call an vb.net application in Labview and read the contents on the screen of that application

I have one application that is developed in VB.net .I wish to call this application in Labview and read the contents on the screen of that application.Also the apllication has a "Save Button" which i need to set ON or OFF through Labview.Is this possible ?

 

This is more like GUI automation.Is there any way we can do this?

Yes, that sounds like GUI Automation to me.

 

I found this thread that might be useful to you.

 

In that thread, it mentions a tool named AutoIt.  I have seen this tool in action ... and it works well.  And its free.  And it comes with an ActiveX interface, so you could potentially program it using LabVIEW. 

 

I am guessing you could use Active-X and the built-in scripting capabilities in AutoIt to accomplish your goal.

 

Or you could just modify your vb.net app to output the results somehow (to a text file?) or expose itself via some kind of API?  That seems more elegant.
