How do I access controls in another application?

P: n/a
I want to be able to get the text of a label in another application. The
application was not written in .Net. How can I do this in VB.Net? Is it
something related to the Window Handle?

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks, but I'm not planning on signing up for a pay site to get the
solution. That's kind of why you post on a public newsgroup. It does look
like it would have helped, though.

Anyone have a solution they can share for free?

Well i guess you never looked at it that hard cause there is code there that
works and gets the label caption and its name.

Should i even be posting this ? :)

Nope. This is the VB.Net forum. That code was written in VB6. Isn't there
anything in the framework to help me here?
