"ScreenScraper SDK long ago became our most important screen scrape engine and has actually let my company bring respectability for screen scrapers back to our industry.
My competitor had trashed the screen scraper reputation with their junky screen OCR tactics."
- This is a real quote from a customer.
Forget about screen OCR taking up seconds to complete. Typical results are in the 0 - 60 milliseconds range.
Yes, that's true. Regardless font, size, color and language the text on screen is retrieved with 100% accuracy. Works with UNICODE, that means it includes far - east and left to right languages.
According to Wikipedia screen scraping techniques are fragile and error prone. We have spent the last 7 years perfecting them. Our stress test suite regularly performs 1 million consecutive scraping in different applications. Impact on the target application is minimal and not noticeable to the user.
One of the biggest challenges in screen scraping and UI Automation area is identification of GUI elements (windows, dialogs, controls) between different runs of the app that displays them. Using screen coordinates to locate a GUI element on the screen it is not an option. We generate a plain text query selector that uniquely identifies controls among its siblings.
UI Automation and screen scraping works together to achieve code free integration between 2 systems. We offer a very simple and consistent way to manipulate the GUI controls exposed by other apps. You can click, write text, select items, and check controls in the same manner regardless of controls underlying technology.
There are just so many GUI frameworks we can hardly keep count. Just to name a few we support: Old Win32 API, Winforms, WPF, Silverlight, Java (AWT, JRE, SWT), MS and Open Office, Adobe Reader & Pro, FoxPro, IE and FireFox, Flash, Flex, QT, DOS console, Terminal emulation and green screen software. We literally can automate and grab text from any apps created with any of these UI technologies.
License to redistribute runtime comes conveniently under two models: royalty based or unlimited redistributable license
Well, we made any possible effort to make this technology easy to understand but we recognize that screen scraping and UI
automation scenarios are quite complex and support is crucial in having our customers squeeze the juice out of it.
Every purchase comes with one year free support and upgrades. Support is offered by developers with great expertise in the field.
We also offer professional services to help you jump start your project.
