Editing action settings

Specific action settings can be changed from the defaults to fine-tune script performance.

To edit an action setting:

  1. Click the action in the time line of the loaded script.
  2. If the action settings are not displayed, click below the time line to display them.
  3. Change the settings.

For details, refer to Script actions and select the help page for the action you are editing. For advanced details, refer to Script actions and properties.

Evaluation syntax

All actions that have text fields can use evaluation syntax. Evaluation syntax causes the text to be evaluated at runtime. To use evaluation syntax, surround any text with backticks ( ` ). Enter any valid JavaScript between the backticks. Evaluation syntax is commonly used to access parameters via FormFill script action actions, because it enables you to set the value of any form element on a page. For more information, see Using backtick syntax for JavaScript evaluation.
