run imacros chrome extension from external script

Post by vardipoor.m » Sat Feb 20, 2021 2:38 pm

Hi
I use imacros chrome extension v10.1 and Windows 10 pro x64

We all know that macros can not be run from an external script, within Chrome and other browsers (the trial version).
The question is, what are the ways to run a macro inside a Chrome browser from an external script that can be used to a minimum (statements and loops)?
I read somewhere that can call a macro inside an HTML file and use JavaScript commands to control the macro. Is it possible?

I use imacros 12.6 free version and Windows 10 pro x64

I don't understand "exript" in your Thread Title... :?
Can you explain...?, or correct the Spelling...?

>

+ Your FCI is "unclear", there is no "imacros 12.6 free version", especially in connection with CR that you mention further up, => care to check again...?
You mention "imacro chrome extention in free version" in your Thread Title but your FCI doesn't mention anything at all about iMacros for CR...!? :?

>

"We all know that macros can not be run from an external script, within Chrome and other browsers.(the free version)"
Hum, care to post a Link from where you got that Info...?, or don't include me in the "we (all know)", ah-ah...! :?
- (F)CI(M) = (Full) Config Info (Missing): iMacros + Browser + OS (+ all 3 Versions + 'Free'/'PE').
- I don't even read the Qt if that (required) Info is not mentioned...!
- Script & URL help a lot for more "educated" Help...

And does this mean that in the trail version it is possible to connect to Chrome through an external script?(iim.iimopen("-cr"))

Hum, OK...:
I use

Code: Select all

imacros for chrome (trial) and Windows 10 pro x64
... but again "imacros for chrome (trial)" does not exist either, sorry...!
Simply mention your FCI with all exact Versions, I don't do any "Thinking" otherwise... :roll:

Like I mentioned, I don't do any "Thinking" until the FCI of a Qt/Thread is "clear" to me... :|

That is correct. If you want to script iMacros for Chrome or Firefox, you need at least an evaluation license for the Enterprise edition and must also install the File Access module for iMacros Extensions.

Have you searched the iMacros wiki? Specifically, have you reviewed the WebExtensions page and particularly the Command Line Support section?
