get text of SysListView32(L VS_OWNERDATA+LV S_OWN ERDRAWFIXED) items from other applications

2 New Member
Hello. I apologize in advance if I created the topic in the wrong place, because I think that my task is directly or indirectly related to WinApi. I will describe the task:
I am programming an imitation of manual work in applications for working on financial markets (Metatrader 4 and 5). I use AutoIt for this. I need to read the text of the SysListView32 elements. I wrote the following code for this purpose.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. #include <WinAPI.au3>
  2. #include <Memory.au3>
  3. #include <ListViewConstants.au3>
  4. Local $pid=        ; here i write id of needed process
  5. Local $hwnd=      ; here i write handle of SysListView32 
  6. Local $maxtext=    ;here i write max number of chars 
  7. Local $hprocess=_WinAPI_OpenProcess($PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS,False,$pid)
  8. Local $plv=_MemVirtualAllocEx($hprocess,Null,$maxtext+60,$MEM_COMMIT,$PAGE_READWRITE)
  9. Local $rectext=DllStructCreate("char ["&$maxtext&"]")
  10. Local $lv=DllStructCreate($tagLVITEM)
  11. $lv.Mask=$LVIF_TEXT
  12. $lv.Item=0
  13. $lv.SubItem=0
  14. $lv.Text=$plv+60
  15. $lv.TextMax=$maxtext
  16. _WinAPI_WriteProcessMemory($hprocess,$plv,DllStructGetPtr($lv),60,Null)
  17. _SendMessageA($hwnd,$LVM_GETITEMA,0,$plv)
  18. _WinAPI_ReadProcessMemory($hprocess,$lv.Text,DllStructGetPtr($rectext),$maxtext,Null)
  19. _MemVirtualFreeEx($hprocess,$plv,0,$MEM_RELEASE)
  20. ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($rectext,1))
The problem is that the above code only gets the text if the SysListView32 has either LVS_OWNERDATA or LVS_OWNERDRAWFI XED style. But this code is not getting text of SysListView32 elements with combined LVS_OWNERDATA and LVS_OWNERDRAWFI XED styles.
Well here's the question:
How to get item text from SysListView32 from another application with both LVS_OWNERDATA and LVS_OWNERDRAWFI XED styles at the same time?
I would like to get some direction of action or example code (doesn't matter on AutoIt). Thank you.

Hi, I am trying to create a VB6 application which can act as a 'connection broker' for other applications being run on the same machine. Essentially, the broker app will setup a number of connections to our legacy system. Another system will call a Java object, which will communicate with a COM object, which I want then to query the running broker app to be given a specific object reference to a free connection, which it can then use.

In general I want to know as much as possible of what's happening in an application, that I haven't written, but...

Hello! Is it possible to make actions when working with other applications. For example: I start my application. It runs in the background with no user interface. But when I for example drag a window (to move it, a notepad, calculator, whatever) then a message box appears: "you dragged this window: notepad" or any other actions. Is it possible to do this? Could you give me a sample code for this?
