Please help me how do i capture or copy text under the cursor without selecting it.

The text might be on a webpage or an application.

I just hit tab to go to the next column which has text and those text need to be copied into clipboard.

Please help me out as i am struggling to build the perfect script.

hi

for getting the text from a windows control you can use "ControlGetText"

$classlist = WinGetClassList("title", "")

$controls = StringSplit($classlist, @LF)

For $y = 1 To $controls[0]

$t = ControlGetText ( $Selected, "", $controls[$y] )

MsgBox(0,"",$t);

Next

for the webpage : it is now easier to load with the _ie functions and get the text from

_IEBodyReadHTML() directly..
