Question about AutoIT and what is uses for Text manipulation

Recommended Posts



I'm wondering how AutoIT gets the text from the controls in windows, and how it sets it.

Does it use the MSAA capability of Windows? Or some other thing?

I need to know this, as it will tell me in what programs my app will work, and in which it won't, before

I try to implement it.

Also : Is there a way to get the text where the system caret is at anytime? (maybe a text index or something)...
