The Application XRay 4.5 and later: Web Browser Functions Explained

To make scripting easy we have created the Application XRay application. We distribute this tooling with all installations of Login Enterprise. It is part of the scriptingtoolset zip you can download from the applications overview. This explanation of the Application XRay is based on the 4.5.x and higher version. 

If you want to know how to download and install the scripting pre-requisites please click here.

This section will explain all functions of the Application XRay that can be found on the Web Browser tab.

To start the Application XRay go to the ".\scriptingstoolset\ApplicationXray\" folder and start the ApplicationXRay.exe. When you start the Application XRay and click on the "Web Browser" tab you can see the below window appearing.

Note: X-Ray has been changed to react to a button click. You can click on “FIND CONTROL” to start the search of finding objects. You can hit “SHIFT” to stop searching and lock on the object you have found.

After finding an object and hitting shift the “Control Information” part of X-Ray will be locked to that control in that state. If for example a type to control changes that object this will affect the code example (only the type part) but it won’t affect the “Control Information”.
