How to use the Exploratory script

The Exploratory script is most useful when you need to view the passed data for a hook. By attaching the Exploratory script to a hook, the Caller Information Screen will pop-up when that hook is fired. The caller information screen lists all the controls on the screen, along with their IDs, names, data type, format, value, etc. By identifying the ID for a control, you can read or write data to the program by using Variable.Passed.

➢Go to System Support> Administration> GAB Script Hook Maintenance

➢Select a Hook (example: 10120)

➢Click New Seq
