Valid contexts

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

Notes

  • node path argument:
    • The node path may be specified by its display text or by a numerical index representing its cardinal placement in its branch, with index values starting at 1.
    • If a node path of more than one item must be specified, use forward slashes ( / ) as delimiters between node levels.
  • menu item argument:
    • The menu item may be specified by its caption property or numerical index representing its cardinal placement in the menu, with index values starting at 1.
    • If a menu path of more than one item must be specified, use arrow symbols ( -> ) as delimiters between menu items. For example, Vehicles->Cars->Four-door sedans.
  • 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.
