Hi all, I'm new to autoit but hope I'll be able to master it and utilize it for my plans of world domination :whistle:

Anyway, I was wondering if exists a simple way to read onscreen text which isn't accesable as a control thingi, like some scanners can.

Also, is there a way to read text marked by the mouse?

To read text like scanners can, Search for OCR both on these forums and in google.

To get the text marked by the mouse, do CTRL+C. It will send the highlighted text to the clipboard (copy). Then do a ClipGet() to retrieve the text.


AutoIt Scripts:Aimbot: Proof of Concept - PixelSearching Aimbot with several search/autoshoot/lock-on techniques.Sliding Toolbar - Add a nice Sliding Toolbar to your next script. Click the link to see an animation of it in action!FontInfo UDF - Get list of system fonts, or search to see if a particular font is installed.Get Extended Property UDF - Retrieve a files extended properties (e.g., video/image dimensions, file version, bitrate of song/video, etc)
