    Egg, what do you mean by any text - are you talking about webpages?


    Is this a component called 'any text' or a specific component defined at runtime or ALL text on the page?


    One approach to this issue would be accessing the DOM the NativeWebObject or the contentDocument these give you cirect access to the page DOM which can then be manipulated with regex

    - Scripting (code snippet) only


    e.g. (untested codes)

    pagetext = Sys.Browser().Page("*").contentDocument.textContent

    allDOM = Sys.Browser().Page("*").contentDocument.all

    Alternatively to what was suggested by Lee_M, you may consider to use .text/.wText/.value property of page object. (Check using Object Browser what property exists and contains plain page text.)
