Re: What is the limit of lines for "Code"

My basic problem in understanding the workflow is that I visit code site .. https://wiki.actiona.tools/doku.php?id=en:code but nowhere do I see reference to QPlainTextEdit (for example). So I find it difficult to write code blocks other than browsing through this forum (and more likely the French fo...

Re: What is the limit of lines for "Code"

That is a useful tip.
But I don't understand where/why Qt comes into play in your worlflow.
I know that the GUI actions are Qt objects but how to interact with Qt5?

Re: Iterating a Variable

Difficult to understand the workflow. I would try to copy the content in one go to avoid multiple opening of application but it seems that you cannot do this. But if you wish to key the “arrow down” a variable number of times I would create a Code object at the beginning to set a variable set var li...

Re: Image search a window in code

I am not the code developer but looking at your issue as a problem it occurs to me that you can apply Actiona to toggle off and then toggle on hardware acceleration setting during your main script. I can expand further on the idea but in theory it seems straight forward (although browser has to be r...

Re: How to direct key events to a specific window?

Actiona will serve that requirement. To add to your form entry automation experiments you might try sikuli.

Re: How to direct key events to a specific window?

But it seems that the script gets executed only once - when I press the Execute button. If the test script only minimises a window then the basic script is finished. Job done. No need to keep active or looping looking for an event. i rarely use loops since each execution of a script performs part o...

Re: How to direct key events to a specific window?

I too have used devilspie2 and xdotool. In fact you can run a command in Actiona to run an xdotool command if you wish. This sometimes reduces the number of key commands. Q. Is there a way to replace devilspie2? (Is Actiona able to match window titles?) Yes. Actiona can match window titles. Add a Wi...

Re: How to direct key events to a specific window?

It is not clear to me where devilspie2 fits into your workflow. It offers some similar features to Actiona. Why is it needed?
Can you not use the Window action in Actiona to focus on a window?

Idea: use Actiona as front end to Google Sheets

I share this idea. Instead of writing multiple code boxes in an Actiona script I am now exploring the route of importing scripts from Google Sheets. First a personal Google email account needs to be setup to access Google Drive. Create a Google spreadsheet with tables. A table might hold a series of...

Re: Open .xlsx from Detached Command

I am not a Windows user but any command in the Command box should be just the name of the application which can be opened in normal CLI (without arguments).

for example EXCEL

Or you can create an alias to launch a local application.

Re: Change Execution Window mid-running

I ask because I rarely, if ever, use the execution window.

[Later note] You are aware that in Settings there are 9 preset static locations for Execution window
and you can choose a second screen if you have one?

Another option (other than Window Move) is to put the Execution window into background.

Re: Change Execution Window mid-running

I don't know why you need to move the execution window but I ran a test. Opened a simple message box with execution window open. In my Ubuntu command line I ran devilspie to grab information. There must be an equivalent tool in Windows. ~ devilspie Window Title: 'Actiona'; Application Name: 'Actiona...

Re: external procedures

Currently Actiona does not allow multiple sessions. One hack I have tried for similar problems is cloning copies of actiona and actexec binaries held in /usr/bin /usr/bin/actiona /usr/bin/actexec /usr/bin/actiona-x /usr/bin/actexec-x Then from a running session of actiona or actexec the cloned binar...

Re: Ajout code HTML dans un Message Box

Error:
ReferenceError: Can't find variable: QDialog
????

Using Actiona 3.9.4 .. but also I have separately installed Qt 5.12.1 .. is this a conflict?
