Reading another application's Debug Output

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone knows if AutoIT can read the debug output from another application, I need to wait until a certain piece of text is output, which is the application saying the load is completed, I can't use WinWait because the load is a control inside a window which is actually a remote view on another machine.

I can clearly see the output in Sysinternals Debug View but I'm not sure how to read this information and wait until it sees that particular piece of text.

Many thanks in advance.

Look in Help-File for run and all related functions specialy the Std*-functions.

Sysinternals DebugView has a 'Filtering' feature which seems to do exactly what you need.

Use the Help for DebugView.

Many thanks, was I was aware DebugView can do this with a filtering, I was just trying to avoid shipping the DebugView executable hoping there was something native in Auto IT.

 

Many thanks for the responses.

You could give this UDF a try.  It's a old, and may need updating to work with the current version of AutoIt.
