Can AutoIT get information from a window application such as textbox, label?

Recommended Posts



I'm just new to AutoIT. Currently I try to use AutoIT to run another simple window application which have few labels, textboxes, and one button. After entering some data on textboxes, clicking the button, a pop up will show to tell a result which is few text.

Is it possible to use AutoIT to capture labels, textboxs so that we can use AutoIT help to enter data automatically, then press button ?

Is it poosible to use AutoIT to capture the text result from pop up?

If AutoIT can do, could you please help me a bit? If you know any other way, which dont use AutoIT, please help me too.

It is very urgent for me , thank you for your viewing and your help.

Yes and Yes. Look at ControlGetText in the helpfile.

You'll want to use the AutoIT Window Info Tool that came with AutoIT to find out the ControlID.
