Browser Settings Dialog

Purpose

 

This dialog box displays the list of native (not using Selenium) web browsers that have been configured for use by Rapise and lets you create a new profile, modify a profile or make a new profile based on an existing one.

 

This feature is useful if you have several different versions of a web browser on the same machine (e.g. Firefox Latest vs. Firefox ESR, or different versions of Chrome portable) or if you want to be able to run a browser with different command-line options (e.g. IE normal, IE safe mode, IE emulating a specific version)

You can open this dialog box from the main Rapise Options ribbon.

 

Menu Options

 

This dialog box has the following menu options:

·Select Profile - This dropdown list lets you select a different web browser profile to be displayed in the dialog.

·Test - This button will test the connection from Rapise to the specified browser

·Duplicate - This button will create a new browser profile based on the currently viewed one.

·Create - This button will create a new empty browser profile that you can edit.

·Rename - This button will change the name of the current browser profile being edited.

·Delete - This button will delete the currently displayed browser profile. There is no undo, so be careful!

 

Profile Options

 

This section has various settings, each of which are described below:

·Browser Library - The type of browser being used, currently can be:

oInternet Explorer HTML

oChrome HTML

oFirefox HTML

·Browser Path - The path to the location of the web browser executable (e.g. chrome.exe, iexplore.exe, firefox.exe) on the computer

·CMD Line Parameters - Any command-line parameters to pass to the web browser (e.g. -extoff for IE safe mode)

·Default Click Mode -Species the default 'click mode' for tests using this web browser profile

oauto - This tries to locate an element on the screen, moves the mouse over it and then sends the appropriate DOM 'click' event (the default)

oevent - Just sends the DOM click event to the element with no prior mouse-move

oclick - Simulates an actual click on the element rather than sending a DOM click event
