OK I will try again! Use Borland Delphi 6 compiler.

I may be talking about 'scraping' in this subject - just not certain.  With my personally created program, I am able to read data in most of the PowerSDR's  windows (FLEX-1500) but not so with SmartSDR (FLEX-6500). What is the difference in PowerDSR and SmartSDR that would prevent this?  I can get only the handle of the SmartSDR, but I can get most of the handles on the PowerSDR.

I am not a polished programmer. 

Attached is an image illustrating the capture of my FLEX-1500 current operating frequency and placing it in a window of a 'third party' program, my program, a child  window - I believe is the technical term. I do display only three decimal places in my program. It is NOT drag and drop? Use a timer, continuously running, to monitor the freq.

Is there a way to read  the same data from my FLEX-6500?

Oh yes, you want to join the API program and just read what you want from the API. Send Lori at FlexRadio dot com an email about joining the program. Screen scraping is way hard and should be reserved for getting data from an IBM 360 terminal program ;-)
