In this webinar, Carlos Anderson, PhD shares practical guidance for developing, debugging, and deploying scripts based on the Eclipse Scripting Application Programming Interface (ESAPI). We show you how to run your scripts directly from Visual Studio, allowing you to easily test and step through your code line by line. We discuss the advantages of wrapping the ESAPI with your own code, including the ability to handle multiple versions of the ESAPI and to run long-running tasks asynchronously.
We introduce the Model View View-Model (MVVM) architecture for developing scripts that use the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), and show you how to add undo and redo capabilities to your scripts with MVVM. We briefly discuss third-party libraries that easily add common features to your scripts, such as on-screen data plots and PDF reports. Finally, we demonstrate our ClearCheck API for automating tasks in ClearCheck.
Basic scripting experience is recommended.
