Reading Text From aim

Recommended Posts


Hi, I have been trying to make a script that would run on my computer and would read messages I sent on aim (from my cellphone.)

I have tried "WinGetText" but it returns no text from an aim conversation.

Is there a way to do this?

I want it to read the text in the window, and if the text contains a keyword, set the following number sequence to a variable.

For example,

"Im from MadCow (12:51:23 AM): Keyword: 500"

It would see the keyword: and take the next 3 numbers.

Thanks for any help.

You may be better off looking for a plugin which can launch an exe when a certain action occurs. Pidgin has this integrated.
