Embedding in VB is a must, Here's an app to create code...

by smaxor on Mon Jan 16, 2006 11:26 pm

in a flash.

check out


You just take your finished macro and cut and paste into a box and it will produce the VB code for you. It will also give you the basic code to put behind your action button.

I built in help as well.

This should be able to get you from a finished macro to embedded VB program which you can compile and has no need for a IM macro in 30 sceonds or less.

If you redistribute anything this is a must so people can't take your macro code. Let me know what you think.


P.S. And it's free! Let me know what you think.

We also use it :wink:

PS: If you can provide us with the source code, that would be great. You can contact us directly at support2 AT iopus.com

One thing I noticed is that if you nee a double quote in your string it doesn't put it like it should with a "" so be aware of that. I'll fix it in a few days

Hi smaxor, nice little tool :-) Many thanks!

Some ideas to add:
- to fill text into CONTENT: empty strings in text must be converted into <SP>
- adjustable variable name instead of fix "TempMacro"

That would be great ...

Thanks for the response bem, you should be able to change the macroname right now. Just type the one you want bfore you hit the button. This was a must because often you're runing 20-100 macros in one program, and they cna't all have the same name. I have a version for .NET that saves your macroname when you quit and restart. Also it fixes the problem with quotes and replaces a single quote with "". As for the space thing can you elaborate a little more? are you talking about? if you put a macro in that looks like;

Help me understand that content part a little if you would. I've not run into that issue yet. Can you give me a little more detail of why how you'd use it?

Once I get your issues worked out I'll put the new version on my server.

Yes very good utility, that would be well if IOPUS required the authorization of smaxor, to include it in the installation package....

distribution with Smaxors code or just distribution

by 660 on Wed May 03, 2006 12:29 pm

Hey Smaxor,

Great code! Using it and loving it!

Quick question for Smaxor and all of you who are distributing iMacros this way.

I use Smaxors code plus some mods to write to a txt file and then let the macro loop through it. Problem is, 'unregistered' can't loop through more than three rows.

I put my license in the exe that installs my version of iim. Any of you seen this? Really limits what you can have your clients do.

Great tool, never knew I can hide my script within vb, a great add on would be a C#.NET generator or an option between VB and C# :lol: . Thanks A Lot!

Thanks for the responses everyone. I have the version with a few of the errors that I mentioned before all finiished. I'm putting together a website and will have it posted in a couple of days.

With regards to C# I don't program in it. I only program in VB and PHP. So if you want to give me an example of some C# formatting vs. VB I'll be happy to add it.

Since it appears that this program has been abandoned by the original developer, I have re-created this program, and will be distributing it. Please list any features that you would like to see added to this program. My goal is to add some or all of the following features:

    -Choice of programming language
    -Ability to add macro code from a list

I'm looking forward to receiving input from everyone.
