Internet Explorer

I have another fun one:

I was asked if Autoit can capture text on a webpage if the page was only written in Javascript. I wrote a script to work with Computer Assoaciates "Unicenter Service Desk", that is Internet Explorer based. I was not able to capture text in the windows due to the Javascript. Is there a way to do it? ;)

Can you capture this text with a ^A^C^V (select-all, copy, paste)? If so, AutoIt can help you get it that way -- see examples for working with the clipboard.

You can also get text or HTML off of a webpage using COM which the AutoIt beta gives you access to.

Sorry, to get more help you're going to have to provide significantly more detail about your challenge and what you have already tried to address it.

I need to capture specific text off the page to allow for correct timing of my script. The only way I was able to get the program to work was the title window and the webpage listed in the address bar.
