Is there any way to get the text of non standard control

Recommended Posts

birbird

I can't get the text I see. I think it is probably becuase the control is customized.

The UI looks like

show.thumb.png.32bff9e3b4fc5a254ae87b9b2

The Window Info says

control.thumb.png.411fd12e5b1e5d537f30f8

Is there any way to get the text showing on the UI?

Any help will be highly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

I can't see your full window info, but I had an issue similar to this and the solution was to use a regex with the ControlGetText...something similar to this...

x.controlGetText("[REGEXPTITLE:.*WINDOWNAME.*]", "", CONTROL);

I'm using Autoitx4java, but the code should be pretty similar.

Let me give some more explanation of my problem.

In the window info, the text of the control is 888.888, ControlGetText also gives 888.888, but the showing text on the UI is 0.937

I guess the control I am dealing with is a custom control rendering itself by unconventional method, so ControlGetText which works just fine for standard controls can not get the real text.

But, what confused me is the Visible Text tab of window info detected 0.937 successfully. How does Visible Text tab achieve that?

What program are you trying to get the text from? Also post your code.


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.
