eValid script errors concerns

Postby StanleyA » Thu Apr 30, 2020 8:48 am

Good morning.

What does eValid do if the script contains an error?

How does eValid interpret these errors in the script?

Thanks

Thanks for posting your question StanleyA.

In eValid there is script pre-scan which actually converts a proposed playback script into an internal form, and this step finds any syntax errors.

If a script is not syntactically correct, then you get an immediate warning from eValid that there is a script error and playback does not proceed.

The thinking is, if the script is from a "from life" recording then it is know to be syntactically correct (eValid generated it).

If the script was edited manually the assumption is that the user/author would want to know immediately if there was a syntax error.

eValid does that.

However, if three are semantic errors in a script, then the philosophy is that evalid can't read the user's mind.

So the meaning of a playback in terms of what it makes the browser that is being driven by the script has to be the responsibility of the script writer.
