Valid contexts

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


  • The effect of the enter built-in action depends on the class of the control. For example, for a combo box control, the enter action selects an item from the list.
  • In some special cases on a web platform, the enter action may trigger an unexpected or undesired event. To address such cases, it is suggested that you use the set built-in action to assign a value to text box controls. Unlike enter, set avoids the triggering of events.
  • 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.
