Does anybody know how to get any text that is under the mouse cursor? I saw it working on the Babylon transtalator and other translators. 10x in advance, nexus.

You can look at Vom-Bonjour's Get&Set source... It's on Iczelion's website... I don't know if it's exactly what you want, but it can be a good start... Happy coding... Read.

babylon, imo, uses some OCR algorithm (like scanners do) since it can read text from images as well. i'm not 100% sure but it looks like it. anyway, if that is the case, it's not as simple as calling one API function to get the text...

Maybe you could use WindowFromPoint and then get the control's caption if you don't need no ocr.
