Delayed interrogation feature
Some controls disappear when they lose focus, making it difficult to interrogate the control. This often happens with menus in applications. The delayed interrogation feature lets you set a countdown timer that starts when you click the bullseye. This gives time to navigate the application to the desired control - you will see controls highlighted beneath the mouse as in normal interrogation mode. When the timer elapses the control that is selected will be interrogated.
Enabling the delayed interrogation feature
- Select the Delay check box.
- In the popup window, change the time-delay setting to the number of seconds the countdown timer should use, and then click OK.
Performing delayed interrogation
- Click the bullseye.
Result: The timer starts counting down.
- In the application, navigate to the control that you want to interrogate and
make sure it is highlighted.
Result: When the timer expires, Robot Studio interrogates the highlighted control. Previous topic Using the More menu options Next topic Interrogating a Windows or Web application
