Span action

Span is a mobile-only action that simulates a user touching the screen of a mobile device with two fingers and performing a span gesture, pulling the two fingers away from each other on the screen. This action is only supported in the Mobile and Chrome agents.

The Span control is only enabled during the recording phase when the mobile application allows for pinch/span gestures on that particular page. If the application does not directly support these gestures on the given page, the control is disabled.

The following properties are stored within this action:

  • target – Indicates which element on the page the user is performing the span on.
  • xStart1, yStart1 – The x,y coordinates for the start point of the first “finger” in the span gesture.
  • xEnd1, yEnd1 – The x,y coordinates for the end point of the first “finger” in the span gesture.
  • xStart2, yStart2 – The x,y coordinates for the start point the second “finger” in the span gesture.
  • xEnd2, yEnd2 – The x,y coordinates for the end point of the second “finger” in the span gesture.
