Build a basic MetaBot to automate input to a web page using the Enterprise Client

MetaBots encapsulate assets and logic to do common processes and tasks. Different MetaBots can be used by different TaskBots, thereby providing a reusable library of functions.

This task adds to the TaskBot created and modified in the Build a basic bot using the Enterprise Client and Edit a basic bot using the Enterprise Client.

Important: Verify that MyFirstTaskBot.atmx is complete and fully functional.
Complete each of the subtasks in the order they are listed:
Step 1: Create a basic MetaBot
Build a MetaBot in this task. This MetaBot takes parameters (data) from a TaskBot and adds the data to a web form.
Step 2: Add an asset to a MetaBot
Add screens, DLLs, and folders as assets to MetaBots.
Step 3: Create Logic for a MetaBot
You must add Logic to MetaBots to manage the assets and make the functionality available for use by other bots.
Step 4: Import data to a MetaBot
Import data from variables to fill in the fields of a web page.
Step 5: Replace task steps with a MetaBot
Use MetaBots to encapsulate assets and logic to do common processes and tasks. MetaBots are reusable by other bots, allowing Bot developers to create a library of MetaBots for reuse.
Step 6: Verify a basic MetaBot
Run a bot from the Workbench to verify everything works as expected.
