Recording w/x-origin Frames
Need Starting URL***
Not x-Origin Frames****

* If your website contains cross-frames, that is, frames that refer to another web domain, it is necessary to add a parameter (
) to your Chrome browser profile. See
Recording scripts using Internet Explorer works well in general. However, as you are recording, the highlighting is shown around the whole window rather than the specific object.
** In cross-frames, not all objects are recognized.
*** With Firefox, in order to record successfully, you must navigate to the desired URL
starting the recording.
In general, playing scripts works with all three browsers.
**** The only current limitation is that Firefox does not play commands within cross-frames. (OK with regular frames)
