Getting the text out of passworded boxes in another app

I am trying to write a program that will extract text from text boxes [normal and passworded (with *s)].

How do I do this? The program intends to read text from other applications.

This is part of my plan of writing a program to automate dial-up connections.

The users need not press enter or click connect.

My program would do the dial-up and would send the username and password by extracting them from the boxes in the dial-up window.

Using softice I have noticed that after a GetDlgItemText is encountered EDI points to the text for ordinary text boxes. But for passworded text boxes this is not so.

I hope somebody can help me.
