The <playmacro> element terminates the current macro and launches another macro (see PlayMacro action (<playmacro> element)). This process is called chaining macros.

There are restrictions on where in the <actions> element you can place a <playmacro> element (see Adding a PlayMacro action).

If you are using the ZIE Host Access Toolkit then you need to perform the following actions:
  • Use the MacroManager bean or implement your own MacroIOProvider class. Only managed macros can be chained.
  • Assign a name to the macro. Macros are chained by macro name. Macro names are case-sensitive!
