Re: Automating ComboBox while screen is locked

I've been experimenting and can't find a way to process a combobox in a Macro Scheduler compiled script. I have managed to cause text to display in the combobox using SetControlText> and UISetValue>, but the action of displaying text does not in itself cause the combobox to respond in any manner. Th...

Re: Automating ComboBox while screen is locked

NOTE: I am trying to automate a Windows Dialog that was created by compiling a separate Macro Scheduler script. I am not sure if this detail is important. Steven, I agree with you that some Macro Scheduler functionality still works while Windows is "locked". What I'm confused about is why you are a...

Re: DelArray / DelVariable

...So you can't delete the array and redefine it. Once it's deleted, it's gone. Not in my experience. Could you provide a short script sample where the array is deleted and then cannot be redefined? The following sample deletes the array "Cell" then redefines it a couple of times. You can set the I...

Re: Serious performance issue with FindImagePos

Just did my own tests on a lower performing computer and a 1920 x 1080 screen using a 20 x 20 pixel needle. I didn't actually time the event because I used a program I already had written that doesn't have a timer, but the image is discovered pretty much as soon as I pick "Process". Far less than 1 ...

Battling the Windows 10 Updates Virus

See the error message below. This started a couple of weeks ago. I have about 150 Windows 10 computers that are required by corporate policy to remain on the bleeding edge of Windows 10 updates. I have to deal with this or very similar errors 2 to 5 times a day. Sometimes a reboot fixes the issue, f...

Re: Post Compile Error

Hi Marcus, Antivirus tool accessing the file? Perhaps MalwareBytes is the culprit. I have no visibility on it and our corporate security guru does updates and configuration changes without consulting me. Sucks to be at the mercy of the empowered. Might as well be Microsoft. I have the same amount of...

Re: Post Compile Error

Thank you Dorian. It occurred to me this morning that this or something similar has happened before and Marcus couldn't initially reproduce it because he compiles from the editor and did not see the error. I compile from the main menu. If I compile from the editor I do not see an error. Also not tha...

Re: Complex Expression Length() issue?

Sorry complex expressions aren't working for you.
Aside from that I would use the Format> function for this task.

Code: Select all

Format>%.10d,TEST_ARRAY_2_0,MSN

Enhancement Suggestion

I would like a set of new functions that do what I was thinking regardless of what I wrote.
I have an immediate need for this new functionality.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of my request,
