Is it possible to read text from a window?


Recommended Posts

I'm unsure if this would be possible. It would require a fairly complex OCR to do it through an image, though AutoIt may very well have a function to parse memory offsets for ASCII information.

The text I want to read is in a windowed game, on a popup 'inside' that game. The popup is not a seperate window, it just appears as on inside the game.

Thanks.

If you cannot get the information with WinGetText() / ControlGetText() ... then you will need to look at PixelCheckSum() and make your own OCR for it.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
