How to handle a file download dialog from a Flash app

Post by Tom, Tech Support » Tue Jun 07, 2011 10:05 pm

iMacros currently does not automatically handle file download dialogs generated by Flash applications. However, the same technique described in Automating a tricky file upload dialog will also work with these download dialogs. Note that in this case the ONDOWNLOAD command is not needed.

If the file you are downloading already exists in the target download location, then you will also need to use a DS CMD=KEY command to dismiss the Confirm Save As dialog:

Code: Select all

WAIT SECONDS=1
DS CMD=KEY CONTENT=Y
