Possible to read vars from other programs?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to read variables from other programs?

For example:

I have 7 programs running 24/7 and instead of maximizing the windows to look at certain variables. I want to create 1 screen that would have all the variables i need from the other programs. Is this possible? or do i need to look into something more technical? Thanks

Very possible, but you will have to learn some about memory.

Take a look at the memory link in my sig. It shows how to get and track a value from memory. You will be doing the SAME thing, just with a different pointer=)

Edit: Or just use ControlGetText if that would work on those screens as well. May be easier=)

Ryan,

If the variables are displayed on the application GUIs, then you can use something like this - open NotePad and type in something and then run this script:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <GuiEdit.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 480, 480)
GUISetState()

$hWnd = ControlGetHandle("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1")
GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, _GUICtrlEdit_GetText($hWnd))

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

It also works if the GUI is minimised. Use the Au3Info tool to get the control ID parameters.
