Welcome to th eAutoIt Forums :)

I'm not sure what you mean, but perhaps you need

$text = WinGetText("WIndow Title")

If not you need to explain a bit more.

The second parameter is window text to use if more than one window titles match the first parameter. It is part of the window ID, nothing to do with the control. If you want to specify it with a variable, then you need to declare it and give it a value before using it:
$sTitle = "Window Name"
$sText = "XXX"
$sContText = ControLGetText($sTitle, $sText, 'static11')
MsgBox(64, "Result", "Control text = " & $sContText)

Shyron..

You don't want to display $sText.. u want to display $sContent

see, if I understand correctly what u get from WinGetText is what u want to display in msgbox..

So first put it in a variable.. $sContent

And then use that variable in ur msgbox..

LIke this:

$sContText = ControLGetText($sTitle, "", 'static11')
MsgBox(64, "Result", "Control text = " & $sContText)

$Title is the name of ur window.. which u can get from Autoit window info tool..

Don't forget to replace "Your title" with window title.

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode",2)
$CONTENT = ControlGetText("Your title","","Static9");Put the window title
MsgBox(0,"Content",$CONTENT)

That's not true. My code displays $sContText, not $sText, in the MsgBox(). Once again, $sText is window text, not control text, used help identifying the window. It is optional and can be left empty if the title is enough to ID the window:
$sTitle = "Window Name"
$sText = ""
$sContText = ControLGetText($sTitle, $sText, 'static11')
MsgBox(64, "Result", "Control text = " & $sContText)

Note again that what gets displayed in the MsgBox() is $sContText which was retrieved from the control.

but why is it empty?

look i made a screenshot

You can see that there is "connected" not nothing

The control in your screen shot is Static9 vice Static11, but that is an easy adjustment to make:
$sTitle = "Window Name"
$sText = ""
$sContText = ControLGetText($sTitle, $sText, 'static9')
MsgBox(64, "Result", "Control text = " & $sContText)

The text "Connected" should be read into $sContText and displayed by the MsgBox() if the window title matches. If the window title did not match, or matched a different instance with the same title, then you get nothing back.

Some error checking will help detect that:

$sTitle = "Window Name"
$sText = ""
If WinExists($sTitle, $sText) Then
    $sContText = ControLGetText($sTitle, $sText, 'static9')
    If @error = 0 Then 
        MsgBox(64, "Result", "Control text = " & $sContText)
    Else
        MsgBox(16, "Error", "Failed to get control text.")
    EndIf
Else
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "Did not match window.")
EndIf
