i have a difficult one...
i'm trying to get the selected text from any window (not my form)
i tried WM_GETTEXT and all the others in the SendMessage group, but it works only on specific text boxs... (not working on microsoft office for example)
i also tried to use the MSAA (Microsoft Active Accessibility) to get the text, but this one also brings the text only from some windows..(also not working on microsoft office)
the only thing that is working for me is to use the clipboard (emulate CTRL+C at the active window), which works fine, unless you are working with the microsoft office (or any other multi-clipboard program) and then the user sees all the copying that i do...
i know it can be done, babylon dictionary takes the clicked text from any window, if anyone knows how they might do that please let me know..
if anyone knows how to do it without knowing how babylon does it, please let me know too
thanks in advance,
