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?

Re: Is it possible to see the code/syntax?

One easy method is to click through .. File > Export > Script content However there is no styling of syntax. A method I prefer is to open the *.ascr script using XMLCopyEditor. http://xml-copy-editor.sourceforge.net/ For some scenarios you can also parse the xml (*.ascr) file using python xml.etree ...

Re: passing vars in a chain of actexec -s and -c calls

Further testing .. I see that each module can read INI file where global vars

passing vars in a chain of actexec -s and -c calls

I am experimenting with a modular approach to running a chain of Actiona scripts (like python modules). Following the structure of a python script I start with a main script main.ascr In there I write a chain of calls to scripts by running actexec -s /lib/script.ascr This leads to a list of command ...

Re: new to actiona / order processing

You do not explain what “order forms” you are trying to automate (if that is what you are attempting). And it helps others to know which OS. Probably Windows but I, for one, use Linux. Let us assume that the order form is an Excel spreadheet. In the Actiona GUI the Multi data input widget can be set...

Re: Command Prompt line

There might be simpler methods I have not yet explored but this is what I do .. 1. Create a var containing string .. e.g. cmd = "echo 'Hello World' " 2. Launch terminal window .. in Ubuntu the command is simply gnome-terminal 3. Copy var (string) into clipboard 4. Paste var into gnome-terminal 5. Hi...

Re: trouble with actioncommand

I get more predictable results by using single operators in command. /bin/grep is not a command in actiona. grep is a command. e.g. the command string example you give grep "@" /path/to/jabref.bib | sed "s/@.*{\(.*\),/\1/" | grep -v "@Comment" might be written in python script using subprocess to br...

Re: I Can not automate keys with F1-F12 in Linux Mint

Until this bug is fixed, as a workaround (only in Linux) you might run through Command object the tool xdotool and indirectly drive your F1-F12 keys. In fact I find that xdotool has many features found in Actiona and they can work together.
