Most strings in windows are Static Labels. I wrote a
quick script to locate this type of information. It
takes a Titlebar name as an argument but if you want a
completelist of windows it is not necessary to specify
I find this to be useful to map out windows in apps I
wish to automate as well.
For example an about text box might look like this:
handle : 1901184 type:#32770 Title:About TextPad
handle : 3670536 type:Static Title:
handle : 655798 type:Static Title:TextPad 4.7.2 :
handle : 786866 type:Static Title:Copyright ⌐
1992-2003 Helios Software Solution
handle : 786874 type:Static Title:The Sentry

handle : 1966640 type:Static Title:All Rights Reserved
handle : 1442440 type:Edit Title:
