TruClient Native Mobile enhancements

TruClient search bar

We've made usability enhancements by embedding a new search bar in the TruClient Development window.

  • Enables you to conduct a more precise and faster search, without needing to navigate through long scripts.

  • Extends the search to include steps, functions, and transactions, and scope to include current view or whole script (Actions, Run Logic, and Function Libraries tabs).

  • Supported in TruClient model and scripting modes (enables searching in coded actions and functions).

  • Highlights the matching parts of the results, making it quicker and easier to find content, particularly in large scripts.

  • Enables interacting with the script while the search is open, for example, to edit arguments.

See Search bar.

Performance metrics

We've extended and improved the support for performance metrics:

  • Added support in Chromium and TruClient Browser for displaying information about client-side page parsing, as well as JavaScript execution time for DOMContentLoaded, DOM Interactive, and Page Load events. See Performance metrics.

  • We've made throughput improvements for chunked and compressed responses on IE and Chromium browsers.

    Note: This improvement could impact SLA and transaction measurements. As a result, you might need to adjust test results, but changes to the application are not required.
