Example

The following example demonstrates how to use Visible property in scripts:

JavaScript, JScript

function SearchCharacter()
{
 var proc, dlgCharacterMap, checkAdvancedView, editSearchFor;
 // Launch charmap.exe
 WshShell.Run("charmap.exe");
 
 proc = Sys.Process("charmap");
 dlgCharacterMap = proc.Window("#32770", "Character Map");
 checkAdvancedView = dlgCharacterMap.Window("Button", "Ad&vanced view");
 editSearchFor = dlgCharacterMap.Window("Edit", "", 2);
 
 // Activate the advanced view if the search box is invisible
 if (editSearchFor.Visible == false)
 {
  Log.Message("The search box is invisible.");
  checkAdvancedView.ClickButton(cbChecked);
 }
 // Search for the character
 editSearchFor.Keys("A");
 dlgCharacterMap.Window("Button", "Sea&rch").ClickButton();
}

Python

def SearchCharacter():
  # Launch charmap.exe
  WshShell.Run("charmap.exe")
  proc = Sys.Process("charmap")
  dlgCharacterMap = proc.Window("#32770", "Character Map")
  checkAdvancedView = dlgCharacterMap.Window("Button", "Ad&vanced view")
  editSearchFor = dlgCharacterMap.Window("Edit", "", 2)
  # Activate the advanced view if the search box is invisible
  if editSearchFor.Visible == False :
    Log.Message("The search box is invisible.")
    checkAdvancedView.ClickButton(cbChecked)
  # Search for the character
  editSearchFor.Keys("A")
  dlgCharacterMap.Window("Button", "Sea&rch").ClickButton()

VBScript

Sub SearchCharacter
Dim proc, dlgCharacterMap, checkAdvancedView, editSearchFor
  ' Launch charmap.exe
  Call WshShell.Run("charmap.exe")
 
  Set proc = Sys.Process("charmap")
  Set dlgCharacterMap = proc.Window("#32770", "Character Map")
  Set checkAdvancedView = dlgCharacterMap.Window("Button", "Ad&vanced view")
  Set editSearchFor = dlgCharacterMap.Window("Edit", "", 2)
 
  ' Activate the advanced view if the search box is invisible
  If (editSearchFor.Visible = false) Then
      Log.Message("The search box is invisible.")
      checkAdvancedView.ClickButton(cbChecked)
  End If
  ' Search for the character
  editSearchFor.Keys("A")
  dlgCharacterMap.Window("Button", "Sea&rch").ClickButton()
End Sub

DelphiScript

function SearchCharacter;
 var proc, dlgCharacterMap, checkAdvancedView, editSearchFor;
begin 
 // Launch charmap.exe
 WshShell.Run('charmap.exe');
 
 proc := Sys.Process('charmap');
 dlgCharacterMap := proc.Window('#32770', 'Character Map');
 checkAdvancedView := dlgCharacterMap.Window('Button', 'Ad&vanced view');
 editSearchFor := dlgCharacterMap.Window('Edit', '', 2);
 
 // Activate the advanced view if the search box is invisible
 if editSearchFor.Visible = false then
 begin
  Log.Message('The search box is invisible.');
  checkAdvancedView.ClickButton(cbChecked);
 end;
 
 // Search for the character
 editSearchFor.Keys('A');
 dlgCharacterMap.Window('Button', 'Sea&rch').ClickButton();
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function SearchCharacter()
{
 var proc, dlgCharacterMap, checkAdvancedView, editSearchFor;
 // Launch charmap.exe
 WshShell["Run"]("charmap.exe");
 
 proc = Sys["Process"]("charmap");
 dlgCharacterMap = proc["Window"]("#32770", "Character Map");
 checkAdvancedView = dlgCharacterMap["Window"]("Button", "Ad&vanced view");
 editSearchFor = dlgCharacterMap["Window"]("Edit", "", 2);
 
 // Activate the advanced view if the search box is invisible
 if (editSearchFor["Visible"] == false)
 {
  Log["Message"]("The search box is invisible.");
  checkAdvancedView["ClickButton"](cbChecked);
 }
 // Search for the character
