Just a question: ( Delete / Close / Hide this... )

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to read text that no , the AutoIt Window tool does not pick up... but yes , you can highlight it and copy ( clipboard it )...

Seems if you can add it to the clipboard , it's possible to read it. But I can't figure out how.

Thanks,

*Drew

It would really help us if you actually told us your issue and a description in the title. Most members don't even read topics with: "help" "question" "topic" in the topic title/description.

Lots of control types don't show their text to the window, but are easily read with the right tool (i.e. ListView). Seeing the text in AU3Info.exe is not critical; can you see the control ID? Post the results from the summary tab with the mouse over the control involved (ctrl-alt-f to freeze the display while changing tabs).

That's a Firefox browser window, and you're out of luck.

Firefox does not expose internal browser workings to other processes with a COM Object interface the way IE does. The Mozilla class of objects do not respond to standard Windows API calls. If you must automate a browser with AutoIt, then use IE with Dale's IE.au3 UDF.
