Where is the fire?

When you want to get proper help you really need to provide better information as it all depends on what kind of application you want to retrive this text from.   Is it an Browser or native Windows application? 
Have you tried anything yet or are you in such a hurry that you can't be bothered to do some research yourself first? :)

Hi
no not from any external application, from the autoit script
For example

GUICreate("edit test")
$edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 50, 10, 100, 50)
_GUICtrlEdit_SetText($edit, "test, this is a test" & @crlf & "how to select all text from this edit please")

I searched a lot and i found several publications explaining this but didn't work.

to selecte all the text in edit or input  i found function:

_GUICtrlEdit_SetSel

But I did not succeed in identifying all the text
and about how to get the selected text it couldn't find function do this job and all roads reached don't do what I want.
Please help me in this.

Helpfile :
_GUICtrlEdit_SetSel ( $hWnd, $iStart, $iEnd )
Remarks : If the $iStart is 0 and the $iEnd is –1, all the text in the edit control is selected.

A simple question
Instead of selecting all and then get the selection, why not directly use GuiCtrlRead which reads the whole content ?

      hello guys
      how are you؟
      I hope to be fine.
      I have a question  please
      how do I get the menu item that was pressed without that contains a variable؟
      For example I have a menu  of Favorites and I want the script recognizes the existing path in the pressed item
      i'll repeat to tell the item does not contain a variable
      Is there any solution
      if you want to explain more I could write an example of what I want.
      Greetings to all,
      thanks in advance

      Hi dear
      I want create retractable bar using autoit
      I tried creating slider, but there's a problem with screen reader for the blind, so is there another retractable tape?
      It is advisable to not accept dragging with the keybord only with  mouse
      note:
      This bar is needed in the process of raising and lowering the volume
      I hope that there is a solution to do that
      i waiting your responses.
      Thanks in advance to all members and administrators
