SelectColumn: Set Focus on Column

Tag: SelectColumn

The SelectColumn action will emulate selecting the column in a grid.

Detailed Description

It is necessary to giving focus to a column before automating functions in the grid that operate from a column perspective.

The action SelectColumn generally uses only two attributes: Target and ColumnID.

Due to the nature of consoleEZ, it is possible to have multiple grids and consoles open at once.

The way to reference a specific grid when using either the Log Analyzer or the Volume Analyzer (Target="LogAnalyzer" or Target="VolumeAnalyzer") is through two attributes:

      1. Server: this is the name as found in the 'Select server' list of the 'Open Server' dialog
      2. Index this is the console window index number

        <SelectColumn target="VolumeAnalyzer" server="Acme01/ACME" index="1" columnID="B2">

      The script above will select the second column on the [1] Volume Analyzer grid for the server 'Acme01/ACME'.
