SeeShell Scripting API
Control SeeShell from any scripting language
SeeShell includes an API to control the SeeShell desktop automation and the SeeShell Browser. With this powerful interface you can control SeeShell with any Windows programming language that supports the use of COM objects. Almost all Windows programming languages support this technology, including the free Windows Scripting Host, Visual Basic .NET, C#, Java, Perl, Python, C++, ASP, PHP, and ASP.NET. For example, you can create conditional scripts that can do anything.
With the SeeShell API, it’s easy to write scripts (in a scripting language of your choice) that allow you to:
Automate more complex workflows
- - Incorporate if/else statements in your scripts to make decisions
- - Perform multi-loop actions
- - Parse data in your scripts to perform string manipulation
- - Write scripts that incorporate many variables
- - Make complex calculations in your scripts
- - Display GUI elements such as a dialog box and ask for user input
- - Handle error conditions, enabling you to write complex scripts
We use SeeShell to automate the process of extracting data files from our financial system and process the data for use by third party reporting software. This used to be a manual process which now takes place automatically over night. Data is now available at start of business day, whereas previously the manual process took up to two ours from start of business. SeeShell made the automation of the procedure very easy and we are pleased with the functionality it provides.
