Read window text in another window, without mosue!
I need to read text or control's text from another application's windows. My application is operating from background (hidden), and try to read other application's window text. Also there is no mouse used, so i believe i can't use mouse hook or SetCapture API... etc for this matter.
So i guess i need to capture other windows' application control's text based on some supplied screen coordinates.
In this case how to read get the windows' handle based on the coordinates?? and subsequently obtained the text?? assuming that i know the other application's name.
