Read fieldcontent in a widowsapplication
« on: September 11, 2013, 02:03:21 am »
Hi,
I need to read the content in a field in a windowsapplication. I should put the content in a variable, and based on the value I will do different actions. What functions can I use?

I have so far only sent in values to the windowsapplication with the SendKey function - I have never read anything.

What type of field exactly? If it is a Window Control I recommend using the RoboScripter tool. Here is a nice tutorial to help get you started: http://techsupt.winbatch.com/webcgi/webbatch.exe?techsupt/tsleft.web+Tutorials+A~look~at~RoboScripter.txt

Hi Deana

It's a alphanumeric field with a dropdown see attachment.
(I hope alphanumeric is an OK word to use - I'm an old cobol/mainframe programmer and in those days we had alphanumeric and numeric fields).

I'll dig into your tutorial.

Take a look at the Roboscripter. It should be able to handle a drop listboxcontrol.
