Can an eValid script run commands on the desktop

Postby DannyE » Fri Sep 21, 2018 12:58 pm

Good Afternoon.

Can eValid run commands on the desktop as part of a script playback?

Please tell me how.

Thanks

Thanks for asking DannyE.

There are special commands in eValid to run an external command during playback:

SystemCall "command" and SystemCallWait "command"

In either case you have to specify the command with a full path for that executable.

Also, any parameters you want to send to your command have to be included within the quotes.

The first example issues the command to the operating system and then continues on in the script.

The second example waits until the command is finished (even if it makes an error) before continuing playback.

There's no restriction of what can and can't be done.

You can even issue an eValid batch command to play back some other script, using the batch command interface:

But be careful not to issue a command that turns off your own playback activity!
