Thanks

Thanks for asking MirandaJ.

The short answer to this question is YES.

In fact, there are two commands in the eValid command set that control this:

Minimize "wid"

Maximize "wid"

In the script playback these commands will minimize or maximize the indicated window, respectively.

If wid = 0, or if the argument is absent so that wid = 0 is assumed, then the playback will continue without you being able to see what is going on in the MS Windows desktop screen.

The entire playback is done with the eValid executable, in the background, using the DOM operations triggered by whatever commands are in the script.

The BIG EXCEPTION is that if you have a command that requires the use of the desktop then the browser will automatically return to use of the desktop (the same as the "maximize" command).

Note that in LoadTest mode, all of the playbacks that are running in parallel are "headless" in that they run entirely minimized.
