Getting Hidden Test

3 posts in this topic

Hello Folks,

How to get hidden text in autoIt. The problem is when I use "WinGetText()". It returns visible plus hidden text.

In my scenario I have to differentiate between hidden and visible text.

Thanx,

Jinbaba

jinbaba,

Look at Opt("WinDetectHiddenText") in the Help file.

Hello M23,

Actually, I was working with "WinDetectHiddenText" option set.

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",2)
Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1)
$text = WinGetText("Untitled -", "")
MsgBox(0, "Text read was:", $text)

The problem I mentioned is how do I differentiate between hidden and visible text.

One method would be

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",2)

Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1)
$all_text = WinGetText("Untitled -", "")
Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",0)
$visible_text = WinGetText("Untitled -", "")

; hidden_text = $all_text - $visible_text

Any better elegant solution?

Thanx,

Jinbaba
