I have edited the post to include the CIM.
Code: Select all
iMacros Browser version 9.00.2379'
OK for your FCI...
(I won't even react next time you open a Thread if you don't mention this Required Info...)
And you could still finish your previous Thread a bit neatly by responding to this other User who tried to help you and by mentioning how you solved your Pb... Obviously by switching to the iMacros Browser... (It doesn't work very motivating to try to help Users if they don't follow up on their Threads / answer Questions / react to Suggestions / eruct a mini-Thanks / share their Solution...
But hum, before going to your current Qt/Pb, I find your FCI interesting for some other Thread
in which iMB v10 crashes on Win10 and I thought that only iMB v11 could work on Win10 but you demonstrate the contrary... I would be interested to know if you did a clean Install of Win10 and then (re)installed iMB v9 (but the logical step would have been to then install iMB v11 I would think), or if you upgraded to Win10 from a previous OS where iMB v9 was already installed and I would like to know from which OS (Win7 / Win8.x), as you didn't mention your OS (Grrr...!!!) in your previous Thread...?
OK, about your Question, hum...!!! I can think about a few things...
1- If you were using the iMacros for FF Version, you can trigger at the beginning of your Macro a 'F8' using the EVENT Mode that will close the iMacros Side-Panel and you can issue another one a bit later or at the end of the Macro that will toggle the Side Panel open again. But the EVENT Mode is only available for the iMacros for FF Add-on or since recently for the iMacros Browser v11.
And you won't be able to prevent the User from pausing the Macro to toggle manually the Side Panel open again.
2- You could have your Users launching their Macro from a .BAT File. With the iMacros Browser, you have a Command Line Parameter that allows you to launch the Browser minimized to System Tray and maybe with or without an Icon, I don't know if it's then possible to maximize the Browser manually.
3- The Macro in your previous Thread was an '.iim' Macro. You could convert it to an on the fly created Macro in a '.js' and play with the 'SHOWSTEPS' Command to hide the Macro. But that won't prevent a Techie User from opening your Script and commenting out the first Line...
4- You could try playing the Macro from a (Base64 converted Macro to) Bookmark. I'm not sure if the Content of the Macro is then visible or not.
5- There is at least one Thread on the Forum where the User integrated his Macros (Base64 Encoded) to a Web-Page from which Users could launch some Macro from just a Click on a Link or Button. And I think Users didn't even need to have iMacros (Add-on) installed, it was running on the Server. (Not completely sure about that anymore...)
6- There are several Threads on the Forum about obfuscating your Code. I even read a few months ago on some other Forum sbd who claimed they were able to compile a Macro into an . EXE for that Purpose, but I didn't investigate any further...
7- Still from a . BAT File, either from the same . BAT File or from a second one, you could minimize the iMacros Browser every 200ms.
8- Oh...!, and maybe the most obvious Solution, I think it is possible from the iMacros Browser to encrypt your Macros, ah-ah...!
Well, good luck, I would say... Maybe sbd else comes up with some other/better Solution(s)...
