Code Wizards Make Automating Tasks Even Easier in Macro Scheduler Version 13

November 21, 2011

SHAFTESBURY, England, Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — MJT Net Ltd, the leading global provider of Windows automation and scripting solutions, announced the release of Macro Scheduler Version 13. The new version introduces code wizards that make it easier to automate tasks faster, with less coding. It also offers 32 new script functions, faster event handlers, custom error handling, more interoperability with 64-bit applications, statistics about how macros are being used, greater control over hot keys, and user interface improvements.

“We developed code wizards to help the many people who are new to automation, so they would find it simpler to get started automating tasks,” said Marcus Tettmar, CEO of MJT Net. “We discovered that reducing the need for scripting code is just as useful to experienced developers. They appreciate the ability to be even more efficient with their time.”

“Image Recognition is a key function, but it’s time-consuming to set up and it can be hard for newbies to get right. With the new wizard, it’s so streamlined – 3x faster for me – and painless that I’m going to use it much more often,” says Antonius Momac of TriplePoint Technologies. “There are so many awesome improvements in Macro Scheduler 13. I am constantly discovering new clever functions and integrated tool/builder add-ons. It’s like getting a Porsche 911 for the price of a Honda Civic.”

The 32 scripting enhancements in Version 13 include the ability to search for objects on the screen, return the location, and send keystrokes even when the objects don’t have focus. Users can now read data from an Excel file even if they don’t have Excel installed on the computer, and can create their own error-handling routines. Event handlers are faster, more types of event handlers are available, and users can create custom event handlers.

Statistics are now available to help determine when a macro was last run, how many times it has been executed, how many lines were executed, total elapsed run-time, and the average time per line. “We included a simple ROI calculator to provide a way to estimate how much time and money the macro has saved the company,” added Tettmar. “This is a powerful way to demonstrate the significant contribution macro writers are making to their organizations.”

Version 13 is shipping now. A complete list of enhancements is available at http://www.mjtnet.com/v13relnotes.htm. Videos showing how the code wizards work can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/mjtnet.
