Learning to use the Surfer Automation objects in a script may appear daunting at first. Most tasks, however, can be accomplished using just a few Surfer objects. Once you become familiar with these primary objects and learn how to "drill through" the object hierarchy, you will be able to access most of Surfer’s features from your scripts.
The online help is the complete reference for all of the Surfer Automation objects, their properties, and their methods. The object model chart should serve as your guide for navigating through the object hierarchy. Use the Help | Automation Help command in Surfer, or the Help | Surfer Automation Help in Scripter to see the online help reference.
This section shows how to access the Surfer Automation objects using the Scripter BASIC language. If you are not familiar with computer programming, you may benefit from a programming tutorial. See the Suggested Reading topic for recommendations. Refer to Writing Scripts for more information about Scripter BASIC.
