Example

The following example shows how to use optical character recognition to recognize text in the About dialog of Windows Notepad and post the recognized text to the test log.

JavaScript, JScript

function GetRecognizedText()
{
  var p = Sys.WaitProcess("notepad", 3000);
  if (p.Exists)
  {
    // Get the Notepad window
    var wndNotepad = p.WaitWindow("Notepad", "*", 1, 3000);
    if (wndNotepad.Exists)
    {
      wndNotepad.MainMenu.Click("Help|About Notepad");
      // Get the About Notepad window
      var wndAbout = p.WaitWindow("#32770", "About Notepad", 1, 3000);
      if (wndAbout.Exists)
      {
        // Recognize the text that the About Notepad window contains
        var recognizedText = OCR.Recognize(wndAbout);

        // Post the recognized text to the test log
        Log.Message("View all the recognized text in the Details panel", recognizedText.FullText);

        // Post portions of the recognized text to the test log
        if (recognizedText.BlockCount > 0)
        {
          Log.AppendFolder("Recognized text by blocks");
          for (var i = 0; i < recognizedText.BlockCount; i++)
          {
            Log.Message(recognizedText.Block(i).Text);
          }
          Log.PopLogFolder();
        }

      }
    }
  }
  else
  {
    Log.Warning("Notepad is not running.");
  }
}
