Scripting Overview

Qt Script provides access to many of the functions supported in the Harmony interface. With Qt Script, you can automate a number of Harmony functions to speed the completion of various repetitive tasks.

Qt Script is an object-oriented scripting language based on the ECMAScript standard, like JavaScript and JScript. However, there are some differences that distinguish it from these scripting languages which are familiar to web programmers.

To use scripts prepared by other users, you must import those scripts. You can add buttons to the Scripting toolbar for quick and easy access.
