User interface elements are described below:

Recording Settings Properties

UI Element
Description
Record rendering-related property values

Records the values of the rendering-related properties of DOM objects (for example, offsetTop), so that they can be used during replay. Note that this may significantly decrease the replay speed.

Default value: disabled.

Record 'click' by mouse events

Records mouse clicks by capturing mouse events instead of capturing the click() method. Enable when the recorded application uses the DOM click() method, to prevent the generation of multiple functions for the same user action.

Default value: enabled.

Record socket level data

Enables the recording of socket level data. If you disable this option you will need to manually add the starting URL before recording. In addition, you will be unable to regenerate the script on an HTML level.

Default value: enabled.

Generate snapshots for Ajax steps

Enables generation of snapshots for Ajax steps. Enabling this option can result in errors during recording.

Default value: disabled.

Code Generation Settings Properties

UI Element
Description
Enable generation of out-of-context steps

Creates a URL-based script for ActiveX controls and Java applets, so that they will be replayed. Since these functions are not part of the native recording, they are referred to as out-of-context recording.

Default value: disabled.

Enable automatic browser title verification

Enables automatic browser title verification.

Default value: disabled.

Perform a title verification
  • for each navigation. Performs a title verification only after a navigation. When a user performs several operations on the same page, such as filling out a multi-field form, the title remains the same and verification is not required.

  • for each step. Performs a title verification for each step to make sure that no step modified the browser title. A modified browser title may cause the script to fail.

  • using the URL if the title is missing. For browser windows without a title, perform a title verification for each step using its URL.
