I know this is a pretty old topic, but when you said $stringToSend = GUICtrlRead($Edit1), was that able to look though everything in the editbox? 

Outcome I am wanting

Paste a lot of names into the editbox

based on the names that are found in the editbox I want to run a function for each name.

As of now I can only get it to read the first name and if there is anything else in the editbox it will not do anything.
