Monitoring a text

Postby Betty on Thu Aug 21, 2014 2:39 pm

I am looking for a macro software that will monitor text within a specific window. If a specified text appears in the window it should launch a specific URL in a browser. Can your software do this?

Yes WinTask is able to capture a text within a window, test if it's the desired text, and if yes launch an url. Doing that in a loop will do the monitoring. One limitation : while the url is launched, the text is not captured (the script executes in sequence) - as soon as the url has finished loading, the loop goes on and so the monitoring goes on.
