This is what I see in the Au3info tool.I'm able to get the Handle too.

What i need to know is - Is this class any List view?

Will I be able to access any data from this type of class?

Thanks a ton for your patience and response

Not having any idea what a AfxWnd42s class control might be, I gave it a Google and came up with this post:

Those Afx window classes were custom classes distributed with early versions of MFC, before the "Common Controls" concept was introduced.

Many people have tried to "read" text from them but you CAN'T, not with messages anyway!

They're almost certainly owner-drawn - the text is not delivered by messages, it's "hand-drawn" into the window's DC

Is this a pretty old legacy-app?

:whistle:

This will most likely be too late for the original poster, but may help somebody searching the archives:

dealing with another legacy application, i seem to be able to read the contents out of AfxWnd42s controls using textcapturex by Deskperience Software.

i am still having problems reading the content out of those pesky Afx:400000:8:10013:b1010b and similar controls.

Hth,

Hth,

Nice find. Also SnagIt comes with a COM server as well.
