Press Alt-Windows-I to open a program called Interactive JScript (IJS). A Window-Eyes script, InteractiveJScript.vbs, responds to this key by running the program, ijs.exe. If the program was already open, its window will be activated. Interactive JScript is a console mode environment that can dynamically execute code in the JScript .NET language. This is a superset of the JScript language hosted by the Window-Eyes scripting engine. The home page of JScript .NET is at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/72bd815a(VS.80).aspx IJS requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 to be installed on your computer. There is a good chance that it is already there. If not, versions are available for almost any version of Windows at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&displaylang=en IJS may be used to build snippets of code to be evaluated by IronCOM, a COM server library that provides Window-Eyes scripts with access to functionality of the .NET Framework. The IronCOM installer is available at http://EmpowermentZone.com/comsetup.exe IJS may also be used to query documentation of .NET types and COM objects, the latter requiring that a particular COM server be registered on the computer (tlbinf32.dll). This library is installed in the user profile folder and registered automatically by the Window-Eyes script the first time it is run. IJS recognizes when Window-Eyes is active, and uses its API to speak messages directly. You may need to inform Window-Eyes of the type of caret present via the Control-Insert-C hotkey. One use of IJS is to test expressions that use the Window-Eyes object model during script development, similar to use of the Immediate Window script by GW Micro. IJS also lets you query what objects, properties, parameters, data types, and return values are available to scripts, regardless of language. For example, at the IJS prompt, query the members of the Keyboard object like this: > com we.Keyboard resulting in the following output: _Keyboard _Application = Application Dispatch = Parent Keys = Keys _Window = FilterActiveWindow _Window = FilterActiveWindow _Window = FilterFocusedWindow _Window = FilterFocusedWindow Process = FilterProcess Process = FilterProcess Boolean = KeyDescriberActive Boolean = Down(Long index) Boolean = Toggled(Long index) Void = InsertKeyDown(Long index) Void = InsertKeyUp(Long index) Void = InsertKey(Long index, KeyModifiers mods) _Key = Key(String keyName) RegisteredKey = RegisterHotkey(Variant Key, Variant function, Optional Variant filterBy, Optional Variant Parameter, Optional Variant FirstPress) RegisteredKey = RegisterCursorKey(Variant Key, Variant function, Optional Variant filterBy, Optional Variant Parameter) _Key = Capture() Void = WaitForAllKeysUp() Void = InsertUnicodeKey(Long Key) Another example is to query what objects and members contain the word synthesizer as a substring: > lib we synthesizer with this output: NumberMode nmSynthesizer = 2 _Application Synthesizers = Synthesizers BrowseModeLanguageVerbosity Boolean = AutoSwitchSynthesizer Boolean = AutoSwitchSynthesizer Synthesizers Synthesizers _Synthesizer = Active _Synthesizer = Item(Long index) Synthesizer Below is the online documentation of the IJS program, wich is available by entering the help command at its > prompt: Type a JScript statement, followed by Enter (a closing semicolon is not needed). Use UpArrow to repeat a command. End a line of input with a space and underline ( _) to continue a multiline block of code. The prompt then changes from a > to _ character. Most classes of the .NET Framework 2.0 may be used in expressions. Variable types are inferred. To ease typing, the following namespaces are imported (there classes may be referenced without a namespace prefix): Accessibility Microsoft.VisualBasic System System.Collections System.ComponentModel System.Data System.Diagnostics System.Drawing System.IO System.Net System.Reflection System.Runtime.InteropServices System.Text System.Text.RegularExpressions System.Web System.Windows.Forms System.Xml In addition, several built-in commands and functions are available. A command name is lower case, with a space before each argument, and no quotes around it. A function name is lower camel case (words after the first are capitalized). quit = end this program cls = clear the screen eval FileName = execute a JScript file eval clipboard = execute JScript code on the clipboard cmd = pass any statement to the Windows command interpreter (cmd.exe) dos = execute a console-mode command and display its output log FileName = log output to a file log off = suspend logging pause on = pause output after the screen fills (default) pause off = continue output after the screen fills log on = continue logging net Type = list members of .NET Type constructors Type = list its constructors only events Type = list its events only fields Type = list its fields only methods Type = list its methods only properties Type = list its properties only com Object Match = list members of COM Object, optionally matching a substring objects Object Match = list objects in its library, optionally matching a substring lib Object Match = list objects and members in its library, optionally matching a substring dir Type/Object = directory of members of either .NET Type or COM Object doc Type = documentation for constructors of .NET Type doc Type Member = documentation for Member of .NET Type comCreate(sProgID) = alias for new ActiveXObject(sProgID) output(Object) = alias for Console.WriteLine(Object) If Window-Eyes is running, its Application object is automatically assigned to the we variable for typing convenience. This global script requires GW Toolkit.
