Status bar is a GUI component
located at the bottom of
the T-Plan Robot Enterprise main window. It consists of three independent fields:
The leftmost field is a public area where other application
components display logs and error messages,
The middle field provides coordinates of the most recent desktop
image update. See the Desktop
Field chapter for more.
The rightmost field displays pointer of editor caret coordinates.
Read the Mouse
Field chapter for more.
2. Desktop Update Field
field display coordinates of the last significant rectangular update of
the desktop image displayed in the desktop viewer.
Note that there are generally many update messages received from a
server. If your desktop displays a clock, there's at least one update
per second as the seconds change. Also there's a cursor which is
blinking and generating many tiny image updates. As users are usually
interested in much larger updates caused by new windows etc., the field
is set to display just updates greater
than a certain size. The default minimum displayable update is set to
10% of the image pixels. To
configure the limit go to Preferences
select the Appearance->Status Bar
tree node. Alternatively right
click onto the status bar and select Configure in the popup menu as is
shown on the following picture.
You can use the coordinates to define expected update area with the Waitfor command. If you
select Copy Coordinates in
the popup menu, the coordinates in the
required by Waitfor will be copied into the clipboard. You can then use
Ctrl+V or select Paste to paste them into your script editor.
3. Coordinate Field
This is the rightmost field on the status bar. Its content depends on
where the focus is:
When the focus is in the desktop viewer, it displays coordinates
the mouse pointer in the remote desktop and in Read Only mode also
color of the pixel under the mouse pointer in form of hexadecimal RGB
values (#RRGGBB). This is useful for the Mouse command and for
debugging of color changes. The field
can display either absolute or relative (percentage) coordinates. To
configure the display format go to Preferences
and select the Appearance->Status
Bar tree node. Alternatively
right click onto the status bar and select Configure in the popup menu.
When the focus is in a script editor,
the field displays the
caret position in the text in the form of <line
