What feature is this?

Post by mknoll1 » Mon Feb 04, 2008 8:53 pm

I was looking over the instructions on http://wiki.imacros.net/Upgrading_to_Version_6

and I noticed this link:

If you use iMacros for Firefox you can run the macro directly from this link.
http://run.imacros.net/?code=VVJMIEdPVE ... oNCg%3D%3D

That allowed for the running of a macro directly from a web link.

This has interesting possibilities for my application. Can you tell me where to find additional documentation on how to set this up?

When you use this feature is the script file downloaded at run time? If so is it still possible to provide variables to th script when it runs? Our application is actively being used by over 100 customers many of which use the same script. Our problem is that when a website changes we have to E-mail a new script to each customer. This presents a huge issue for support especially on days when the most common scripts fail. If we could distribute the scripts at runtime then our support load would be greatly diminished and we would have happier customers.

The script is inside the link, behind the code= parameter.

Not yet, but there is a workaround. If you create the script on the fly (as described in post http://forum.imacros.net/viewtopic.php?t=3604 ) you can set the values directly in the macro.
