Welcome to the BE forums! Below I am going to guide you through making your first macro. Hopefully this will help you understand what a macro is, and the possibilities that are available with Blue Eye. This guide is for new users and beginner macro creators (Macroists). If you are an intermediate user, I am still currently working on your guide. Advanced users...I have nothing to say that you don't already know ;)

Before we start, be sure to use the restroom and grab a drink. Here we go!

1) To start off, open Blue Eye and click "Create" in the top left corner of the window. You will be brought to a screen that has two tabs at the top that say "Design View" and "Code View". Make sure that you are in the code view tab. You can continue in Design View if you wish, but that will not covered in this guide (not yet anyway).

2) If your navigation was successful, you should be looking at this screen:

3) Now type "begin" and press enter. All macro's will start with begin...and end with end. Now on line 2, type "System.Launch application("notepad", "no")". As you may have noticed already, as you are typing it brings up shortcuts to help expedite the macro creation process. At this point, your macro is now capable of starting the Notepad application. Your screen should look like this:

Image

4) Let's add a bit more to that. Press enter again to go to the next line. Type "Macro.Pause(1000)" This will ensure that the notepad application has opened in time for your next couple of commands. Executing commands too quickly can often result in inaccuracy or flat out errors. The 1000 you put in the parenthesis determines how long the macro is paused for. It is in milliseconds, so 1000ms = 1 second.

5) Go to the next line once again and type in "Keyboard.Type text(Xadal is super cool{<enter>})". This command will automatically type "Xadal is super cool" and move to the next line in Notepad. It can type whatever you tell it to. At this point, your screen should look something like this:

Image

6) Now let's add the finishing touches. Move to the next line in Blue Eye and type "Keyboard.Insert text(I accept payment in the form of Cookies and Thanks)". I am not all that certain of the difference between Keyboard.Insert and Keyboard.Type so don't ask. After you have finished typing that, move to the next line and type "end" and press enter for the last time. Your screen should look a lot like this:

Image

7) All that is left to do now is name it and save it in "Demo" or whatever section you would like.

Congratulations, you have created your first macro. Not a very useful macro, but still fun for a new user. Below there are two links; one goes to a collection of useful guides for you to look through, and the other goes to a section of the forum that explains the different features of Blue Eye and what it is capable of. I highly suggest looking at both of those links, it will make everything a lot easier when you start making more complex macros.

Guides: viewtopic.php?f=301&t=7239
Features: viewforum.php?f=137

Well that's all for now! I may add more to this guide in the future, but for now this is sufficient. If you have any more questions please let me know! There are many VIP's around the forum that can help you out if i'm not around.

Keep any eye out for the intermediate guide coming soon!

Good Luck Image

Yes it does. The create button should be in the top left of the main BE window.

I think you may have downloaded Blue Eye Webtest instead of Blue Eye Macro :|
