What does the Desktop/Web button do in edit screen?


#1

Intuitively I thought if you switched between one or the other it would have been equivalent to switching between the Desktop\Browser application but doesn’t look like it. Couldn’t find any documentation for this how it works exactly.

Yes, that is what it does. In more detail:

If the switch is on Desktop then:

  • the editor highlights “Web browser only” commands that are skipped during desktop mode replay e. g Open or Tab.

  • If you click the “Run” icon, or select “Play from here”, the editor runs the macro in the SeeShell Desktop version. Technically this mean the editor internally uses the API command [CreateObject] with CreateObject ("SeeShell").

If the switch is on Web then:

  • the editor would highlight “Desktop only” commands if any (currently there are no Desktop only commands)

  • If you click the “Run” icon, or select “Play from here”, the editor runs the macro in the SeeShell Browser. Technically this mean the editor internally uses the API command [CreateObject] with CreateObject ("SeeShell.Browser").
