Read a text and progress bar value of another program with known window handle

In Progress

This project consists of two parts.

Part 1) Implement function ReadWindowTexts(Handle : THandle) : String; The function receives a window handle to a visible window of another program. The function returns all the texts that it can read from the window but not the window title. For example, if there is a simple popup window Yes and No buttons and text "Would you like to restart Windows?", a call to ReadWindowTexts should return something like "Yes;No;Would you like to restart Windows?;"

Part 2) Implement function GetProgressBarValue(Handle : THandle) : Integer; The function receives a window handle to a visible window of another program. The window may or may not contain a progress bar. If it does not contain a progress bar, the function should return -1. If the given window does contain a progress bar, the function returns its numerical value (i.e. the progress).

These functions must compile with Delphi 2010 and work under Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.

Note: I am not sure whether Part 2 is possible to implement with Windows API. If you think it's impossible but you could do Part 1, say so when making your bid. I need these functions (or at least Part 1) ASAP. Do not bid if you cannot start right now.

Note 2: If you are an expert with Windows API but do not know Delphi, say so and you can still make a bid. If I would choose you, you would instruct me what Windows API functions to call and how, for example by providing pseudo code which I would then convert to Delphi code.

Hello It looks easy, however there is some notes. It's not complicated to do for popup message boxes or some other standard windows, but what's about custom windows, such as Microsoft Word or browser? It would be pret More
