Dialog Boxes and strings

5 posts in this topic

I have a dialog box with a string i need to read which is held in a static text box (i think) inside the dialog.

I was hoping the autoit window info tool would diplay the name of the control which holds the string, but

it does not - so how do i read the text string.

Regs,

Bob.

does the window info tool display the text you're tryign to grab anywhere? window text, control text etc?

Try (with msgbox displayed):

$sTitle = "here the msgbox title";win title

If WinExists( $sTitle ) Then
    $sText = ControlGetText( $sTitle, '', "Static1")
    Msgbox(0, "Text copied", "Text captured from the msgbox: '" & $sTitle & "'" & @LF & '"' & $sText & '"' )
Else
    Msgbox(0, "Error", "window: " & $sTitle & " doesn't exists."  )
EndIf

If you cannot find it in the window info tool - then look at PixelChecksum.

If you are looking for a phrase to be present or not, then you might be able to PixelChecksum the entire area where the phrase shows up. If you must read each character, then search the forum for OCR.

Edit2 - I found my answer to Edit1

No sign of the desired text anywhere, although i do get the correct window name and info about the ok

button.

This is the code used to create the box in c++, i need to cpture the cption from the class,

is there a mechanism for obtaining the class used to derive a window and accesing it members

using its handle?

_fastcall Tform_RigErrorMessageBox::Tform_RigErrorMessageBox(

TComponent* Owner, String caption, String message)

: TForm(Owner), selfDelete(false)

{

message += "\n";

this->Caption = caption;

int captionWidth = 1.15 * this->Canvas->TextWidth(caption);

int initialTextWidth = label_Message->Width;

int initialTextHeight = label_Message->Height;

label_Message->Caption = message;

int currentTextWidth = label_Message->Width;

int currentTextHeight = label_Message->Height;

//Is message text width larger than default?

int textWidthDifference =

currentTextWidth - initialTextWidth;

//Is caption width larger than message text width and default?

if (captionWidth > initialTextWidth && captionWidth > currentTextWidth)

{

textWidthDifference = captionWidth - initialTextWidth;

label_Message->Width = captionWidth;

}

//Does caption and message text fit in window?

if (textWidthDifference > 0)

{

this->Width = this->Width + textWidthDifference;

}

int textHeightDifference =

currentTextHeight - initialTextHeight;

if (textHeightDifference > 0)

{

this->Height = this->Height + textHeightDifference;

button_OK->Top = button_OK->Top + textHeightDifference;

}

button_OK->Left = (this->Width) / 2 - (button_OK->Width) / 2 - 5;

}

regs,

Bob
