HELP! getting text in a window

3 posts in this topic

What is the best way for autoit to read text that is within the body of a window? An example would be attempting to read incoming instant messages or searching a web page for a regularly updated string.

Look in the help file at WinGetText() and ControlGetText(). To identify individual controls in a window, use the AutoIt Window Info Tool, AU3Info.exe.
