Re: Force iMacros Browser to Open in Fullscreen

I finally got Sendkeys to work so I'll use that method. If you know how to do it with iMacros please provide it just in case.

Force iMacros Browser to Open in Fullscreen

I have automated a process to screen capture some lectures. I need to force iMacros browser to open in fullscreen mode so I know what part of the screen to capture. In other cases I don't want it in full screen mode. I am using C# and the latest version of iMacros (v8.0) on Windows 7. I tried to use...

Re: Should I buy iMacro? I have questions

I have used it for a few years and it has been invaluable. The one thing you don't mention is your intended purpose for iMacros. If all you intend to do is automate some login sequence you can use the free addin for IE, Chrome or FF. With FF you have javascript scripting ability. You can do amazing ...

Re: Working With ASPX Pages

Shortly after posting a simple solution came to me. I extracted the entire webpage and applied a simple regex to extract the random values. Works great.

Working With ASPX Pages

Using IE and IMacros Enterprise v8 on Win7. I am trying to get click an item on an aspx page (intranet). The aspx page has a tree navigation control in the left frame. There are 4 folders in the tree. The problem is the value of each tree folder is random. So this works one time: TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN...

Re: [POLL] Should IMacros Include Simple Conditional Stateme

I disagree. Keep iMacros simple. If you put in conditional statements it becomes yet another programming language. There are already too many. There is never simple conditionals. You need everything to make it useful. In addition to that I would still need to use a programming language in my iMacros...

Re: How to click an image using random X and Y from image fo

Use a scripting language. Use IMAGESEARCH to get x,y. Use a random number generator to make the click x,y. Use a DS command to click the image. Most, if not all scripting languages support random number generation.

Re: Extracting PDF pages

I think you can do that with ghostscript. You may need to convert each page to postscript and then to pdf. If not, there is another free tool called PDF Creator that has command line capability and can take .png and do pdf. Try the forum http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/forums/forum/5451

Re: Extracting PDF pages

If you just want to extract the pages as .png/.gif/.jpg use ghostscript. It is a free command line tool. Use iMacros to save the pdf file(s). You can do this with iMacros scripting.

Re: Automation for windows ?

You can look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_GUI_testing_tools I generally use Windows API calls like SetCursorPos, GetCursorPos, mouse_event, keybd_event. You call from VB, C#. I am usually only doing 10 or so different tasks so coding is easier. I have taken screenshots and used iMacros s...

Re: Scraping tables into a spreadsheet for statistical analy

You may want to consider using Excel and Excel VBA. You can scrape the data into Excel and use the Excel stats package to perform the analysis. If the data gets too big consider saving it to an Access db. Here is an example:

Re: iMacro Stops running when I dont touch the computer.

I don't have this problem but I don't deal with Flash either. I am thinking the Flash app is swallowing a DS command and hangs. The only idea I have is to make each DS command in a separate macro and issue a Play command for each. This way you may be able to isolate the DS command causing a problem ...
