw later by your info the text comes through as Title. I already edited my post after I noticed.

Try using _GUIToolTip_GetTitleText from the latest release version ( of AutoIt. The help file has an example of how to use it. Although, the second example script from _GUIToolTip_GetText might give you a better idea of how to do it with tooltips that aren't created by you.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
