Capture text in an Afx window

Postby Kerm on Thu Mar 13, 2014 9:58 am

I am trying to capture text in a window in my application but the Spy function will not highlight the window.

The window I want to capture is Window Afx "HOST" Edit in a complex hierarchy. Spy does not highight the window.
Any suggestions?
WriteUIA works however.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

If WriteUIA works, you can capture the different attributes for the field using GetUIAProperty. Usuaklly the NAME contains the text and so you can capture like that.

Regards.
