Scrolling to bottom of application, selecting all the data, and pasting it into a new text file

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I am extremely new to Autoit but it seems like a very useful program! One of my duties at my workplace is to examine information inside of CodeXL and copy certain parts of it to rich text files. Some of the files can take more than an hour to scroll through so I had the idea of using Autoit to help free me up some time to get other projects taken care of. I was thinking of somehow using MouseWheel("down", x) to scroll to the bottom of the file. Then right click and click select all and copy it to be pasted into a file. Does anyone else have experience with this? I searched the forums and google with no luck. Thanks again guys and girls!

Can you select all of the text in this program using CTRL-A rather than using the menu? Why do you need to scroll to the bottom of the document if all you're doing is selecting everything?


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.

​CodeXl has such large files you have to continue scrolling down for all of the information to continue to load, if you just try to grab all of the information at the beginning you only get a small percentage of the data
