Thanks in advance!

Thanks for asking TanyaA.

Turns out that eValid knows about the "screen size".

When you start a recording eValid always shows a command that looks like this:

ScreenSize 1680 1050

If you play back on an equal-size or large screen, no problem. Eveything is good.

If you playback on a SMALLER screen size, eValid warns you about that.

So what you COULD do to simulate the smaller screen on a mobile device is to edit the recorded ScreenSize declaration to the size of the screen you want eValid to lay things out on.

For example:

Screensize 340 210

Provided that that declared size is SMALLER than your current screen size then all is well. eValid will attempt to render whatever content it receives into the specified (smaller) screen, upper left hand corner of the large screen it actually has.

One note of caution. Any absolute mouse clicks with coordinates that put the point of the click outside of the smaller screen size will cause problems.

As you would expect.
