General Recorder page

You use the General Recorder page to indicate options for recording Functional Tester scripts, such as excluding an executable from being recorded and setting the delay before recording a mouse action or a keystroke. You can also select or clear the option to open the test object map if there is a new test object in the application.

This page has the following controls:

In the Use Default field for each control, clear the check box to edit the value in the field or select the check box to restore the default value.

Record Test Object relative Verification Point -- When selected, the test object details are not recorded while inserting the verification points.

Maximum identifier length-- Option to control the maximum number of characters used in a Test Object identifier in the script.

Processes excluded from testing -- Enter the executable name of the process that you do not want to record. Separate multiple processes with commas.

Only processes that are dynamically enabled must be added in this field.

Delay before recording a mouse action -- Sets the delay from the end of a mouse action to the command that appears in the recording monitor. A shorter delay may limit the quality of recording of actions that cause state changes. A value of 0.0 causes a delay until the beginning of the next action. If the value is lower than the double-click interval, Functional Tester uses the double-click interval.

Delay before recording a keystroke -- Sets the delay from the last keystroke to the inputKeys command that appears in the recording monitor. A value of 0.0 causes a delay until the beginning of the next action.

Restore Defaults -- Restores the default values on this page.

Apply -- Saves your changes without closing the dialog box.

Bring up object map if there is new test object -- When selected, opens the test object map if a test object in the application is not currently in the map.

To open: Click Window > Preferences. In the left pane, expand Functional Test and click Recorder.
