Read character string

Recommended Posts

232showtime

sorry if i will ask a noob question again, is it possible to read the character that i typed in the input box which is not created by autoit???

I tried this one and its not working

$1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("A", 32, 88, 75, 25)

While 1
 $x3 = GUICtrlRead("[CLASS:TEdit;INSTANCE:1]")
  Switch
   Case $1
    ControlSend("Open", "", "[CLASS:Edit;INSTANCE:1]", $x3)
   endswitch
wend

hello muzaiyan i tried your code but it sends nothing even if there is a text in the inputbox...

i dont know why, maybe because the window is not active?
 

$1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("A", 32, 88, 75, 25)

while 1
$x3 = ControlGetText("Documentation management system", "", "[CLASS:TEdit; INSTANCE:1]"); title to send
  $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $1
                       ControlSend("Open", "", "[CLASS:Edit;INSTANCE:1]", $x3) ; send the title from $x3
         endswitch
Wend

gotta run thank you for replying....

use AutoIt info tool to get the info about control

check if window exists

check value of @error after ControlGetText()

check the value of $x3 after function call ControlGetText()

You misspelled your variable name for the ControlGetText function call. "$x3" instead of "x3" 232showtime.
