AS400 Automation

Hi I don’t have prior experience automating within an AS400 type application (green screen?) but my client has a use case we need to assess.

I have solved for the feasibility of using hotkeys to navigate through the application for data entry - however some data points require an understanding of what is on the screen (AS400 version of a dropdown/pick list) - my question, does anyone have experience automating on this type of application where you need consume information on the screen to make a decision? Is it possible? There is no backend option (API etc.) for this.


Yes, it is possible. To read the information, the best variation for me was GetText and Regex.
