Valid contexts

This action may be used within the following project items: test modules and user-defined actions.


  • button argument:
    • The button may be specified by either of two means: the caption text, or its numerical index. (Indexes are one-based; that is, numbering begins at 1.)
      Restriction: Using numerical index values is not supported for Oracle Forms and Microsoft UI Automation (UIA).
    • Enclose a numerical text string in quotation marks to differentiate it from a numerical index value. For example, if a text value of an item in a control has a value of 12, you should reference that item by passing 12 surrounded by quotation marks (that is, "12") instead of the numerical 12. Passing the numerical 12 is treated as a reference to an item with an index of 12, rather than an item holding a text string value of 12.
  • This action supports the <ignore> modifier. If the string <ignore> is present as the value of any of the arguments, or any argument contains an expression that evaluates to <ignore>, the action is skipped during execution.
