capture text data from a java applet or C++ app?
hi all, i'm trying to extract data into excel from a java applet and/or c++ app in realtime as it is pushed onto my computer from the web. The java applet could be embedded within an IE browser window or a standalone window. i'd appreciate advice on any or all of these situations.
i can select the proper window using the AppActivate command.
i think i can even use mouse_events or sendkeys to click/move/type somewhere if that will help, but i'm doubtful since dragging/clicking/control-c/etc don't seem to do anything.
it has been suggested that i might do screen captures and then OCR the text to an ascii file, but that seems inelegant and too slow for my purposes.
