I'm not sure about this either. Will mark this thread for Marcus.

Re: Trying to execute onClick

Those colours and XXs will help you understand xpath, and once you understand that you'll be using it all the time. I suggest creating a snippet (in the snippets tab) so you have the 4 line sample easily at hand.

Re: Trying to execute onClick

I tend to rely quite heavily on XPath because it's so versatile. ChromeFindElements>session_id,xpath,//input[@type='submit'],el ChromeElementAction>session_id,el_1,click This will help understand a little more : < input type =" submit" onclick="2KKM25268FGTR0IDC6FIL04KV4_form_submit();" value="Conti...

Re: Favorite browser for Web automation

I've actually had some very recent success with Firefox. At first, it didn't seem to be the best choice, but I was having trouble with Edge, even just manually, and the Chrome functions weren't working for me either. So I was kind of forced into using Firefox, and it turned out pretty good. So far,...

Re: wait for image and loops

My understanding is that you want to click the mouse at a given position until an image is visible. This will click at 1340,218, wait 1 seconds, then look for your r2 image. If that image is found it will exit the loop. If it is not found, it will mousemove, click, wait 1 second, and look again. Not...

Re: Favorite browser for Web automation

I don't think there's a simple answer to this, as it depends on what you're automating. Macro Scheduler 15 has functions for Chrome, Edge, and IE. So that narrows the choice to those three. MS14 didn't have the Chrome and Edge functions. But it largely relies on the site in question, and what you wa...

Good. I would expect them to run.

On my system, they don't. I'm using Windows Server 2008. What OS are you running?
Windows 10 64 bit.

Marcus,

Please take a look at my second post, specifically item #3. I think I tried exactly as you suggested.
Both of these ran from within Macro Scheduler

Code: Select all

run>msched.exe "c:\MS15\TEST_1\middle.scp"
run>c:\Program Files (x86)\Macro Scheduler 15\msched.exe "c:\MS15\TEST_1\middle.scp"

Re: Launching a script

Forgive me if I am missing a point somewhere, but why not use Macro for running an scp file, and Run for running an exe? I compiled middle.exe. Then these all ran "middle" successfully for me on 64 bit Win 10. macro>c:\MS15\TEST_1\middle.scp include>c:\MS15\TEST_1\middle.scp run>c:\MS15\TEST_1\middl...

Re: GFL_SORTTYPE

Sometimes it takes me a while for the penny to drop too. It can be hard to see the wood for the trees. It was your comparison of v14 and v15 that actually gave me the eureka moment.

Re: Looping

If all you want to do is loop your script indefinitely, a simply Label and Goto should suffice.

Re: Generating actual text from OCR process.

I think you might be mixing up the Image Recognition Wizard with the Screen OCR Wizard. Image Recognition finds (or waits for) an image on-screen, potentially to interact with. The Screen OCR Wizard generates code to look at the screen and extract text. To access the Screen OCR Wizard, click on the ...
