    How to get application \"help\" text

    I'm trying to automate the evaluation of the text within the help of an application. I'm able to get the window info, however I cannot access the actual text of the help item. The area the text appears in is a CustomWin MS_WINTOPIC1. Any ideas on how I can access the text?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Re: How to get application \"help\" text

    Most of the standard help windows are custom objects. I've used the following workaround with some Help systems. After the help window comes up, Pick the "Create bookmark" menu item, which brings up a dialog, which contains the current topic in a text field which Silk can read. It's a workaround, but it "works". If your application doesn't have "Create bookmark", try to find another dialog where you can read and verify the current topic.

    Hope this helps.
