An application to read from another application

  • 13 years ago

    I have written a program that analises a running application and displays information on its current state, however in order to read information from the application I have had to use 'print screen' to save an image of the application at the present point in time, then open paint, paste the image, save the image to a file which my program then accesses. This is a very lengthy process, and I would like the application to analise the running program in real time, rather than just in one state.

    Can anyone point me towards an example which does this more smoothly, or the relevant commands I may wish to use to obtain the result I am hoping for?

    In order to clarify what I mean an example.

    There is a application which displays a bunny rabbit hopping around the window. My application would display the coordinates of this rabbit at any one time. Currently it takes 10 seconds in order to do the print screen, paste, save and load, during this time the rabbit moves, making my results useless.

    Hope this makes sence.
