Read text from a Program

Recommended Posts

eagle4life69

I found a program that allows me to use my Webcam as a barcode reader (I need to catalog my DVD's) I want to read the numbers that it gives me so I can actually use it. As it stands the numbers are not allowed to be copied only viewed I want to get these numbers and paste them into the clipboard. I have having a problem getting the numbers all of the ocr or Screen scrapers are not all that easy to use. Can someone please help. have they come up with a way to do this as easy as possible?

Here is a link to the program so you can DL it and see what you think

Number 4 is the part where the Barcode numbers are shown.

PLEASE HELP.

ControlGetText() doesn't work I assume?


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.

I have tried that and All I get is blank in the Msgbox so I figure that isn't working. The text is not highlightable so I am so confused I think I will need to do some sort of screen scraping
