Copy text from window, then do something


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm trying to write a script that takes the results from the window below, looks for only the numbers after the text "value:" (nothing beyond those numbers) and then copies that number and sends it to another windows input box. I've written the basic code to the point it waits until this window pops up... I'm just not sure how to write the remaining portion of the script.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

@JLogan3o13 See below, the $sText variable provides me with the data in the message box but I'm not sure what the formula would be for narrowing down the data to show only the information after the "value:" text and only 12 spaces after that. Then use that text to copy into another GUI's input window. 


#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

While 1

WinWait("WindowTitle", "TextToFindInWindow")
Local $sText = ControlGetText("WindowTitle", "", "WindowClassInstance")
MsgBox(0, "", $sText)

@JLogan3o13 I've managed to narrow down the "Value:" data using an array by adding the following code, just not sure how to utilize that text after this point to send it to the input box-


$string = $sText
$array1 = StringSplit($string,"Value:,.",2)
_ArrayDisplay($array1, "", "23:23")


I've also tried ArrawyToClip but I'm not fully understanding how to send that array data, testing with notepad. 


$string = $sText
$array1 = StringSplit($string,"Value:,.",2)
_ArrayToClip($array1, "", "23", "23")
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "_ArrayToClip()", ClipGet())
Send("_ArrayToClip()", ClipGet()) ;DOES NOT WORK


I was able to get send the text using the below, "hello" was just apart of the test. 

$Var = StringStripWS(ClipGet(), 😎
Send("Hello " & $Var)

The way to use ClipGet / ClipPut :


$cVar0 = "ABC"

$cVar1 = ClipGet ()

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "_ArrayToClip()", $cVar1)


$cVar1 = ClipGet ()

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "_ArrayToClip()", $cVar1)
