UI Capture supports the capture of Intellisense keystrokes as UI events. Keystrokes applied with UI elements, such as textboxes and form fields, are bundled together into a single UI event for capture.
To support proper replay of the visitor experience, RTV can be configured to break out these aggregated keystroke events into individual UI events for each keystroke. When keystrokes are broken out in RTV, you can see the characters that are displayed in the order that the visitor entered them.
Through RTV, you can enable or disable this functionality at the global level. When this option is applied, the Viewable Pages list is populated with
KeyUp UI events for each keystroke.
KeyUpUI event page and select
Disable global BreakOutKeystrokes. The global setting is disabled, and more context menu items are available for configuring individual items.
You can toggle or re-enable global keystroke breakouts in the Advanced Options tabs of RTV.
Configuring for individual elements
In a typical web application, Intellisense keystroke support is enabled for a limited set of fields, such as search fields or address fields. Instead of applying keystroke breakouts at the global level, you can apply it to individual elements on the screen.
To apply keystroke breakout to an individual screen element, complete the following steps.
- Disable the global keystroke breakout setting.
- To enable keystroke breakout on an individual element, right-click a
KeyUpUI event in the Navigable Pages List that applies to the element and select
Add BreakOutKeystrokes rule for this element.
The replay rule to break out the keystrokes into individual UI events is created and applied to the individual element whenever it is replayed.
