To simplify test creation, TestArchitect includes the
Action Recorder, a tool which records your manual operations on the application
under test, captures the resulting screen output, automatically generates keyword action lines,
and writes the action lines to your test. The recorded action lines can then be replayed during
automation to simulate user actions against the application under test.
- The Action Recorder is not available in the TestArchitect
and macOS machines.
- For applications running on desktop web browsers, the Action Recorder is currently
supported only in
Explorer. Support for other browsers is not yet available. If you insist on
using the Action Recorder on unsupported web browsers, you will see the following warning
- To generate a move mouse action
during a recording session, you need to let the Action Recorder know the destination point of
the move. But simply clicking at a given point generates a click action, which may not be what you want. Instead, once your
mouse is at the desired destination point, indicate that fact by using the key combination
Ctrl + Alt + Left-click. That indicates to the Action Recorder both
the fact that you wish to generate a mouse move action, and the location
for the mouse move.
