eValid -- Self Monitoring Script Structure
eValid Home

Introduction
This example monitoring setup illustrates how to use an eValid script in scheduled playback and with result reporting entirely by email.

Outline of Solution
This example setup works as follows:

Script
Here is the eValid playback script that illustrates how this is done. As is the case in most scripts like this, the recording is made "from life" and then hand-modified for the needed control effects.

# Recording made on: Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1

# This script is demonstrates eValid operations in an email-only 
# monitoring application.
