Clearing Seletect text Before setwintext-getwintext
#1
Hello G.
I have a dialog that stores part of the window text into a Rich Edit. It works fine BUT everytime the window text changes and the dialog gets to new window name using "getwintext" and "setwintext" the text overlaps the old text and makes it unreadable. All i want to do is enter somthing that will Clear the text in the window right before setwintext and getwintext.

Thanks G.

i think that if you use setwintext with an empty string, it'll do the trick.
