I found this: http://venussoftcorp...05/thefolderspy.html

Has anyone ever used this? It looks like I could possibly use this to read new .txt documents created in a particular folder (when the screenshot is created and read as a number it will create a new .txt with the name of the number it captured).

This would take care of my email/SMS problem!

Forgot to mention:  Welcome to the site!  Nice to see you getting stuck in!
Thank you! This is a cool place!

IMHO, SMS notifications are a nightmare to setup...not to mention the costs involved with doing so (such things are not usually free), but I can see that the e-mail notifications should (albeit rather difficult to do) be possible.

Not something I have time to do myself, and not really something I can see a huge market for.

Question: Is the screenshot being taken of a webpage?
I ask because you could do something like this with a webpage scraper, and run the if statements from there...I assume this would be simpler
This would be screen-grabbing a region of an application. I've done all of the processes manually, so I know how it can work methodically but I'm not sure how to batch/script it.

So, I had this idea to utilize Screenshot Captor to alert me when the captured screen falls below a certain threshold (number). I need the script to continuously take screenshots of a fixed region on my screen (every 10 minutes for example), print the captured image to PDF, open the created PDF in Adobe Acrobat, run the native text recognition function, copy the recognized text (in this case a number), possibly paste that value into a notepad document and run some if/then statements to determine whether I need to be alerted or not.

Is this possible? I know some coding but I don't have a lot of experience.
