Click script action

Click action

In Desktop Browser scripts, the Click action defines where on a page to record a mouse click. It is inserted when you click an element, such as clicking a link to navigate or selecting a field.

In Mobile Device scripts, when you set Touch to OFF, clicking in the Mobile Recorder screen is recorded as a Click instead of as a Tap.

The Click action is defined by the following settings:

  • Target Window – The window where the click occurs.

  • Locators – The elements to be clicked.

  • Double click – The UI element requires a double click to operate it.

  • Pixel – The X and Y coordinates of the click on the element, measured from the upper left-hand corner of the element.
