Retrieve Start Button Text

Recommended Posts


If anybody reads this, tell me what happens:

MsgBox(0, "Start Button Text", ControlGetText("", "", "[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd; CLASSNN:Button1; ID:304;]"))

Thanks Bowmore! Why didn't I manage to do it?

I'm not sure you really mean you didn't understand the difference, but if so:

Your example had the CLASS specification for the window "[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]" run together with the CLASSNN spec for the control "[CLASSNN:Button1]".

Bowmore properly separated the parameters for the ControlGetText() function.

Sorry for the redundant explanation if you already had that.
