How to use ControlGetText Command in Autohotkey?

Recommended Posts

Dear friends I wish to know how to use ControlGetText Command. However I have read the help documentation of ControlGetText Command still I do not understand how to use this as there is no proper example of this command in help section in autohotkey. As I want, I have a calculator opened and I want to copy all the items present in its view menu, then how can I use ControlGetText command? Similarly if I have an untitled notepad window and I want to copy all the options available in its file menu then what should I do with ControlGetText command. As I am trying to retrieve the text from controls of autohotkey help tabs using these codes, but they are not working- moreover you can look at the image attached with this question. please help me. thanks

Welcome to AutoIt!
Seems you are on the wrong forum. To get help for your AutoHotkey question I suggest to ask it on the AutoHotkey forum.
Good luck!

 i have seen many questions related to autohotkey asked on this forum also and they are solved very well also

 We will try to help translate from AHK into AutoIt, but responding to AHK questions is asking a bit much. Go and ask on an AHK forum.
