Definition

Context

The OnBase client and the action that will be taken in the given client when the configured mouse event or keyboard event is triggered. In other words, a context is added to a scrape event, based off the configured mouse/keyboard event, and then sent to a listener.

For example, The OnBase Client - Retrieve Documents context will retrieve documents in the OnBase Client.

Hotspot

The area of the screen where a keyboard or mouse event is performed, which executes a context.

For example, a user double-clicks (mouse event) on a form field labeled ‘Invoice' (hotspot) to retrieve an invoice from OnBase(context: Application Enabler - Retrieve Documents).

Keyboard Event

The keystroke that triggers a scrape event.

For example, Shift + F5.

Listener

The OnBase module that receives and processes an Application Enabler scrape event.

Mouse Event

The mouse action that triggers a scrape event.

For example, left double-click.
