So you know there are lots of different types of controls right? The method will be dictated by those controls. You'll need to share at least a bit more if not a lot more information about what you are working with, what you've tried and what didn't work the way you expected it to.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Ok,hmm heres an ilustrative example:

If $text = WinGetText ("NotePad1","") = "Whatever" Then
MouseClick ("left"´,$text,$text,1,)
End If

This code i know that will NOT work but its just so u guys have an ilustrative example about what i want to do.

I want that when WinGetText Searches NotePad1 and Finds the word "Whatever" The MouseClick aplication Clicks on top of the word "Whatever". :P

Thanks in advice....

Atleast ani one know how to put a $string in mousecoords? like

sleep (5000)
$text = WingetText ("Notepad","Clickme")
If WingetText ("Notepad","")=$text Then
MouseClick("left", $text,$text, 1)
EndIf

I cant figure out how to put $text on the mouse coords.

btw that code recognices the text and all but the mouse moves to coods x=0 y=0 instead of the coords that the actual text is.

You trying to do something that doesn't exist. Something like TextGetPos() or something. There's no way with the current functionality to be able to do such a thing. You may want to learn how to create an OCR to find the desired text, then once found show you where it was found, but you can't use a string of characters as the coordinates for MouseClick() that's just common sense.
