Using built-in Basic

Top  Previous  Next

 

Sometimes we need to make some nonstandard calculation, analyze a string or modify it according to a certain algorithm. The Basic programming language will help you in that. The Basic plugin for RoboTask is not included in the main distribution package. You can download it from the RoboTask site and install additionally.

Basic is a simple and at the same time quite powerful programming tool oriented towards both beginners and professionals. You can use a BASIC script to access user and system variables in RoboTask, as well as other tasks. The BASIC plugin comes together with the full help on the BASIC language. The installation file also includes some sample uses. The description of the Evaluate and Basic script actions, as well as the mechanism of interaction with RoboTask is described below.

Almost anyone can learn how to write small procedures in the BASIC language. The use of BASIC in tasks extends available actions beyond the set of RoboTask actions. Experienced users can use Windows APIs and third-party COM objects in their procedures written in BASIC without any limitations.
