Important information
This dialog box is available only for specific protocols. For a complete list of protocols and their associated nodes, see Protocol Compatibility Table.

User interface elements are described below (unlabeled elements are shown in angle brackets):

UI Element
Description
<Object List>
A list of the web objects. Each web object can be customized according to the other settings in this dialog box.
<Object Menu>
  • Add. Adds a new HTML tag object to the object list. Type in the name of the tag.

  • Delete. Deletes an object from the object list.

Event Menu
  • Add. Adds an event to the Event Name column of this object.

  • Delete. Deletes an event from the Event Name column of this object.

Event Name
A list of events associated with the object.
File Menu
  • Load Configuration. Loads a previously created custom configuration.

  • Save Configuration As. Saves the current configuration.

Listen
The criteria which determines when VuGen listens for an event.
  • Always. Always listen to the event.

  • If Handler. Listens to the event if a handler is attached to it. A handler is code in a Web page, typically a function or routine written in a scripting language, that receives control when the corresponding event occurs.

  • If Behavior. Listens to the event if a DHTML behavior is attached to it. A DHTML behavior encapsulates specific functionality or behavior on a page. When applied to a standard HTML element on a page, a behavior enhances that element's default behavior.

  • If Handler or Behavior. Listens to the event if either a handler or a behavior is attached to it.

  • Never. Never listens to the event.

Record
The criteria which determines when VuGen records an event.
  • Enabled. Records the event each time it occurs on the object as long as VuGen listens to the event on the selected object, or on another object to which the event bubbles. Bubbling is the process whereby, when an event occurs on a child object, the event can travel up the chain of hierarchy within the HTML code until it encounters an event handler to process the event.

  • Disabled. Does not record the specified event and ignores event bubbling where applicable.

  • Enabled on next event. Same as Enabled, except that it records the event only if the subsequent event occurs on the same object. For example, suppose a mouseover behavior modifies an image link. You may not want to record the mouseover event each time you happen to move the mouse over this image. Because only the image that is displayed after the mouseover event enables the link event, however, it is essential that the mouseover event is recorded before a click event on the same object.

Reset Settings
Resets the custom settings to the settings of your choice: basic, medium, or high.
