Getting text from old non-wide controls

2 posts in this topic

Is there a way to make AutoIt use TVM_GETITEMA instead of TVM_GETITEMW? I'm working with an old program that only responds to the former.

I'm going to assume you're using the standard AutoIt3 exe and not the AutoItX dll.

If you're using this on a non-Unicode treeview, the UDF functions for treeviews should already be using GETITEMA instead of W. If the function isn't working correctly with the treeview you're trying to read from, you can always try taking the functions in the UDF and changing any references to GETITEMW with the A variable instead.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
