Tool tip Question

Recommended Posts

patgenn123

Hello all! Still a newbie, but slowly but surely getting the "simple things"

I look all around for this, but can't find it.

If a mouse is hovering over an icon that "pops up" a tooltip, can AutoIt be able to tell me(need to copy it to the clipboard) what the text of the tooltip is corresponding to what's under the mouse?

Thank you!

Pat

Yes! on mouseover, if there is a tooltip "popping up", capture the text and copy it to the clipboard.

Thanks for asking. I wasn't clear. I don't know a lot of terminology yet.

Is this tooltip from your own created GUI, or it is from external application?

ToolTip is basically a window, so you can try something like this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("Test Script", 300, 200)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Button", 20, 40, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetTip(-1, "Some ToolTip text")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI)

AdlibEnable("_CheckToolTip_Proc", 100)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _CheckToolTip_Proc()
    Local $sToolTip_Text = ""
    Local $sWinList = WinList("[CLASS:tooltips_class32]")
    
    For $i = 1 To UBound($sWinList)-1
        If BitAND(WinGetState($sWinList[$i][1]), 2) = 2 Then
            $sToolTip_Text = $sWinList[$i][0]
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
    
    If $sToolTip_Text <> "" And $sToolTip_Text <> ClipGet() Then
        ClipPut($sToolTip_Text)
        ConsoleWrite($sToolTip_Text & @LF)
    EndIf
EndFunc

it looks like this is an autoit script creating a GUI. Duh. Please forgive me, I am really trying to figure this out.

Actually, I am looking for a script for an external application.

Any other ideas for external app would be welcome.

Thanks!

Pat

Have you tried that example? it will put to clipboard tooltip text every time you hover a control that trigger tooltip (if the previouse tooltip text not the same), even in external application.

It works in the example you gave. I was surpised that the window title gives the text but obviously it does. Thanks MrNameChangedCreatoR :)

I tried it for tooltips in FireFox and a Delphi application but it didn't work for either of them. Probably they don't use tooltips_class32.
