Interactivity

Description

AutoMate includes numerous interactive related activities that can impersonate object selection or any form of desktop interaction that one would normally perform manually. The Move mouse to object activity simulates moving the cursor to a specific object or control in a window. The Press activity simulates moving the cursor to an object and clicking that object all within one step. Such activities communicate with the target control natively, therefore, the window where the control resides is not required to be in the foreground for the event to occur. Other activities such as Get text and Set text allows you to easily extract text from and input text to a specific window on your desktop. Use these activities combines with the Input activities to automate simple to complex GUI related operations.
