    Extraction of Data from Properties Popup


    I am looking for GUI-class tools that will extract the data values from a Properties box.


    My goal is extracting this information in a text format suitable for putting into a spreadsheet.



    Any thoughts will be appreciated.

    Something like this?
    Command Line Utility FileList | JAM Software

    FileList is a command line utility providing a list of files of the selected path in the CSV format. The list includes the file name, the size, the file path, the last access and change date, date of creation etc. You can easily import all results to a spreadsheet or database. FileList runs on any current Windows operating system starting with Vista.

    Very cool! I found a video for the OP to follow.

    How is Filelist going to get that data from a Properties dialog?

    Thank you for your question.

    It gets the information required accurately, but not using the GUI.

    A GUI-based apprach would appear to require Optical Character Recognition.

    If you wish to collect the information from the dialogue on the screen, then you need a screen OCR program such as
    capture2text (free). However that is a slow manual operation, and subject to the vagaries of resolution, character accuracy. Post processing of the data would then be required to separate the fields.

    Example of capture from the above- here you can see the region highlighted for capture:

    - note the errors in the text output:

    Locau‘on: C:\Users\mikeflDocuments Size: 228 KB (234,245 bytes)

    Now @Ztruker: your challenge: how would you post process that to meet the requirements stated?

    Note: capture2text has a good set of command line options, so an image - as proposed above- can be OCR'd simply by adding a context menu option using capture2text, producing a text file.

    However, this would be subject to the issues I've shown above.

    Because I anticipated these limitations I chose not to answer the question as literally stated, but rather offered a faster and more accurate solution.

    Mike,

    What properties do you want to extract into your spreadsheet?

    What a mixed up bag of nonsense!
    Try3 gives the best response ... a question to the OP.
    What are you trying to accomplish?

    That question needs to be answered.

    Did you read the initial post? It's pretty straight forward:

    Alright, your point is taken. The OP wants a GUI Metadata Extractor. I scoured the net for GUI based applications but most ended up being command line. But I found this one that looks promising! Maybe... I have not run this app on my system so I have no input there. But it is a GUI as your post pointed out.

    ExifToolGUI for Windows v5.xx

    Scroll down to Requirements and Preparations and under 2. ExifToolGUI The download link will be there. Click the GIF image for a representation. ``To A Small Extent`` of the GUI. But there is so much more when you scroll through the link above. I hope this helps the OP out.
