Data from tooltip

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, I want get values and compare them but these values are like a tooltip.

I have a column in an application. When I mouse over the column heading I get a tooltip with different values. Now I would like collect those values and assign it to a varriable so that it would be easy for me to compare.

Getting the value from the tooltip is a problem. Attached picture for your reference. Can we get the tooltip value? Is this possible?

Thanks!

I have never seen anything that indicates the ability to read tooltips. You may be able to catch the text if it contains a label (static text field). I don't know how tooltips work. I would assume they are inaccessibly windows but I've learned not to assume things when it comes to Microsoft.

You probably need to take a look at Auto3Lib then :whistle: It has a ToolTip module that allows you to read the ToolTips from external processes.
