rberq Posted February 25, 2010 Report Share Posted February 25, 2010 ME does with the keyboard and mouse pretty much all that I can do with them. What ME does not do well, is what I can do with my eyes. For example, there are many forum questions about how to locate a control on a screen, when the control is not of the type where “GET CONTROL” or “CAPTURE CONTROL” will work. This is especially a problem with web forms, where the browser may format the screen somewhat unpredictably. I’d love to see a Macro Express scanning feature to simulate what we easily do by sight. This would consist of a “Capture Image Fragment” command, where you would mouse-outline a piece of the screen, and ME would save the bitmap or pixel map of the outlined area. Then at run time, there would be an equivalent “Find Image Fragment” to scan the screen and return the x- and y-coordinates of the fragment. Then you would simply move your mouse to the coordinates, click to get the text cursor there for typing, double-click if appropriate, and so on. When I searched the Internet, I found “Macro Scheduler”, sold by mjtnet. It has an Image Recognition feature that does this pretty well. Macro Scheduler can create executables that will run on any PC without the base product being installed. I am tempted to buy a copy for image recognition alone. It could be used from ME by running the executables with the Launch Program command. But it would be a lot easier to have an integrated ME feature. Does anyone know of a similar independent product that could be used with ME? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
