Recognize static text present in a window

P: 1
Hi all,

We have a legacy application and it contains static text boxes (not the proper windows static text box but just text painted on the window). I want to read this text with my own application. I'm not sure how to do it. Since the control is not standard, I cannot use WM_GETTEXT. Infact SPY++ application does not recognize any of the text. This being the case, is there any way to do it?

I want to create a function like this:
WinGetText("windowName", x1, y1, x2, y2);
Where x1 to y2 are the top left and bottom right corners of the area of the window I'm interested in. Any help is welcome.
