Macro script

A macro script is an XML script used to store a Z and I Emulator for Web macro. You can view and edit the XML text of a macro script by using the Code Editor (shown in Code Editor). The Macro Editor displays the same information that you see in the Code Editor, but the Macro Editor displays the information in a more user-friendly format, using listboxes, checkboxes, input fields, and the other controls of the graphical user interface (see Macro Editor).

Learning a little about the XML elements of the macro language will greatly increase your understanding of important topics, including the following:
  • How to use the Macro Editor.
  • How macro playback works.
  • How to build effective macros.

Therefore this book frequently refers not only to the input fields, buttons, and listboxes of the Macro Editor but also to the corresponding XML elements in which the same information is stored.
