What about Recording Non-Web Applications within eValid?
I was referring to desktop applications in particular.
Thanks for posting your question GCombs.
A very good example is Adobe Acrobat. It is at times important to be able to record within these applications rather than just being able to record normally.
(1) Locate a page where it requires the browser to load the Adobe Acrobat reader in order to view the page correctly.
(2) Once the application has been launched, begin your recording and turn on the Application Recording Mode.
You will see in the script window that a commented line shows that the application mode has been turned on.
In some cases where there is no application present in the page, the Application Mode Recording will not initialize.
(3) Go through the page just as you normally do.
In the script windows, all the user actions are recorded just as in a normal mode, including keyboard events and text inputs.
(4) As you play back the script, all the commands performed within the application is replayed by eValid with the utmost ease.
Tip: To see if your page has an application or an applet, simply view the source of the page and look for tags which either refer to it as an application or an applet.
The application should normally contain an embed tag or an object tag.
