Modules in this learning path

Learn about the global options that will help you keep your WinAutomation system running the way you want.

WinAutomation provides a wide selection of properties that enable you to configure how the platform handles each process. Using properties you can implement different behavior for each process and override the platform's global settings.

The Macro and Web Recorders can be used to automatically generate blocks of actions, based on the user's interaction with the workstation.

Conditional actions allow you to modify process actions at runtime, based on information available in the environment.

Loops are used to automate repetitive tasks by executing a block of actions multiple times.

When developing processes, you may need to re-use information in various actions. Variables act like storage bins that save valuable information when a process is running.

WinAutomation enables you to interact with any desktop or web application through controls and images. The created controls and images are stored in the repositories.

Exception and error handling is a mechanism that allows WinAutomation to handle and recover from unexpected circumstances and issues that might occur during the execution of a process.
