autECLScreenDesc Class

autECLScreenDesc is the class that is used to describe a screen for HCL's Host Access Class Library Screen Recognition Technology. It uses all four major planes of the presentation space to describe it (text, field, extended field, and color planes), as well as the cursor position.

Using the methods provided on this object, the programmer can set up a detailed description of what a given screen looks like in a host side application. Once an autECLScreenDesc object is created and set, it may be passed to either the synchronous WaitFor... methods provided on autECLPS, or it may be passed to autECLScreenReco, which fires an asynchronous event if the screen matching the autECLScreenDesc object appears in the PS.
