Valid contexts

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

Notes

  • As a general rule for all actions involving x,y coordinate arguments, the coordinates are specified in pixels relative to the top-left corner of the:
    • control, if the action has window and control arguments, and values are specified for both of them;
    • window, if the action has a value specified for a window argument, but has no control value specified (whether or not the control argument exists);
    • screen, if neither a window nor control value is specified, whether or not such arguments exist.
    Note: As for TestArchitect 8.4 Update 2, the coordinates are determined in pixels relative to the top-left corner of the working document.
    Restriction: This rule should not be taken to imply that any control or window arguments are optional if their associated actions don't explicitly state that.
  • 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.
  • You cannot interact with the control located outside the working document.
