I want to code in VB2008 a module that 1) locates a handle for a specific running windows app then, using that handle, 2) read the contents of the whole window or (better) specific control data. The VB app will then parse and resend the collected string to another app. Pretty much a "Windows Scraping" job. I've been unable to find any application of FindWindow, (), gettext, or sendmessage() functions to completely work. Some of the samples I try seem only compatable to earlier VB's
