need help with ControlGetText, or ....

9 posts in this topic

Hi All, ...

I'm trying to read the number of selected movies from a control, and if the number of selected movies is 0, then I wantto do something, ... likewise, if the number is over 20, I want to do something else ...

so far I have

$text=ControlGetText("Export to HTML","","TRadioButton6")

which returns ... Selected Movies (123)

I need only the number between the paren. so I can check to see what value it is.

Can anyone be of some help? ... I need to go from

$text ="Selected Movies (123)" to ...

$numberselected="123"

thank you

Allen

Use GUICtrlRead().

Use GUICtrlRead().

Hi, thanks for the reply!

WinWaitActive("Export to HTML")

$text=GUICtrlRead("TRadioButton6",1)

When I tried the above, either with 1 or without, .... $text always shows 0

Yet the control is showing Selected Movies (123)

humble "grasshoppa" needs a little more help.

To get the number between brackets

$str= "Selected Movies (123)"
$val = stringregexp($str,"\((\d*)\)",1)
if isarray($val) then $number = $val[0]

Or maybe better use

#include <string.au3>
$number = Number(_StringBetween($text,"(",")"))

GUICtrlRead ( controlID )

controlID is the control identifier returned by GuiCtrlCreate.

Maybe GUICtrlRead($TRadioButton6).

legiom455 already can read the text as I understand it. GuiCtrlRead is only for reading controls in your own gui. To read the text in an external window the OP has correctly used ControlGetText. Edited by martin

My bad. I understand that legiom455 don't know how to read a number form a control.

The first one works, .. but fo rsome reason, I couldn;t get the second one to spit out the number, .. all I got was 0. :P
