Purpose

The Select an Application to Record... (SAR) Dialog appears before Recording takes place when testing desktop applications.

It queries the user for which program to record, as well as what Recording Library to use. If you are recording the same application for the second time then SAR is not shown. The recording proceeds to last used application if it is still available on the screen.

How To Open

To open the SAR Dialog, press the Record button on the toolbar.

Libraries

select an application to record dialog, library table

The Library table lists the available Recording Libraries.  Select the one appropriate to the process/program you will record.  If you select Auto, Rapise will attempt to choose the correct recording library for you.  See the Recording Library section for more information.

Available Applications

select an application to record dialog, select application table

The Available Applications table lists all of the processes running at the time you open the SAR dialog.  If the process you would like to record is already open, you can select if from the table.  Pick the appropriate recording library (above) first before you pick an application to record; your application choice will become unselected if you do not do it last.
