Hi.

How do I keep the eValid browser running on the background?

Thanks

Thanks for inquiring about that, JimmieL.

If your eValid script is appropriate, then eValid will operate just fine in the background...as a minimized process.

Any window in the test sequence you're running can be minimized with the eValid command:

Minimize wid

Where the starting window is wid=0.

The caveat is that not every command can do this: there are some commands that require the desktop to operate, and when eValid in minimized mode requires the desktop, it will maximize itself in order to be able to access the desktop.

You can, however, imaging a scripting sequence like this:

Maximize wid
(Commands that require the desktop temporarily).
Minimize wid

You have to be VERY careful that two separate playbacks don't interfere with each other.

Remember: there is only one desktop.
