TextCaptureX (Deskperience) - help with DLLs

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone.

I'm trying to use TextCaptureX (http://www.deskperience.com/textcapture/) to capture text from any window automatically. I want to set my AutoIT script to call TextCaptureX DLLs, and I really don't know what I am doing wrong.

The demo version comes with some examples of applications (VB, JScript, C++ etc...), and they work fine. I know that the DLLCall and ObjCreate AutoIT functions can be very tricky to use, so I still don't know if the problem is with AutoIT or with my brain.

Please, if anyone is familiar with TextCaptureX and already used it along with AutoIT, give me a hand. And I would also like some other ideas for text capture softwares with API, SDK etc...

Thank you!

I found out. I tried ObjCreate instead of DllCall, but I also had some problems with the variable type of the window handle.

Well... you asked for some code, so here you are, and working now.

Thank you!
