I would like to run a third-party program or script on my scan images or Deep Zoom images. Is this possible?


Yes, it is. You can add up to two buttons to the Job Manager that run scripts or commands you specify.

The buttons you add can run executables or scripts that interact with your scanned jobs or Deep Zoom images. uScope Navigator can pass arguments containing all manner of job-specific or image-specific details. Refer to the following knowledge base article for more details about the arguments uScope Navigator can pass to your external commands:

Job Manager Button scripts are added via the Program Options — Job Manager Buttons tab.

To create a job manager button...

  1. Select the Job Manager Buttons tab from the Program Options dialog. Here, you can define buttons that appear when a Scan Set or Deep Zoom Image is selected.
  2. Enter third-party commands under When a Scan is Selected to create buttons that appear when a scan set is selected or under When a Deep Zoom is Selected to create buttons that appear when a Deep Zoom image is selected.
  3. For Command, enter the exact command line you want to execute. Enter C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe to run a Windows Script Host file.
  4. For Legend, enter the text you want to appear on the button.
  5. For Parameters, enter any parameters that are required. Here, you would enter the path to the Windows Script Host file along with its arguments.
  6. For Tool Tip, enter some descriptive text that appears when hovering the mouse over the button.

After adding the Job Manager button, selecting a Scan or a Deep Zoom Image from the Job Manager displays the button in the bottom menu.
