We can grab the text, or other attributes, from system tray tooltips using the following steps:

  1. Open the Process Designer and press the "Add Control" button.
  2. Press the ESC key and the UISpy window will appear.
  3. In the UISpy window we can examine the attributes of that element and see which attribute contains the information we are interested in. Add the control of the element to the control repository.
  4. Then we can use the added control along with the "Get Details of Element in Window" action to get the information we are interested in.

In the below example we are extracting the tooltip text from the "Volume" icon.
