Read contents of another programs window?
Posted on 2002-07-27
I'm a moderately experienced VB programmer, and I know this can be done, but need to know where to start looking.
I want to write a program that can read the contents of another programs forms/windows. I know it's possible, there are tons of programs that read chat windows and email and the like in AOL.
All I need to do is grab one specific window from one specific program, and copy the text in it to a local variable so I can manipulate it.
If anyone can point me in the right direction... a webpage reference, maybe some sample code to get started, it'd be much appreiciated.
Thanks for any help...
