  1. I've since found a way to do this using an additional program. So, it is possible to activate macros by rolling the mouse wheel, but not with MacroExress alone.
  2. Hi, Does anyone know how to activate a macro when the mouse wheel is rolled up or down one position? I don't mean pressing the mouse wheel - which would be a middle button click. I mean rolling the mouse wheel like you would do to scroll a page up or down. I've searched and I'm currently thinking that this is impossible. Anyone got a novel way to do this? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
  3. Me too! It's really only limited by our imagination
  4. My company is looking into something very similar to this. We are planning on making buttons in Access that use VBA to launch ME macros. It's still in the planning stages so I can't really say how effective it is. Just search the manual for 'vba' and you can find an example of how to launch a macro using VBA.
  5. It's very easy to do this once you know the basics of MacroExpress. I'd suggest studying the help file and practising using commands such as text type and program launch. This is one of my macros that does something similar to what you want: Variable Set String %T1% from File: "Time log account manager.txt" Replace "&" with "" in %T1% Variable Modify String: Copy %T1% to %T4% Variable Set String %T2% from File: "Time log customer.txt" Variable Set String %T3% from File: "Time log job number.txt" Variable Set Integer %N1% from Position of Text in Variable %T4% Variable Modify Stri
  6. Not sure how much help this will be, but I'm also looking into how to achieve this using MacroExpress. Currently, my idea is as follows. 1. The website user (which would be one of our customers) types their order into a form on our website. 2. Upon completion, the user clicks send, and the details of their order are emailed to us in tab delimited format. 3. When the email arrives in Outlook, Outlook automatically saves the text of the email to a set folder (For example C:\Orders). I'm thinking of using the Rules feature in Outlook to accomplish this step. 4. MacroExpress is monitoring the
  7. This would be one way to do what you want: <TVAR2:01:01:a><IVAR2:01:01:2><TVAR2:01:02:FKey to pressFFCenter:Center><IVAR2:01:02:FSeconds interval between keypressesFFCenter:Center><REP3:01:000001:000001:99999:0:01:><TEXTTYPE:%T1%><DELAY:%N1%><ENDREP> Another way would be to make a macro that runs on a schedule. Check out the manaul
  8. I don't think you can toggle the spacebar up and down, however you can make the middle mouse button act as the spacebar. Mouse activation - entire screen - middle button Macro: <TEXTTYPE:<SPACE>>
  9. It's not very easy to answer your question because there are so many factors that could be involved. My first thought: is a macro already running? Only one macro can run at once. What does the ME tray icon look like when the 'Run' option stops working?
  10. Hi, Here is my humble attempt to do this. I'm not sure if it is the best way of doing it, but it works. I think it would be easy to modify it to work with more than two files. Text File Begin Process: "A.txt" Variable Modify Integer: %N1% = %N1% + 1 Text File End Process Text File Begin Process: "B.txt" Variable Modify Integer: %N2% = %N2% + 1 Text File End Process If Variable %N1% > variable %N2% Variable Modify Integer: Copy %N1% to %N3% Else Variable Modify Integer: Copy %N2% to %N3% End If Variable Modify String: Save %T10% to Text File Repeat Start (Repeat %N3%
  11. Sometimes I get short pauses when moving around the ME editor, but the pauses are no longer than about 2 seconds. It seems to only happen when I've been working in the editor for a few hours straight. It is not connected with CPU or disk usage because when it happens both are almost idle, and I regularly defragment my disk. Guess I've just learnt to live with it. Umm...throwing Macro Express into the sea would really have a negative impact on my productivity, so I can't really agree with you on that point.
  12. I would use Print Screen, save the images as jpgs, then compare the sizes of them. Something like this... Repeat Start (Repeat 2 times) Variable Modify Integer: %N1% = %N1% + 1 Text Type: <ALTD><PRTSCR><ALTU> Delay 500 Milliseconds Clipboard Save Graphic: "%N1%.jpg" Delay 3 Seconds Repeat End Variable Set Integer %N2% from the size of file "1.jpg" Variable Set Integer %N3% from the size of file "2.jpg" If Variable %N2% = variable %N3% Text Box Display: Image is same Else Text Box Display: Image has changed End If
  13. It's not the Variable Modify integer commmand that takes a long time, it's the copy from the clipboard. You should use control commands if you want it faster. Something like: <LAUNCHDEL2:2:00C:\WINDOWS\NOTEPAD.EXE><WAITWIN2:000010:000000:Untitled - Notepad><TEXTTYPE:333><GETCONTROL:01:NOTEPAD.EXE:002:NotepadUntitled - NotepadEdit333><VARGETCONT:1:1><TMVAR2:05:01:01:000:000:><NMVAR:01:01:1:0000001:2:0000100><TEXTTYPE:<CTRLD>a<CTRLU>><TEXTTYPE:%N1%>
  14. Hi, I think you just need to use /mFilePrintDefault. Try this: <LAUNCHDEL2:0:01C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\Winword.exe<PARAM>D:\BobsData\My Word\Computer\Sample Print.docx /mFilePrintDefault1><TDELAY:3><WCLS:- Microsoft Word>
  15. Cory, at the moment I am keeping about 90 'saved variables' as text files on a network drive. Are there advantages of keeping them in the registry instead? Is the registry method faster and reduces disk activity?
