Programming features

The Macro Editor also provides programming features. A user with programming experience can add functionality to a Z and I Emulator for Web macro by creating and manipulating variables, using arithmetic and logical expressions, writing if-then-else conditions, chaining to another macro, calling Java methods stored in external Java libraries, launching native applications, and writing trace information.

The Code Editor, a text editor that is launched from the Macro Editor, allows the user to view and modify the XML elements that make up the macro script, and also to cut and paste text through the system clipboard.
