Read Text from StatusBar (Audacity)

Recommended Posts


Hi ,

I am trying to set up something basic to read the status from the StatusBar and depending on that status to run some scripts. However i have been unable to read the simple status even though the AutoIT Window Info tool does see the text.

I did notice it does not populate the first property, but rather the second property contains the text i need.

Is there some way to grab that second property?

The application i am trying to read from is Audacity,

Here is some simple code i was using to test grabbing the text.

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$TextinWindow = StatusbarGetText("502013341_E_cnt_1_r720P")


When i try with other applications like Notepad++ that seems to work with no problem.

In the attached Snip you will see that in the StatusBar window the value stopped is there.

When i press play in audacity it changes that status to Playing.

Thanks for your help.
