Tag: Echo

The action Echo is used to insert an automation trace into a script, as well as re-enable the trace after it has been disabled earlier in the script.

Detailed Description

The default mode of the Echo action is <Echo Mode="True"/>. Thus, it is unnecessary to specify this mode unless <Echo Mode="False"/> has been specified earlier in the script and you wish to reactivate the automation trace within the script.

Using the Value attribute, you can specify a text readout to include in the automation console output. This can be done multiple different times within a script.

The FilePath attribute allows you to save all automation trace and error messages to a file.

If <Echo Mode="False"/> has been specified, the automation trace messages and errors will still be output into your file.
