Can i get the text of the item where the cursor currently pointing to

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

           In a tree view, i am sending cursor to move down two steps (send("{DOWN 2}")) .How can i know whether it points to the exact item or not. 

           Can we retrieve the text  where the cursor currently pointing to. I used Control get text, and control command(get selected).. But it was not working fine.

           Actually in a context menu, i am sending the above comman and there in context menu, i can get only the class name as #32768 in basic window info and not the control info.. So, may be i cant use  Control get text or control command(get selected) as these functions need control information.

           Could anyone please let me know if there is any other function.


Thank you.

For the treeview, you can use ControlTreeView or _GUICtrlTreeView_XXXXX functions (see help file). Instead of using Send, you can do the same thing properly with these functions (if the control is recognized as a treeview, of course)

Some functions can have a strange behavior when using a x86 script with x64 windows.
