Getting text from text & password boxes

I am trying to write a program that will extract text from text boxes [normal and passworded (with *s)].


How do I do this? The program intends to read text from other applications.


This is part of my plan of writing a program to automate dial-up connections.

The users need not press enter or click connect.


My program would do the dial-up and would send the username and password by extracting them from the boxes in the dial-up window.

    Call GetWindowText() using the window handle of the controls.
