I am using visual basic and i have seen this text box that prevents auto subscriptions. It is the one with the funny text that is sometimes hard to read with bent letters and stuff. How do i go abou reading the text in that text box? Tell me what i need or just point me in the right direction. Thanks!

First: don''t be doing stuff that''s stupid (say auto-subscribing to annoy people). Although this is an interesting task, don''t be annoying.

It''s not a text box (it''s a image - unless they were stupid and screwed up) meaning that you can''t just read the text. (If it was a true text box than one could write it in just a few lines of code in any Win32 app!)

Assuming they did it right, you''ll have to copy in the image and then analyze the image using some algorithm to determine the actual letters.

Regardless - they often do that thing for a reason.

Well thank you, im sorry for saying that word but that was the only way i could describe it. I dont want to auto subcribe to anything first of all. It is in a game i play and i am creating a bot for it. That is the way they make it so you cannot rest without typing in the letters that are on the image. If anyone else can tell me how to do this i will be very greatfull! Thanks
