On any window that opens with error need a way to copy or print just what i want

Hi,

On any window that opens with error need a way  to copy or print just what i want

Need a option to print the box or copy the content.As not all the windows have the ability to let copy the contents.But we can always take a print scree.But need to copy the data.

Not all windows will allow you to copy the text alone that is in them period you would have to reprogram custom controls(forms) and replace each one to fix it.  Use the alt-prnt/scn saves space and is more direct then just print-screen

When you say a window with an error.. do u mean a pop-up?
If so .. you should be able to see it on the Application Event log.. as Application Popup

Using print screen will capture the entire desktop which you can paste into wordpad or word or paint.  Using ALT and Printscreen at the same time will capture ONLY the active window which again you can paste into wordpad/word/paint.

I truthfully dont think you will ever find an application that can scan text on a message box, but I could be wrong.

Hi Sharath, you can try SnagIt, it is not free, but it has the ability to capture a region to window (same as print screen) and object to window, which obtains the handles within windows and can get specific text areas....
