Hi

I think you can use GetDlgItemText() to retrieve the text from a label.

Good luck

RE: Get text from a label

What language are you programming in?  I might be able to give you an example of how to use the above.

Hi,

I'm programming in Visual Basic. If this is a big problem, you can give it to me in C++ aswell and I'll get the hang of it (I hope)

Sorry for this late reply, but I was away for a few days.

In C++ an universall method for get label text is GetWindowText what gets the caption from a window. Every controls on the forms and the forms also are windows.
