I use the WM_GETTEXT in a SendMessage instruction to retrieve all text from a screen control, but this doesn't work when pointing or clicking into MS Word or MS Internet Explorer. How do I get the text from these controls? Is there an easy way?

This seems to be the right direction, it even indicates the solution to other problems that I have. Therefore, I give the points now and creates a new question, because I see that I need to learn about automation and OLE in Delphi.
