Detect if text is selected

4 posts in this topic

Hello!

I want to create a program that detects if any text is selected. The idea is to copy this text and put it in a file but I can't find a way to detect if any text is selected. I searched the forum for similar topics but I did not find anything relevant. If you have idea please share.

Thanks


I ran. I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

In the helpfile under User Defined Functions (UDF) -> GuiEdit Management: there is _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel.

Retrieves the starting and ending character positions of the current selection

#Include <GuiEdit.au3>

_GUICtrlEdit_GetSel($hWnd)

But this is for the Edit control only! Search for similar features if it's for something else then the Edit box.

Hi!

I want to get selected text from other programs like notepad or ie not from a gui control. My only idea so far is to check if the pouse cursor has changed from a arrow to a this 'I' - shaped figure but then how can I know that some text is selected? And also it won't work when I press ctrl+a and on some sites the cursor doesn't change.

Does someone have any idea?

Sleep(7000)

ClipPut("")

Send("^c")

Sleep(100)

If ClipGet() <> "" Then MsgBox(0,"You selected", ClipGet())

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
