Hiding just the Player in Imacros Browser?

Post by rrayfrmcal » Tue Nov 07, 2006 8:44 pm

Hi Tech,

I'm using the scripting edition. How do I hide, just the player part of the IMacros Browser? I do not want the user to have access to the player part of the browser, but they do need to access the web page being displayed. I'm running a VB6 program that controls the automation.
Thanks,
Rick

Hello,

up to now, there is no such feature as to "hide" the iMacro sidebar while running the macro. But I will pass this question on to the developers.

How do you use iMacros so this feature would be helpful, i.e. why should the users be able to see the browser window at all, if they shall not interfere with the macro?

Haynes,

Thanks for the reply.

Very Often total automation is not possible. The user must enter data that is not system generated in a real time envirnment. I am using a VB6 applicaton that walks the user through a process but allows them to enter data when necessary. Hard to believe that no other users would not have already asked for this? Go figure.

I hope this is available soon as I am hesitant to deploy my app.

Thanks for the help.
Thanks,
Rick

One more thing...

Also I would like to deploy my applications created in vb 6.0.

One thing I would like the user not to do is to modify the code also...

The user can see play and edit, but it would be nice if there is like an option
not to display any of those two...

Thanks

iMacros was not developed to "restrict" the usage once a macro/script is built. But I can understand that this is important in a setting like yours (although we indeed were not asked for such features, up to now). What would be needed is essentially something like a "kiosk" mode (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiosk_software).

Hi Hannes,

Actually, just a simple option (-?) used in the same manner as the one used to hide the entire browser would work fine. Just so the user has no access to the macro's which are being controlled by the VB6 app.

Hope it does not take too long. :P
Thanks,
Rick

Not yet, I'm afraid.

Just to clarify, you can expect to see such a feature in the near future.

If other users who read this thread are also interested in this feature, please add your comment to this thread. This will help us prioritize the feature :wink:

You can write your macro by the code.
and thus the user cant see it.

iim.play("CODE:_your macro..")
