Swipe script action

Swipe action

This action applies to Mobile Device scripts only. It is only supported in the Mobile and Chrome agents.

In Mobile Device scripts, the Swipe action displays movements of the mouse that simulate the movement of a fingertip on a mobile device screen; for example, recentering a map or swiping across the screen to display another screen.

The following settings can be edited for this action:

  • Target Window – The window where the swipe occurred

  • Locators – The element on the page where the swipe occurred

  • Coordinates – The location(s) of the swipe, measured from the upper left-hand corner of the element.
