Reading a control?

2 posts in this topic

I'm trying to access some data from within a Microsoft Money screen to print checks (the built in function doesn't support printing on single wallet checks). Maybe it's just a poorly written application, but many of the fields (specifically, those in the "write new check" window either don't have or have non-unique ControlIDs, and they have non-unique ClassNameNNs. Is there a way to get the data?

Using non-control apporaches like examing visible text appears futile as well. I've tried positioning the mouse, but some fields don't respond to a Ctrl-A for selection. I guess I can manipulate the mouse buttons while dragging the mouse over a field, but that seems pretty awkward!

By the time I figure this out, my hand surgery will have healed and I can go back to writing them longhand :lmao:

A quick search of the forum for "Microsoft Money" turned up one post that might interest you: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=10159

That person used the various AutoIt pixel functions to find what to click on.

Just a thought.
