How to get the content of DISPLAY field - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

I am doing a automatic task that key in material number and retrieve the material information from database (The application was developed using Microsoft .Net). I use the ControlSetText to send text to textbox and use ControlGetText to get contents of textbox. But for DISPLAY only textbox, ControlGetText gets nothing. Is there other instruction can do this function? Appreciate for any suggestion.

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:


General development and scripting discussions. If it's super geeky and you don't know where to put it - it's probably here.

Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support or AutoIt Technical Discussion forums.
