Can you tell me what the difference between the Wait Time vs. Delay Time in eValid?
Thanks for asking about that LMarvick.
In eValid scripts there are two types of delay function which enable the script to maintain a current state of synchronization depending on the type of playback.
In addition, delays are valuable to assure that the scripts are accurate replicas of actual user behavior.
o Wait Command
The "Wait" command is usually recorded automatically in the script between command executions.
You get these Wait commands when you have Real Time Recording selected in your Preferences.
(You can turn that off if you like.)
When executed, this command reproduces the amount of time a user takes before recording another set of instructions in the page being tested.
During script playback the Wait Time Multiplier value in the eValid preferences can be set to amplify or contract the timing responses recorded by the user.
Setting this value to 1.0 represents real time recording.
Choosing 0.5 makes halves the wait times and speeds up the playback by a factor of approximately two.
Setting the Wait Time Multiplier to 0.0 multiplies all wait times by 0.0, and this effectively forces the delays all to be eliminated.
This is the fastest possible playback; it is the same as if you had made the recording without the Real Time Recording feature enabled.
o Delay Command
The "Delay" command is part of the extrinsic commands list for eValid.
You have to edit this command into an eValid script.
When executed, the "Delay" command waits for the amount of time specified in milliseconds, ignoring the Wait Time Multiplier and all Wait Ceiling values specified in your eValid preferences.
