How to Open

The Settings dialog is part of the Default Layout.



settings dialog, advanced

CommandLine is a freeform text box.  Use it to specify values for global variables (beginning in g_) to pass the recorder and player.  You can view which global variables are available in the source files (such as Player.js, SeSCommon.js, etc).



settings dialog, execution

CacheObjects: Remember object locations and try to reuse them for speed.  This is helpful with dialog based applications.
CommandInterval: Time interval (in milliseconds) between script commands during script execution.
IterationsCount: Your test script will be executed this many times consecutively during Playback.
ObjectLookupAttemptInterval: This is the time SmarteStudio will wait between attempts to locate an object.
ObjectLookupAttempts: This is the number of times SmarteStudio will attempt to locate an object.


Screen Capture

settings dialog, screen capture

Capture Execution: Save screen images for each recognized object into Report\\<Date&Time> subfolder.
Capture Recording: Save screen images for each action into Recording\\<Date&Time> subfolder.
Include in Report: Embed captured images into execution report during playback.
Widget Only: Save widget area only (True) or whole window (False).

BeautifySavedObjects affects how the Script Recorder writes object information to your test script.  If False, the object definition will be written as a single line:


var saved_script_objects={

   Balance:{"version":0,"object_type":"SeSSimulated","object_name":"Transaction Completed Successfully\n\nAccount 00000005  Balance:1046.00","object_class":"Static","object_role":"ROLE_SYSTEM_STATICTEXT","object_text":"Transaction Completed Successfully\n\nAccount 00000005  Balance:1046.00","locations":[{"locator_name":"Location","location":{"location":"4.4.4","window_name":"SmarteATM","window_class":"#32770"}},{"locator_name":"LocationPath","location":{"window_name":"SmarteATM","window_class":"#32770","path":[{"object_name":"Transaction Completed Successfully\n\nAccount 00000005  Balance:1046.00","object_class":"Static","object_role":"ROLE_SYSTEM_STATICTEXT"},{"object_name":"Transaction Completed Successfully\n\nAccount 00000005  Balance:1046.00","object_class":"Static","object_role":"ROLE_SYSTEM_WINDOW"},{"object_name":"SmarteATM","object_class":"#32770","object_role":"ROLE_SYSTEM_DIALOG"}]}}]}



If True, the object definition will be written in a manner that takes more space, but is easier to read and change:


var saved_script_objects={


   "version": 0,

   "object_type": "SeSSimulated",

   "object_name": "Transaction Completed Successfully\n\nAccount 

       00000005  Balance:1046.00",

   "object_class": "Static",

   "object_role": "ROLE_SYSTEM_STATICTEXT",

   "object_text": "Transaction Completed Successfully\n\nAccount

        00000005  Balance:1046.00",

   "locations": [


         "locator_name": "Location",

         "location": {

            "location": "4.4.4",

            "window_name": "SmarteATM",

            "window_class": "#32770"
