Discovery Mode helps access configuration information from the line-of-business application screen quickly and easily. This option is available for Smart-Screen, Windows, HTML, Java, and Dynamics GP-based applications. Discovery Mode does not support text-based screens, applications using tabbing, or screens configured for OCR.

To use Discovery Mode:

  1. Open the line-of-business application.
  2. Open the Application Enabler executable and open the appropriate configuration file.
  3. Right-click the system tray icon and select Discovery Mode, or click the Discovery Mode button from the Application Enabler toolbar.
  4. Place your cursor over the enabled application. A box will display showing configuration information, such as the screen name of the enabled application, the hotspot name that is hovered over, configured Document Types, configured keyword mappings, and keyboard and mouse events. See the following example:

To turn off Discovery Mode, right-click the system tray icon and select Discovery Mode, or click the Discovery Mode button from the Application Enabler toolbar.

When using Discovery Mode:

  • You can still execute context events and run Application Enabler in Demo Mode or in Application Enabler Live.

  • If the Application Enabler - Run Script context is used, the script name will be displayed next to the context name in the box displaying configuration information.

  • If preprocess scripts are configured, they will run.

  • The box displaying configuration information may be slow to render with certain Smart-Screen applications (for example, Silverlight).
