Browser Settings Dialog
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 browser 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. Chrome normal, Chrome incognito mode, Chrome with specific screen size)
How to Open
You can open this dialog box using main menu
Settings > Browser or by pressing
... button in the top right corner of Rapise window.
This dialog box has the following toolbar controls:
- 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!
This section has various settings, each of which are described below:
- Browser Library - The type of browser being used, currently can be:
- Internet Explorer HTML
- Chrome HTML
- Firefox 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
- auto - This tries to locate an element on the screen, moves the mouse over it and then sends the appropriate DOM 'click' event (the default)
- event - Just sends the DOM click event to the element with no prior mouse-move
- click - Simulates an actual click on the element rather than sending a DOM click event
