An Actionaz script is made of actions that are sequentially executed.
Every action has:
You can specify a pause before and after the execution of the action, so as a maximum execution duration.
The line number or the label allows you to specify the targeted script line of a position change. (goto)
A label allows you to set a fixed position in the script as the line number can vary.
To define a label, double-click on the left part of the action line. Entering no text removes the label. Even if a label exists it is still possible to use the line number to identify an action.
Input parameters (purple background) can be of different types and can also be empty. In that case the default value will be used.
Output parameters (yellow background) allows you to retrieve data after the action has been executed. This data is stored into a variable whose name is the value of the output parameter field.
Some parameters are common to every action:
Exceptions are events that can be triggered during the execution of an action.
Most of the time these are the result of an error in the action parameters. An exception is also thrown if the maximal execution time of an action is exceeded.
Depending on the parameters chosen, an exception can interrupt the script execution, skip the current action or jump to another script line.
It is also possible to enter a comment to help identifying what an action does.
Each action can also have a background color. This can help visually identifying a group of actions. Select one or more actions and choose "Action color" → "Set action color" or press Ctrl+E to set the background color.
