Hello all! I have had some issues reading text from different types of windows, occasionally, specifically with controlgettext.
**Before I begin, I know there are better ways to do what I attempt in the example below. That's not the point of this post. The point is my issues with controlgettext.
I am about to cite an example with an application you may be familiar with called SpeedFan (v4.52). My problem is not specific to speedfan, it is simply the most recent and easily reproducible example I can think of.
So, the goal of the script below is to get a string of text containing the current fan RPMs from the highlighted control in the screenshot below (see "speedfan_control_details.png").
Now, here's a simple script for grabbing the window handle and reading the text from that control:
$wintitle = "SpeedFan 4.52" $controlID = "197934" ;will be reformatted as "[ID:######]" $hwnd = wingethandle($wintitle) if @error<>0 then msgbox(0, "WinGetHandle", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) Exit EndIf $text = ControlGetText($hwnd, "", "[ID:"&$controlID&"]") if @error=1 then msgbox(0, "ControlGetText", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) ;failure returns "" and @error=1 Exit EndIf msgbox (0, "ControlGetText", "SUCCESS. @error="&@error &@CRLF& "$text="&$text) ;success returns string and @error=0 You'll see that the ControlGetText operation runs without error, however it does not capture any text from the control. If you explore the other controls in this one window, you'll find mixed results across the board. Neither the temps nor voltages can be read, while the log field and some other elements can be read. Even when you read the text from the whole window, those elements are not included in the visible nor hidden texts.
I have run into this issue many times in the past- inconsistencies in the ability of autoit to interact with certain controls. What is it which makes this text different than any other readable texts? Is there an alternate method of reading the text in the window/control which could work? Any and all info to help me solve this mystery and satisfy my curiosity would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks -Rob C
PS: Running Autoit v126.96.36.199 on Win7 Ultimate x64
May be some of you know Songr .
This script do the same job, it can find more mp3 files but is not as fast as Songr.
Sites used are music search engine Websites designed for LEGAL entertainment purposes only.
Thanks to Brett Francis, Prog@ndy and Eukalyptus for >Bass Udf, trancex for >WinHttp Udf and the AutoIt Community for his help.
Changes of v188.8.131.52
Three websites replaced cause they are dead or use now js.
All search engines updated ( not without difficulties for audiodump)
I use RAGrid.dll for the first listview (more fast and stable, but with some inconvenients to manage the no-edit of cells)
Input queries are saved ( the twenty latest)
I use now an mp3 pre-Load management before playing and a double progressbar for visualize pre-load and play, where you can click for directly go play in the loaded part.
Most includes needed are embedded and all external files are embedded in script with >BinaryToAu3Kompressor .
Multi downloads available with embedded downloader.exe
Changes of v184.108.40.206
Search on audiodump and myfreemp3 fixed.
Added Gui Menu.
Titles are no more editable.
New "About" with >TaskDialog (Thanks Prog@andy)
Query button permit now to check / uncheck all checkboxes
And some few fixes and cleaning.
Really more stable now.
Changes of v220.127.116.11
Dilandau is replaced by mp3chief and mp3ili by mp3clan
Search on mp3juices, baseofmp3 and soundcloud fixed.
Soso now provide m4a (aac) instead of mp3 ( m4a can be played by MSE)
Added possibility to encode automaticaly to mp3, aac or ogg ( at the end of download) using bassenc.dll and command line tools : lame, faac and oggenc.
Changes of v18.104.22.168 mp3skull fixed mp3chief fixed myfreemp3 fixed mp3clan changed to tusmp3 mp3juices changed to emp3world baseofmp3 changed to imp3 and some minor improvements.
Most previous websites used are dead or have changed the way to get links,
so instead of try to repair the previous version, i have created a complete new version.
The main tendency is the simplification :
Only one website : audiodump (Up to 500 results by request)
Script use now the little pearl created by Ward : curl.au3
It permit to create tasks (get source and get multi mp3) in asynchronous mode.
So now, no need to use several executables and no more gui who do not respond in case of connection problems.
Script use Bass.dll X86 loaded in memory for play songs.
Result is light and fast, but don't abuse of audiodump servers who are not beasts of race.
Warning : For avoid errors with curl.au3, you'll need to comment the line 63 : ;~ #Include <BinaryCall.au3>
@AutoItX64 not supported and only tested on Win7X64 and Win8.1X64.
As your browser, use Ctrl+w for remove the current Tab.(if there is no search or download running from it)
And also Ctrl+q for set/remove Gridlines.
Events are displayed to the bottom of the Gui.
Added a Paste Button.
Querry list is now correctly saved.
Querry Combo is now sorted in alphabetical order
After a 'No match', the next search will use the previous empty listview.
Bug when removing tabs is corrected.
Added string correction for the request that, in the previous version, was not always able to return a correct result.
A big thanks to Ward for his great UDF, and Nina my favorite tester, (who between us is also my third daughter), for his precious advices .
previous downloads : 1703
As there is no more script downloads count, source and executable are available in the downloads section
July 2017 Project Discontinued due to website changes
I'm trying to vertically center text in label controls, but no way. The search on the forum returns no result, or I don't search the right way
When I insert a button and a label of same size close to each other, the text is centered on the button, but top aligned on the label, or edit. Which doesn't look really aesthetic
Any idea is welcome
Thanks in advance,
