Get Value of Text Property

2 posts in this topic

AutoIt v3 Window Info shows me the following for a control:

Class: AfxWnd90s
Instance: 104
ClassnameNN: AfxWnd90s104
Name: [empty]
Advanced Mode: [CLASS:AfxWnd90s; INSTANCE 80]
ID: 1
Text: MyText
etc.

I tried to get the text with the following but only get an empty string:

Local $sText = ControlGetText("[CLASS:AfxWnd90s; INSTANCE:80]", "", "")

Clearly the text "MyText" can be read as "Auto v3 Window Info" shows it. So how do I get to that text?

Welcome to Autoit and the forum!

I wonder why it reads "Instance: 104" in line 2 and "Instance 80" in the Advanced Mode.
But as the Control has an ID of 1 I simply would use the ID to access the Control.

BTW: The sequence of the parameters is wrong. It should be:

Local $sText = ControlGetText("x", "", 1)

"x" needs to be replaced by the title/hWnd/class of the window to access.
