Issuing commands to Windows during playback

Postby JoseMell » Mon Apr 05, 2021 10:48 am

Hi.

Using eValid, is it possible to issue commands to Windows during a playback?

If so, please give me the steps involved to complete this exercise.

Thanks in advance.

Indeed, it is JoseMell.

This can be very a convenient way to record intermediate results of send messages.

Two commands do this:

(1) SystemCall "command"

(2) SystemCallWait "command"

In either version the string "command" [which needs to be in quotes] has to be a valid command for Windows.

If the command has an error eValid will [effectively] ignore it.

In (2) eValid waits for the command to issue a completion code versus in (1) where eValid issues the command and continues running script commands immediately.

Hope this helps you with your playback scenario.
