I need help reading the text from a display window. The application
was created with MFC. There is a child window called LCD. This child
window, LCD, has messages "painted" to it. I am trying to get the text
of the message on this window.
WinSpy recognizes the child window but does not recognize the text
within this window. When I use GetWindowText or WMGetText using the
handle of the child window, it returns nothing.
The child window contains a cpaintdc object where the messages are
stored and then used with a MFC method to display it on the LCD, child
Any suggestions on retrieving text that is displayed onto a child
window with a cpaintdc object?
