What are the kinds of circumstances/conditions one would use the eValid Save Selected Image / Save Selected Text commands?
Thanks for asking CallieT.
eValid has a series of commands which extend the user's control over the script playback by being able to save an image from the cache, or which save a selected text specified in the script file.
These commands can help a webmaster identify unwanted changes made to the site being tested.
Follow these simple steps to be able to save selected images and/or to save selected text from your recording:
(1) Start your recording.
(2) Select an image or text from a page by dragging your cursor over the object until it is highlighted.
(3) Depending on the object selected, from the pull down, select "Record > Save > Selected Image or Selected Text".
(4) You'll be prompted for the folder name and file name to use to contain the image or text.
(5) The recording engine will insert a SaveSelectedText or SaveSelectedImage command in the script with the necessary parameters to identify the exact text or the specific image to be saved during playback.
Note: The location where the image or text is saved is usually at the current working directory of the script unless a complete path is provided in the script file.
