Browser Settings Dialog

Top  Previous  Next



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)






How to Open


You can open this dialog box from the main Rapise Options dialog box (when the Tools tab is selected, it is listed as Browser Settings).


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
