I require a program to be built that when activated will perform a series of tasks/actions on another (windows-based) software program which I have.
There are two input fields in this software which I want the program to address.
Field 1: drop-down menu containing around 60 different options.
Field 2: (is on a different tab on the software user interface) a field in which you type a number from 0 to 359 (these are degrees).
I would like the program to be built to perform the following sequence of events:
1. Select drop-down menu option 1 from field 1
2. Enter '0' into field 2
3. Click the 'calculate' button. The software performs a series of calculations (takes anywhere from 10 seconds to 2 minutes) and produces a results report on another tab. On the report a number from 0.0 to 10.0 is calculated and shown.
4. Record the number from 0.0 to 10.0 that has been generated into an excel spreadsheet or similar, along with the 2 input fields that were used in that calculation.
Then repeat these steps in the following way:
a) change input field 2 to '45', then push 'calculate', record results
change input field 2 to '90', then push 'calculate', record results
change input field 2 to '135', then push 'calculate', record results
change input field 2 to '180', then push 'calculate', record results
change input field 2 to '225', then push 'calculate', record results
change input field 2 to '270', then push 'calculate', record results
change input field 2 to '315', then push 'calculate', record results
b) once this sequence has completed, then change input field 1 to drop-down option 2 and start over. and so on until for each of the 60 drop down options in field 1, 8 seperate calculations have been made using the 8 diffent inputs for field 2 - and each time the resulting 0.0-10.0 number has been recorded along with its corresponding field inputs.
Ideally I would like to be able to select which of the 1-60 options in field 1 (drop down menu) will be used in the sequence. Sometimes I want the 8 calculations performed for all 60 field 1 options, but other times I want to select just a few field 1 options to be apart of the sequence.
Once set up I want this program to run automatically so that after a few hours or however long it takes to run through the sequence I have a report with the generated number from each calculation along with its individual corresponding field inputs.
Upon acceptance of the job I will send you the software program (around 5mb) so you can see and understand it.
Payment will be provided upon successful completion of the task.
