How can I do to get the specific handle of TCurrencyEdit on another program?

I need this handle, to use the message WM_GETTEXT to retrieve your content.

I found many examples in the web, but all lists all the windows handles, an I need to retrieve the specific handle of TCurrencyEdit.

Any idea?

Hi, have you tried something like this?

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
hForm, hEdit :HWND;
begin
 hForm:=FindWindow(nil,'TestApp');
 if hForm<>0 then begin
   hEdit := FindWindowEx(hForm, 0, 'TCurrencyEdit', nil);
   if hEdit<>0 then
      ShowMessage('Found!');
 end;
end;

'TestApp' is of course your other's application's window title.

len,i:Integer;
aText: String;
begin
 hForm:=FindWindow(nil,'TestApp');
 if hForm<>0 then begin
   hEdit := FindWindowEx(hForm, 0, 'TCurrencyEdit', 'CurrencyEdit2');
   if hEdit<>0 then begin
      len := SendMessage(hEdit, WM_GETTEXTLENGTH, 0, 0)+1;
      SetLength(aText,len);
      SendMessage(hEdit, WM_GETTEXT, Len, longint(aText));
      ShowMessage(aText);
     end;
 end;
end;

Where CurrencyEdit2 is the Name of the edit you_re looking for.
