First of All, I am new with autoit and trying to get some functions down.

I am making an automatic clean process, its running clean programs and control the clicks with controlclick.


Now after i have run System ninja i want to read the result and write it in to a log, but cant find a function to read someting in an external program.

Can some one give me a push in the right direction?

$TITLE = "System Ninja"
        $SUB = "100%"
            WinWait($TITLE, $SUB)
            If Not WinActive($TITLE, $SUB) Then WinActivate($TITLE, $SUB)
            WinActive($TITLE, $SUB)
            ControlClick($TITLE, $SUB, "Delete Everything","",1, 210, 12)
Sleep (5000)

    $TITLE = "Scan For Junk"
        $SUB = "Files Found"
            WinWait($TITLE, $SUB)
            If Not WinActive($TITLE, $SUB) Then WinActivate($TITLE, $SUB)
            WinActive($TITLE, $SUB)
            $x = Filereadline($SUB, 1)
            FileWriteLine($log, $x)

Barukkumun, for future reference, this is where you providing as much information as possible will allow you to get help much more quickly:

You stated "read the result and write it to a log file", which is what I gave you. If you are wanting to read from a specific window, such as a virus scan product, you need to say so. You also need to specify which application you're trying to read the results from (reading the results from MS Security Essentials is going to be different than reading from McAffee, etc.). Help us help you by including as much information as possible (including screenshots if needed) when asking your questions ;)

@JLogan3o13, you are right, i thought I explained enough after the System ninja part.

I am running A System ninja scan at the moment and after you have scanned and deleted the "infected" files the screen gives you how many files it found, i have highlighted it in the image below.


That part(how many files it found) i want to write to a log file.

This is an idea (I have not done it before) but can you use Au3info to get the ID of that part (if it has one) and then be able to read it with your script?


I have tried but too bad it didnt gave an id(the part i want)(Thanks for the Idea anyways :lol: )

Edit: removed the info to shorten this post cause it didnt work, the ID kept on changing

I tried to help, by looking for you but i can't wrap my head arround the sollution.

Is there a way to copy visible text from the screen? When i used Autoit Window Info it showed my the text you want in the tab: Visible text.

But i can't seem to figure out how to copy it.

Have you tried the Class or ClassNN instead of title or ID?

If you can see the visible text being the element that you want in the win info tool, then you can also use that to try and grab that Ctrl.

When i use this:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>


$TITLE  =   "System Ninja"
$SUB    =   "Files Found"

Local $text = WinGetClassList($TITLE, "")
Local $array = StringSplit($text, @LF, 1)

For $i = 1 To $array[0]
    $text = ControlGetText($TITLE, "", "[CLASS:" & $array[$i] & "; INSTANCE:" & $i & "]")
    If Not $text = "" Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: " & $i, $text)

It does not show, below you will find the summary of the Window Info Tool.
